This is a picture of my grandpa as a young man.
All seven children.
My Great Grandfather, Rodney Brooks. I have been told he was a very warm and wonderful man. Looks like he was having a good time with his kids.

This year was a special treat because it was George's first party! He got to meet lots of family including a cousin, Noah (his Mom went to Bryn Mawr with me and was a year in between Tierney and I) who is just ten days older! It was Stephen's second party and he enjoyed wandering around and checking out his family. Here are some pictures from the party:
The Jack and Edith Brooks family! We were the largest showing at the party. This is not all of us, my Aunt Dede, Wyoming cousins, Aunt Vicky's chlidren, and sister are missing. Poor George was not too happy in this picture and was screaming his head off.
Stephen Sr. and Jr.
How do other people celebrate the holiday season with their family?
