No love like family love.

17 years ago...
17 years later...

I love family gatherings. Besides awesomely awesome food, games, stories, movies... families often reminisce and look through old photos and videos. Today was my cousins birthday and we found a photo of us from 17 years ago, what better way to celebrate than to re-create that shot? 

I'm not quite sure why we're posing this way but it sure makes for an epic photo. haha! In front are my 3 cousins and my brother and I in the back. The photo from today doesn't look quite as good as we aren't in the same height order anymore... the boys have caught up to me!!! ;P 

p.s - dontcha just love my glasses complete with string to make sure it doesn't fall on the ground? haha!

What is your fave part about family gatherings?

Are the facial expressions (in the photo 17 years later) supposed to mimic the ones you guys had in the picture 17 years ago? they look similar! hehe.

What I love about family gatherings? There's always good food around. LOL!

so cute!!!!

We hold regular family gatherings here... and usually, it happens every sunday, which is why we call sundays as the family days.... My fave part about it is that during meal time, we often talk about the funny things that we've beern through the week, we laugh so hard when my dad cracks out of this world jokes.... I reall don't know where he got those jokes.... and then, i also love the food! My mom cooks really great food! and then after the eating time, we have karaoke and we sing together... ^_^

Ow i miss my family....

i wanna go home now... =(

Aaaah so cute Kym!! I love this, family reunions are always fun, even with some snooty relatives around :D Which reminds me, I haven't attended one in a while because of work /sadface.

And would you believe I also had that string-with-the-glasses thing when I was nine? Yeah, I think you would believe it :D

Oh Kym, you were cute then and you are cute now. I love that picture. So, are you wearing contacts now? I used to wear glasses too, I started wearing em since I was in the 5th grade. =)

So cute! My siblings and I recreated a picture taken the day I joined the family @ 6 months. I was sitting on my oldest sister's lap in that one, so it wasn't easy (for her) to recreate it. We took a second one with me kneeling in front of her.

You ahe a wonderful family Kym.
