Family History at our Christmas Get Together

The large Christmas family gathering, which includes the children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren of Paul and Joyce Orshoski, (at least as many of them that are able to attend) is always fun! Mom and Dad are pictured above in a wedding photo from 1951. Later they would have six children and twenty grandchildren, and many great grandchildren. On Christmas Day we got to see how big the nieces and nephews are getting, exchange gifts, and enjoy lots of delicious food. This past Christmas Day we heard about a nephew and future niece-in-law's upcoming wedding. Also a niece and her hubby announced that they are expecting a little one in the summer. Recently another niece and nephew and their spouses announced a new baby in their family line as well! As one who loves family history, I see that soon there will be new branches and limbs on the family tree. My sister Kellie got a "selfie stick" and she had a good time testing it out on the family! Below are just some of the children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren of Paul and Joyce Orshoski. Though are no longer with us, the things they taught us, and traditions they began, continue to stay with us all to this day.
