Way Back When-esday

Cheryl over at Twinfatuation hosts this one. Go on over to see who else is playing – and join in too!

In honor of what would have been my step-father’s 81st birthday tomorrow (right, 81?), I’m posting a way back from Christmas of 2004. This picture makes me happy AND sad as 3 out of 4 of the people in it are no longer with us.

  1. I enjoy reading your blog. I have the same issue with older pics when more people than not are no longer here. Memories are wonderful though.

  2. What a lovely photo. They all look so happy together.
    I think it’s just wonderful that you have pics like this, esp knowing that some are no longer with you.

    Happy WBW!

    ps Sorry I haven’t been around much lately… it’s taken me a bit to get back to “normal”.

  3. What a touching picture. I’m so glad to have found your blog through Twinfatuation.
    Will definitely be stalking you now 🙂

  4. Aww, love the picture – what smiling faces! Like Brianne – I am glad I found you & will be following you now!

  5. Oh Nancy, the joy is just pouring from each of those faces…what an image to treasure.

    Happy Way Back When-esday, and thanks for playing along!

  6. Thanks for remembering. Yes, 81. The picture and your comments give me tears — and yes, I know, that’s not hard to do. Hugs for all of you.

  7. Such lovely memories! Sad to think they are gone, but great to know that they had good lives filled with family love and laughter.

  8. I don’t even know these people and it makes me smile.
