Thomas Family Reunited!

Many of you know that Liz and I are cousins. If you want to know the story of how we found that out we were related, read here. It's pretty crazy! We had our first William John Thomas and Orinda Ann Karren Family Reunion last Saturday at my parents house. It was so great to finally meet all of my family that I didn't even know existed! Liz and Orinda are the only two second cousins that I know well (probably because I do their hair and your hair dresser knows everything about you right??)
Jack and Maxine (my grandmother) were brother and sister. They were the only children out of five to have their own children. Pretty amazing posterity right?
We had a fun musical program. Michelle Moyer's voice is perfect. 
Uncle Tim put on a show singing...
and even juggling! Multi-talented I tell you!
Aunt Linda (on the left) also sang a beautiful rendition of Somewhere Over The Rainbow. I wish I had some musical talent to share... but that's not one of my gifts!
It was an absolutely beautiful day! Everyone hung out and visited and ate. It was a great time!
My mom is so pretty. :)
The hayride was an absolute hit. I think the kids had fun!
Can't wait to do it again in two years!


  1. We really did have a great reunion! Lots of talent in our family, and LOTS of people! I'm already looking forward to the next reunion!

  2. Where do you get your cute clothes? You always look gorgeous!

  3. Looks like fun! Wow, what a big family:)

  4. That was so much fun! Finally meeting Orinda and Liz were one of the highlights!! :) You were right... Orinda and I like the same things! hehe!
