My Family

Hi my name is Joe and I want to tell you about my family. My family is very big. I have 4 grandparents because both my father’s and my mother’s parents are alive. My father has two brothers and two sisters, so I have two uncles and two aunts on my father’s side of the family. My mother has three siblings, two brothers and only one sister. Her brothers are my uncles, and her sister is my aunt too. I have a sister. She is 12 years old. Her name is Lily. Lily and I have 8 uncles and 7 aunts in all. She is the niece, and I am the nephew. My uncles and aunts have children too. They are my cousins. We have 5 cousins on my father’s side of the family, and we have 8 cousins on my mother’s side of the family. As you can see, we are a big family. We have family gatherings in our house twice a year. Everybody comes to these gatherings, so our house is always full on these occasions.
