The weeding... (2nd of 2 posts 2night)

I'm so cynical... of course, it's wedding, not weeding! My oldest nephew (age 23) got married to a nice young lady he met in Canada... that's why my mom and dad and i trekked to the beautiful city of Toronto to be a part of the festivities. Below are photos from the wedding (and some from before the wedding) of my sister Sheryl and her family (rabbi husband and their 10 children) as well as my mom and my dad and me! It was great to see all of the little ones... you can see Chaya, who was here a month ago, with the rest of her four sisters and five brothers. I don't know how my sis has done it... all the kids are truly smart, funny and nice! Her youngest is 2 1/2 years old. I love the last photo. I hadn't seen this London-living sister of mine in about 3 years.

The first to comment again!! I'm up late. I had my first Saturday night shift at the liquor store and needed to unwind. It was pretty busy, but I'm really liking it.
What wonderful pictures! Beautiful bride and lovely looking children. They seem so happy and look really healthy. Kudos to your sister for sure. 10 kids?! I can barely manage a husband and a dog. Geez!
Thanks for sharing those Kleo. We wish your nephew and his new wife many years of happiness.

What a happy looking family! Carrie is right, 10 is a lot of kids. It must have been so special to see everyone.

Sounds like you had a great time visiting with your family and hanging out with Carrie.

You sure travel a lot Kleo. Toronto is one of my favorite cities though.

What a lovely pic of your nephew and his new bride. Look at those smiles...they're a mile wide :) They look so nice together.

Enjoyed seeing all the family pics. Wow, your sister has 10 children. I'm with you, I don't know how she does it. It's just Rob and I and I think that's just enough to manage. Can't imagine having that big of a family!!!!

My Great Aunt (who is really more like my Aunt because she's actually younger than my dad) has 10 children and I think they are one of the best behaved and most organized families I know. It's amazing - when you have that many - how you must really pull it all together.

Your sister's family is very beautiful and happy looking. So glad you got to see them all on this joyous occasion.

What great photos--I love how weddings bring everyone together. The bride looks beautiful of course (as do you, Kleo), and I love all the sshirring on the gown.

It's so nice to see your family, Kleo!! Looks like a fun day you had, and must have been really great to reunite with everyone and see all the kids again! :) The bride and groom look incredibly happy.

You look gorgeous, as always! Just seeing your picture makes me happy. I always look at your photos as if I know you so well! I feel like I do anyhow. ;) Next trip to Canada should be an organized "blogger" get together. ;)

Thanks for sharing you photos!! :)

10 kids, wow, that is such a dream for me. i would love it! unfortunately hubby only wants 3, so our next one will most likely be our last (barring any "happy surprises").
