Michael's (extensive) family

We've written about Grandma Carmen on this blog before, but can her (amazing) story ever be told too much?  Mother of 16, grandma of 45+, great-grandma to even more, great-great grandma to a fortunate few, this woman has a lot of love to receive and even more to give!  While visiting her house on Saturday a "few" of her descendants dropped by (a few meaning about 25).

Aveah, Great-Grandma Carmen, Grandma (Jadda) Jules.  Grandma's kissing the bottom of Avi's feet which is a Lebanese tradition.  If you ever get the chance, try kissing the bottom of a newborn's foot.  There is nothing more sweet and precious!

Grandma Carmen enjoying Aveah.

Brilee, Aveah's closest cousin (in age) just 2 weeks apart, practicing her opera!  Isn't she cute?!  How come Aveah didn't get some of that lush, long hair?

Two of Jules' seven sisters gawking at Avi's adorable face.  From left to right: Grandma Jules, Great-Auntie Deborah, Great-Auntie Carmella, the illustrious Aveah.

Grandma Carmen's welcomed 5 great-grandchildren into the world in the last 12 months.  Here are 3 of them.  Kabella (4 months), Aveah (6 weeks), Brilee (4 weeks).
