There were 11 children in my mom's family, eight of them girls. Even though my uncle Walt is 6'4" and skinny and the other 2 brothers were thin, too, the ladies were shorter and somewhat bigger, especially in the posterior area. (All except Aunt Ruby. She was over 6" and built like Twiggy.) I'm not sure who started it but it came to be that whenever they got together, they were called the Butt Sisters. When Mom and some of her sisters went to visit Aunt Neva in California several years ago, my young cousin went around telling all her friends the famous Butt Sisters were coming to visit! I doubt very much they were expecting to see a group of older, middle-aged women. Now that my cousins and I are older, some of us are lucky enough (?!) to be included in this group.
The photos were taken at a family reunion in 2000. The upper photo shows my mom and her sisters. The lower photo is the second generation and one of them is me but exactly which one is MY secret.
