Grandma and Grandpa Craig

My Grandparents on my father's side in 1965
Evon Craig and Muriel Lumsden Craig

An aeriel photo of the farm where they live

The farmhouse where I spent a lot of time as a kid
It didn't look quite like that when I was little

Their wedding photo
My grandmother's brother Harold, Evon, Muriel and Grandpa's sister Ruth

They were married at their home, this is the arch where it took place
This is the first of three places I know of that Grandma and Grandpa lived

The wedding cake

A wedding anniversary, a few years and eleven children later

Early 70's, the whole family
Back row: Jimmy, Leo, Eric (my father), Donna, Jean, Janice, Roy and Doug
Front row: Debbie, Grandpa, Grandma, Marilyn and Karen

There they all are again
The Craig's are great for full family pictures
There are two others I like, one from the late 60's and another from the 80's or 90's.
Unfortunately I couldn't get them out of the albums without damaging the pictures
If anyone has either, I would love a copy

Here they are again in the '80s or '90s, now I just need the one from the '60s Back row: Doug, Marilyn, Jimmy, Donna, Leo, Janice, Roy, Debbie and Eric
Front: Jean, Grandpa, Grandma and Karen

Roy and my dad, Eric at the second house my grandparents had
A guy was travelling around with that pony taking pictures for people

All the Craig boys, so much trouble packed into one photo
Doug, Eric, Roy, Leo and Jimmy

Me and the Craig girls, in 1965

I was the first of many grandchildren to come

The grandchildren, there isn't a picture that I have seen that has all of us together so...
Back row: Rodney, Robbie and Jeff
Front row: Kelly, Todd, Jamie and Adam
Darren and I are absent

The younger grandchildren
Back row: Jenny, Jason, Mindy, Chrystal, Pam
Front row: Kriket, David, Wesley, Christopher and Sarah
Matt, Marsh, Mitch, Woody, Dean, April and Jesse are missing,
I can't find the picture of Jesse I had, I'm sure Janice will correct that

This is Debbie's son Wesley, Rebecca and their little girl Alyssa.
This is the only picture I have of Wes.

Grandma, Darren and Donna in Grandma's kitchen

Roy, Grandma and the little bundle is April

Marilyn's boys as boys, Woody and Dean

Karen's three as boys, Matt, Marshall and Mitch

Mom, Dad and I
I think that covers all the grandchildren
This is also a picture of the first of three Craig-Fisher unions

This picture of Jamie, Adam and Kelly was too cute to pass up.

As was this one of Mindy, Jason, Jenny and Chrystal

Now for the great grandchildren, and there are a bunch, twenty one with three more on the way.
 I don't have pictures for all of them and in a couple of cases I don't know their names either so help me out here and fill in the missing pieces. 
In my defense, there are so many of us and I don't live in the area so.....there are a few I have never met, and a bunch I have only seen as babies.
I apologize in advance for any spelling mistakes on the names or mis-identified children

Adam with Curtis and Katie.
This picture makes me laugh, Adam looks like he's wondering
"What have I done?" LOL
