Old Family Photos

One of the great things about Facebook, besides reconnecting with old friends, is photos. My husband's sister recently posted some old family photos (she was testing out her new scanner). I am so grateful because otherwise I wouldn't have them.

I thought I would share some of them here with you all.

Doesn't Tom look angelic in this picture? Maybe it was a sign of things to come.
My mom made my dress. I loved that dress back then. How 70's do we look?
This is Tom's family before his sister was born. He doesn't remember where this was taken.
Tom's Uncle Al, his grandma and mom.
Tom wanted to know if could have unbuttoned another button?
Tom loves this picture of me. Boy I was really young.
Isn't he so cute? This photo makes me smile.
I love this picture of Tom's mom. I still miss her. She passed away at 49.
This is me hamming it up with Tom's Uncle Al.

Those are such great pictures. My mom has so many that I often wish I had at a moment when I'm posting. But then I'd have to find it in her many albums. I have hundreds of pix to get organized - which was to be my winter project - hah! We're heading to spring now!

I am having such a hard struggle with whether or not to join Facebook. I would love to see who comes out of the woodwork, but I can't afford another cyber obsession!

I especially got a bang out of the picture of Tom's uncle, mom and grandma - with the crossed arms!

Especially the one of his mom - is she in a salon? Thanks for posting these!

Those are fun pictures! I'd like to post some one of these days. But that requires digging them out of my closet and they are buried deep. Or, they are at my parents' house in AL.

Great pictures.....man...where does the time go? I'm sure glad this is not all there is. Blessings my friend....and tell Tom happy birthday from me....heck, I had pimples on my face when I was Tom's age!!!!!

Shionge said...

Yes it was totally awesome when I saw these photos at Facebook - what a treasure and a walk down memorable lane too :D

Monica said...

Old photos ARE so much FUN!!! Thanks for sharing these!

I agree with you about that cool aspect of facebook! Just tonight, I found a whole bunch of photos I've never seen before, taken six years ago when we were in China...the one who posted them was with us in China, but we've only seen him once since then and never got to see HIS photos of that trip. He had some really cool ones (not being personally responsible for any baby at the time)! ....seeing those photos just took me back in time--as I am sure you were taken back in time as you first saw your photos on facebook!

What fun family photos!

I'm sorry Tom lost his mother so young.

Marla said...

It's so much fun to look at old pictures! I love to look at them.

Steph said...

Thanks for sharing!

Hope Tom is doing well...

Google reader is a blessing... and then not. On one hand I get to read everything you post. But if I read ALL of the blogs in my reader thinking I will go back and comment in a minute, and then I DON'T, I miss out on the opportunity to tell you how pretty you look :)

Fabulous photos! I know they mean so much to you.

Cheri said...

I love looking at pics from the past. When my bro joined FB, he got a good kick out of scanning older photos...trying to start a scanner war with who could find the funniest pic. All in good fun.

Christina said...

Great pictures from way back when. I'm glad you shared. I can't believe the style back then, these really brought me back to a time much mellower than these.
