I love to look at old pictures! My mom has MANY photo albums and I enjoy looking at them whenever I get the chance. Most of them have great memories associated with them....a few not so great. Seeing a picture brings back that memory so vividly for me.

A few years ago, my mom gave me oodles of old pictures....some dating back to my great grandparents. My family seems to have always been a picture taking family. As soon as I received them, I started putting them into a scrapbook. I was a scrapbooking maniac at first. As I got to my childhood, I started to lose interest. I guess I got tired of it for a while. So my scrapbook sits, unfinished. I have a box full of pictures just waiting to be carefully put onto pages designed just for that memory.

This week I have made it my mission to get some projects done around the house. One big one was to organize the office. The office just happens to be the room where that box of pictures waits until my scrapbooking enthusiasm returns. This morning, I took the lid off that box and revisited those memories. I decided it was time to scan some of them so I could have them on my laptop. I didn't want to miss out on the good ones I had already put in the album, so I took them out and scanned those as well. (No fears....I put them right back)
Tonight, I thought I'd share some of my favorites with my bloggy readers....not that there are many of you. :)

Here's my dad. Love this picture. He looks so cool. :)
Here's where it all began. My parents wedding...January 1970

Here I am with my mom and dad. I was a baldy for sure! I was about a year old in this picture.

Here I am with my sister, Julie. I can't get over how much Cooper looks like her. She was a baldy too...not for nearly as long as I was though.

Here we are with my mom at Tahquamenon Falls State Park in Michigan. I can't find the original right now to tell you the date.

I saved my favorite of us with my dad for last. I love this pic!

Have a great weekend!
