When We Were Young

I went through some of my old pictures and decided to share some of them. I love looking at pictures and it seems, by looking at our family's blogs, that you all do to. So have fun.

Oh how I wish I was that skinny now. The glasses leave some to be desired, though. I must have been about 21 or 22 here.

This is a blast from the past. Mom wearing that kerchief. Is it just me or does it almost look like Mom is holding Connor?

This picture is one of my favorites. This is the way I want to remember Aunt Lena. Here she is holding Abe and Jake shortly after they were born.

I saved the best one for last. This one is a really old one. You can't really tell unless you enlarge it, but the calendar on the wall has a date of Feb. 1958. I was only one year, 9 months old. As you can see I had a real problem looking straight ahead. My focus point was quite skewed and Dad is on the right pointing, trying to get me to look at the camera. I am looking at the camera. What he should have done is have someone on the right distract me and I would have looked at them and it would have looked like I was looking at the camera. Anyway, from top left to right we are Helen Mansuay, me, Reg Andres, brother Henry. Bottom row is brother John, Kathy Kalyn (sp), Dave Braun (Hawk), Ron Andres, and Ken Andres. I don't know where brother Peter was when this picture was taken.

Well, that's it for today. I have a few more, but I will save those for another post. Keep you in suspense, so to speak.

Man, I see pictures of you when you were younger... and I can't believe how much Jack looks like you. Seriously. And I love the picture of Grandma. She's so pretty. That last picture is great. I love how EVERYONE is facing the camera but you. Sweeet. I love you Auntie Margaret.

I get to be the first one commenting. Sweet.

Oh the good old days....before I was born.
I guess I was around when most of those were taken, just not there. I also think that it looks like mom is holding Connor. I would have never thought it.
Love these old pictures.

love the pictures. I wasn't even born in that last one. Art would have been a baby then. Wow.
The picture of Aunt Lena is great. I miss her.

Oh yeah. Old pictures rock. I would swear that Mom is holding Connor.

And looking at the last picture, even then I can tell that was "Hawk."
