A look at some of the many things going on in our family this year

At Easter I visited David and Laura's new house and played with Francie, Gracie and Joe Shaughnessy Joe Shaughnessy always likes to color Easter eggs.

Cousins Siobhan and Andrew Miller are plotting something, I bet, as they help prepare for Easter at Carol and Bob Miller's

Ryan Miller introduces his date Colleen Rawley to his dad. Daniel Connor is dressed up for Easter. Kathleen brought dozens of cinnamon rolls to Carol's for Sunday.
During Mass, the children listen closely. Andrew Connor "He is risen" is the message of the day.
Francie and Gracie Shaughnessy in their Easter outfits David with Francie and Joe at brunch. Shaughnessy and the girls enjoy Easter brunch.
Such a large family has many traditions-Carol and Bob Miller have evolved theirs--Easter Mass in the basement followed by egg hunt, brunch, pinata breaking. Kathleen and Dick Connor have evolved theirs--Fr. Brian Connor doesn't arrive in KC until Sunday afternoon, so Kathleen usually has family dinner for him, but she and Dick had just returned from a cruise, so Keith and Julie hosted this year.
Julie set the table, prepared the food-- Finally, after tennis-- Everybody come and help yourself!
Cousins Joseph and Daniel Connor are graduating in June. "I won again this year," Brian claims-- "Whatever--" Anne and Kevin Connor.
"Now, listen to this, you guys! I'm the oldest and I say that--" Daniel does the dishes. Mal and Kilmeney pay attention when Keith speaks.
In Indiana, in May, Marie and Brian Thorpe showed off their long-awaited sofa, celebrated Mother's Day, inaugurated their fire pit. Carol and Bob came for Joseph's confirmation.

It snowed in Kansas City after Christmas, when I stayed at Carol and Bob's house for New Years. Mary Kate and Connor were staying with Kathleen. "Why do we always take pictures of food?"
