A step into the past that became our future....

My amazing husband gave me a Mac for Valentines Day and I have to admit that I am very intimidated by it!!!! lol So I decided to try to scan some old pictures and share a little piece of history with you about my family, and I sure hope you like it.....

The little girl in this picture is my Mom and her big brother my Uncle Bob!!
And one day they grew up..... met another brother and sister team , which is my Daddy and my Aunt Mary dated , fell in love and then back in 1962 they were both married 21 days apart!!! My poor Granny and Sugarbabe and Grandpa and Grandma!!!

This is my Mom and Daddys wedding portrait on July 21, 1962
This is my Granny, with her only daughter...........Oh how I loved her.....
My Momma and Daddys hands....
This is my Sugarbabe with "empty pockets"!!!!!
Oh how perfect she is to me.....My Momma, I just wish she knew I was honoring her like this.....
This picture was taken on June 30, 1962, My Aunt Mary and Uncle Bobs wedding portrait...
Aunt Mary and Uncle Bob...1962


There is a whole lot more family where this comes from, trust me ALOT, but for this part there have been 5 children, my sisters, Kim, Kerry, my cousins Tracy, and Bubba, and myself, our spouses, our kids, our kids spouses, grandkids etc etc etc .....now there is 33 of us just between these two couples that started all this in 1962!!!

As for my sisters and two cousins, we shared 4 grandparents, and countless memories of our childhood and we are still making memories. We were so blessed to have the grandparents we had, they were AWESOME and we all loved them so so much!! They are all missed more than they could ever have known!!! Every generation has always had kids in litters and we have never "wanted "for anyone to play with, there was always your "age" group of cousins...lol We all live right around here by each other and that is the way I like it!!!!

I just wanted to share this with all of you, now that I know how to do it, I plan on posting some baby pictures of my sisters and I soon.

Kristy, I enjoyed this post SO much!! I was born in 1962 and looking at these pics reminds me of my parents who are no longer here. My mother had a very similar wedding dress and my dad wore the same tux. I love those old churches. How wonderful that your family has always been blessed with children and one another. I can't wait to see more!

I hope your mom is doing well!

Love and Blessings,
Robin

I love it! One day I will get my moms portraits of their wedding. I love looking back in time like this. Both had beautiful Weddings.

Mary Jo said...

Oh wow--these were great! It really took me back in time; My parents had similar wedding attire; all of their groomsmen wore the same type of white coat. I love the simplicity of life back then. Thanks for sharing.
