Each of us got a good start on our books. I'll share them when we get them all finished..but here are a few peeks at some of the pages. The one above is from Jan's book.
The one below is from mine.
The first photo is my mom on the porch of our old house. We moved from there when I was in first grade. (Remember ..there were 6 other kiddos before me.) lol
The second photo of the kids with the fish, are .. one of my sisters, two of my brothers, and two cousins.
The girl looking so unhappy on the left is my sister Jan , who was here today. We laughed about how crabby she looked. lol ( I now understand ..there was some question as to who really caught the big fish). lol
I'm still working on the page below..but it's my dad and I when I was a wee one. We were in the Black Hills of SD... I think a Dinosaur Park. My Aunt and Uncle had a cabin in the Black Hills so we went there , most every summer.
We filled our books with all kinds of fabric, papers, trims , and embellishments.
We had the table full of vintage finds and treasures for our books.
Below is a page from Jans book. The photo is of me when I was a babe.
Below is another page from Jans book. The photo is of her with my two brothers Ray and Dan. I think it was taken at my Grandparents farm.
We both have lots more photos to add to our books, but all of our pages are sewn and ready.. so I think we have them finished before long. I'll share then.
As you can see by the table ...... (and the fact that it's getting dark out when I took this photo)... we had a great time.
The only thing that could have made the day any better .. would have been... if all my sisters could have been here together. I miss my sisters who are out of state .. especially on days like today.
btw... Taylors Friday Cupcake Challenge is taking a break for the next 3 weeks , while Miss Taylor and her Hubby get moved.
I'm pretty excited because "Tilly and the Wall" my nieces band is playing in Omaha tonight .. and we're going. I LOVE seeing them perform.. it's always a great time!
HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE!!!
