#1,629 Family Reunion Part 2, 2014.

The second half of family reunion was today, which means weird pictures of Ben and his brothers.

That’s my niece, Harper, and sister-in-law, Allison. Can you believe Harper is only 2 years old?! Allison is 6 feet tall and Tom is 6’7″, so Harper is already growing like a weed!

Uncle Chris and Ben:

So Jesse is going to Mississippi State in August. I thought we taught him better.

 Ben, his oldest brother, Sam, their daddy, Jesse and our nephew Jared (Sam’s son).

Beard brudders:

 Me and Jookie:

See my sister-in-law Lyn there with the gorgeous red mermaid hair? I’d really love if y’all could say a prayer for her. She’s not had a bite of solid food since September, when she was diagnosed with gastroparesis—a rare condition where your stomach becomes permanently paralyzed and stops working. She’s been living on broth, water, coffee and Ensure since then, but lately she’s not able to handle more than just the water and coffee without getting really sick. There isn’t a cure, but she’s undergoing some tests and and an upcoming experimental surgery in a few weeks that could improve her quality of life. There’s a 60% chance it will help her, so please please please—say a prayer for her. She’s growing weaker every day and has a family to care for, besides being a teacher, too.
