Jessica and I have been thinking a lot about family and connections through the generations. There are too many missing links on all sides of our family trees. That is the way with absent parents and/or adoptions. I know that I wish I would have been more interested in the family tree back when I was younger and so many more of the relatives were alive. Too little, too late.
One thing that I was over-the-moon thrilled about though... my grandma relinquished some of her old photo albums. She was going to get rid of them (to a thrift store, like she did with a bunch of others [like a stab in the eye with an ice pick]), but since I wanted them, she gave some of them to me. Yay.
Here are a couple of my treasures that I scanned.
|My grandma, mom and uncle (and Joseph the cat) in December of 69|
|My grandpa in 1939|
|My grandma in 1939|
|Grandma in 1938|
|Grandpa and Grandma (dating) July 6, 1938|
|Grandpa's cousin, Rosie 7/6/38|
And here is a page I created using one of the pictures. The kit is so fitting. It is Sissy Sparrows' Room 19: Project 5. All about relics and vintage goodness (although it is totally versatile and can be used for anything).
