The immediate family indulging in some feasting
Smile, you're on candid camera
Remembering the rest of our extended family missing from this feast
Cheers big ears
Same goes big nose
A cup of 'tea' anyone
Nana, enough with the photos
Perched around the table
O Tzatzikios...the boy who loves tzatziki
And the men party on
Eat, play, work
Sorting out the store cupboard, putting away the summer paraphernalia .
How far can you run further in 5 minutes. Whose gonna win? Well, that's obvious, that one at the back with the longest legs. The game kept them out of mischief for half an hour.
That's a big immediate family! :-)ReplyDelete
Only eleven of us. My sis in law was missing but of course so were all my family from Australia, NZ and England. We often have 25, family and other. Too darn many at one timeDelete
Looks like everyone is having a great timeReplyDelete
The cheers big ears, toast brought a tear to my eye. My friend who would always reply same goes big nose died today four years ago
It was a bitter sweet memory tear xx
May you keep her always in your memory!Delete
It is always the downunders who know and answer this toast!

When we first got this table it seemed gigantic but with 12 or 13 (immediate family) around the darned thing it seems to have shrunk!Delete
A wonderful family feast, despite those snails! How many children do you keep in your store cupboard? My grandchildren would turn it into a den.ReplyDelete
Who did the washing up?
The kids love that store cupboard. It is a space above the bathroom and most greek houses have these little hide aways. They often spend hours up there though it is a furnace in the summer and freezing in the winter and there's quite a bit of 'stuff' up there too.Delete
Who did the washing up? Only a mother and grandmother could ask that question. We do have a small dishwasher but there are still baking dishes and bowls and pots. Poor old Elli, my eldest daughter usally ends up at the sink. They have been trained well over the years but we're hoping the next generation will soon be ready to take over - they already help
