Sepia Saturday; Are they family?

Unfortunately there is no date nor names on the back of this photograph.
I am pretty sure the old lady on the right is my grandmother. In the middle beside her is my father. I haven't got a clue who the others are. It looks like a family photo does it not?
I have tried to figure it out but it does not add up with the ages of the people, unless I am guessing the wrong ages.
My dad was born 1903.
My grandmother was born 1869.

Or could this be my great grandmother born 1841. My grandmother had four children. Could it be her holding her last baby born 1908 ?
The pretty girl standing could be her eldest daughter born 1898.
The little boy with the sailor suit could be my father, 6 years old and his younger brother 4 years old.
The picture could have been taken in summer 1909, the last baby girl on the arm of her mother was born in June 1908.

I rather think the other people might be the children from a sister or brother of my grandmother,perhaps! I probably will never find out.

Chocolate chip c(h)ookies...

Last week Fabrizia could not attend school as she had the German Measels. She spend a couple of days with me. We decided to bake cookies, old favourites which we called Chocolate chip chookies.

Try them and have fun with your grand children.
