A few more of my photo treasures that I have found...

On my last post, I showed one of my favorite photos of my mom and that I would be putting up a few more of her (there's many more, but here's a few)...

...in the Philippines, about 23yrs old.
(such a cute figure!)


...in the Philippines, love the up-do & her dress.


...in Wisconsin (love my mom & dad!)



... on one of our vacations in Northern Wisconsin. (we had to really convince my dad to take this old-timey style photo... thank goodness, we didnt have to sit for hours like they had to do in way back when.)
top row: my brother, Leo; my hubby, Mr. B; me
second row: my sister, Megan; dad, mom, our daughter, theluckiestmrs.
third row: our daughter, littleMiss; our son, heartbreaker
*taken in 1992*



How great it is to have pictures to remember by and even through a picture, we can learn a little about the person. My mom was always so giving! And she always made sure everyone was taken care of and felt at home. She had so much energy and was always doing something...quilting, crafting, volunteering, cooking, baking, gardening, and on and on and on! (I would love to have half the energy she had :o)

Blessings & Aloha!

I LOVE your photos! What a beautiful mom. I enjoy posting old photos too. Did you know about Wednesday's Walk down Memory Lane? It's a meme hosted by Lynnette of Dancing Barefoot on Weathered Ground. You would love it! I think I have a link on Heart Choices or just check any post on Wednesday. It would be perfect for you.

What beautiful photos of your family! I came over from your post on my blog and have enjoyed reading through your posts. You have such a beautiful family!

You asked me about Memes, and here is an explanation I gave to another blogging friend earlier. I hope this makes sense. LOL!

A Meme or MeME as some people write it is a theme that goes around the internet... like the theme of "naming things you love." People voluntarily add to the theme with their contributions. It is really spelled Meme, but some people spell it MeMe because in many cases it involves sharing something about yourself. In the Meme today, I was telling about the blues I love. Blue Monday could also be considered a Meme.

Again, you have a lovely blog. I see that your husband is an Army Aviator. My cousin was in the Air Force, and his son is a Hurricane Hunter. Love those fly boys!

XO,

Sheila :-)
