Thanks to Anugaaq for sending me these. I knew some of them, but not all of them!
I'll spell the words like they sound underneath, so you get the idea! :)
My aana's name is Katak, just like ME!
My mom's name is Jennie (Ahluniq, just like my daughter Kaisa)
This is my dad, his name is Willie.
This is my husband, Dean...the translation mean's "my man!"
This is my mother in law, Emily...Dean's mom!
Yay, its me, Maija, I'm the oldest sister
Young woman...this is my sister, Saima
Youngest Child, who happens to be my youngest sister, Elsa
My cousin from my mother's sister.
This is my cousin Josie, her mom Ruthie is my mom's sister.
Otherwise known as "ILA" (sounds like ILYA)
Cross Cousins - mothers brothers, father's sisters, or another name for the many family members we have!

Siblings: Max, Koy, Kaisa and Maddie
