Round Robin Photo Challenge -- Joy: What Makes My Heart Happy

This time, the Round Robin Photo Challenge was the first based on the suggestions we had made as a group, and the result was a combination of Kathy's suggestion, "Joy," and Wammy's suggestion, "What makes my heart happy." The things that make my heart happiest are my family, and here are pictures of the people in question.

At a Christmas dinner a couple of years ago, my grandsons Michael, then about 8, and Alex, about 6, and son Tony:

At Thanksgiving the year before last, grandson Michael, then nearing 9, and his mother, my daughter-in-law, Kamie:

My daughter-in-law, Kris, and son, J.D.:

My son, Jeff, and daughter-in-law, Steph:

Jeff and Steph's son, my 6-year-old grandson, Noah:

Noah's sister, my granddaughter, Emily, then just over 2:

There are many more things in my life that bring me joy, such as my cats, my house, my business, my sisters and brother, but the above immediate family members bring me the most joy of all.

Thank you for sharing those lovely family pics.I envy you to have such a wonderful family.
My closest next of kin is my brother who lives in Sydney. We are not very close as I've lived 20 some years in Canada while he lived Down Under.

But meet Holly, the joy of my life. Please visit my blog to find out why.

Have a good weekend.
