My Family (15 Day Blogger)

Day 8 of 15: Get to Know the Blogger - "Tell us a bit about your family"

Holy smokes where do I begin? Okay how about some numbers first?

1 single mom.
2 sisters but only one biological.
2 uncles.
4 aunts.
4 grandparents + 1 great grandparent (all gone).
2 nephews + 2 nieces (non given birth by my sisters).
19 cousins (not including their spouses).
30 cousins if you count spouses (because some have been in the family longer than I have).
18 2nd cousins + 3 3rd cousins.

Me, Baby Sister and Mom
My mother's side of the family is German, English, Welsh, Scottish, Polish and a few other little things here and there.

The adults are my great-grandparents Elmer and Marie and the children are my mother and my uncle Ron.
This is also the 100% German great-grandmother who lived to be 98 years old and has been quoted to say,
"My mouth is so dry I couldn't spit if my pussy was on fire!"
My father's side of the family is Italian. All four of my great-grandparents came to America on the same boat from the same small mid-eastern Italian village. I'm third generation born but don't speak/understand Italian sadly.

Great-great grandparents
Great-grandparents. This grandmother lived with my
father's family as they was growing up.

My grandparents (Chic & Angie) are on the far right.
This is a picture of them and their best friends on my grandparent's
wedding day.
Now just for some fun pictures to show off some of my wacky loveable family members.
