TBT- blended

I have this photo in a frame in my office and when people come in and see my family they never think we're a blended family. They always just think Donald and I are the parents of these three kids.  And we are the parents of these three kids, but we successfully co-parented with some other parents to get them raised. 

This photo was taken around Christmas of 2002 the year we became a blended family. Abigail was 14, Cian was 13 and Colin was 10.

I miss the laughter, fun and even squabbling that happened when our kids were teens. Holidays were the best. Christmas brought wrapping paper all over the house and Thanksgiving had lots of food with every ones favorite dishes.

We became "family" that year and we're still family.  We need to get them all home for another family photo.

I can relate to missing the laughter when the kids were teens.  I miss those years too.
