E is for Excitement and F is for Family!

Hey do you like my fancy swimsuit? My sis Mary found a box of old photos in her attic! I was so excited! I love these black and white photos. I must have been three or four and standing in our front yard. My father prided himself in his yard and those matching trees were always perfectly manicured! I love old photos! The excitement in looking over them is so much fun! So since I missed my Alphabe Thursday "E" last week I decided to combine it with my "F" letter and show off a few vintage photos. I will share some today.

My sissy says I was a "Prissy Missy"! Laugh Out Loud! I am sure this might have been the summer my mom was filling my little wading pool and I was dancing around! A wasp flew into the ball of my foot and stung me! Ouch! That hurt! I wish there was a way to preserve these photos. Such memories. Wonderful times, no cares, no worries, just having fun and enjoying being a kid!
Tarrah ( who has the loveliest hair) is standing behind me in this lovely photo! My son-in-law Roger drew my name for the Secret Santa this year. Look what he found, on his own I might add! A Barbie 2013 calendar! Thanks Rog! I also got a beautiful Olay gift set to make me so beautiful and relaxed!
It was a good Christmas.
Rebekah and Jeremy were the deviled egg artists this year! Colton, Tarrah and Jayden are in the background!
Nick coming home from Kansas! Denver International  Airport 2012. He is so tall!
Noelle's yummy scalloped potatoes. She is just like Martha Stewart only sweeter!
Poor little Hannah! This was a tough Christmas for her. She is so sick. Sinus junk! Ugh!
Christmas snacks. Celery stuffed with cheddar cheese, beef Summer sausage and cheese and crackers.
Oh Holy Toledo do I LOVe this photo! I am on the right holding my nephew Tony in the plaid outfit. My grandma who was my BFF is holding my cousins son Frank and next to him is his big sis Luann. She just lost her husband to cancer. So sad. So young. Cousin Rosemarie in blue and white dress. She is a breast cancer survivor and her hubby Aaron is also a cancer survivor. They are so young and so sick. My nephew Charles in brown cords and plaid shirt. My nephew Edward in the blue blazer and oldest Gary in white shirt. We never missed holidays as a phamily. We were always together. I just don't think people make the effort today. I think so many are so self centered and only care for themselves and things. It is a sad world we live in. My grandma's youngest daughter made the trip every single Christmas until she passed away. She and my uncle lived in Baton Rouge. That was a long trip to take each year and they did it anyway!

Now hop over to Ms. Jenny's and join the letter fun!

Oh if we could only jump back in time now and then and get rejuvinated. Love the old photos. It looks like you had a wonderful Christmas. I hope your New Year is just as special.

I read your sweet post, Annie. I love how much you love your family ... and they are home for Christmas. What more could you want? We are still pretty lucky to have kids that make the effort to be with family on the Holiday. As life changes that may change but I hope not.

I hope you have a wonderful rest of the Christmas Season, Annie- Love ya- Diana

Old photos are so much fun. I need to scan some of mine to share sometime. Glad you had a great holiday Anne!
hugs, Linda

I feel for the girl who was sick - it seemed we always had someone in the ER at Christmas! And yes, it takes a lot of work to hold a family together!

Looks like you had a wonderful family celebration. Looking through old photos brings back such fond memories! I'm glad I have some of my family.

Sandra Tyler said...

I realy miss the old black and white photos. Photos in general. I think looking back on them, the real stuff from film, is so more tactile than what my kids will look back on....

Denise said...

Nice post.

Marydon said...

So tickled Nick is coming home Anne What a wonderful Christmas. Love the ornies .. particularly Barbie. Those old pics are the most fun to see ... I can never get my fill even if they aren't ours.

It is a wonderful thing that memories cannot be taken from you. Glad you and family had a nice Christmas. Always enjoy seeing what you have been up to. Stay warm and have a great New Year.

I enjoyed seeing your Christmas celebration and your tree. I really like the blue ice skate ornament! I hope 2013 brings you much joy, love, peace, hope, faith, and health!

Jenny said...

This was an especially fantastic post!

I love seeing your beautiful family! Those scalloped potatoes made me hungry!

Here's wishing you a New Year filled with hope, joy, love and family!

Hugs and A+
