Big Barb (aka Barbara Millicent Roberts)

bigbarbBig Barbie was a Christmas gift to our 1-1/2 year old great niece from her grandmother, my beloved sister-in-law and friend TBG. Our cute little niece seemed (at least tonight) most interested in using Big Barbie’s hairbrush.

I had been hanging out on the couch with a couple of nephews and then the GG sat down and then I needed to use the Water Closet or whatever, so I got up and replaced myself with Big Barbie (with permission from Big Barbie’s owner’s mom). It didn’t seem like the GG noticed, even though I took this photoooo. So here he is with his new friend Big Barbie.

As I have said before, big Catholic families seem to be one of my lots in life. I married into one (10 siblings, eight are still living) and they are the warmest, most welcoming people in the world. Still, it took me something like 10 years to be comfortable with my in-laws in a large group situation. Not so much any more. We are just family but we are a wonderful family and today’s party was one helluva bunch of work for our hostess, the Lady of Linden, but it was a spectacular party.

It is really late and I hope I don’t get one of those damn second winds that makes it hard to go to sleep.

G’night and love y’all,
Kayak Woman

P. S. No blasted ice storm this year, thank you very much!

    Glad for no ice storm and that’s a LARGE group. My grandfather was one of 10 children but since then we’ve mostly been families of 2-5. 🙂

    Children, I should have specified.
