Some old Shutterfly pictures came up in my email the other day so I thought it might be fun to look back in time.

Kendall was our first grandchild and oh my goodness, we must have taken her picture every time we saw her! I have more photos of her than all the other grands together!

One of my favorites...she was playing the piano and singing.  She does have a nice voice!!

In front of the Christmas tree on Brandywine Drive...wearing a Christmas shirt we made with her handprint. Nana was more ambitious back then!

Dancing with Uncle Ben at Uncle Charles wedding.

With her new brother...

With her GiGi...precious memories.

Cherish the moment Friends...precious memories now.

Arlene, I agree 100%, Cherish the memories you are making as you are living them. You have been blessed with beautiful grandchildren. ( I was the first grandchild in my family and there are more photos of me too,I think that happens in every family)

She is a so adorable and growing up so fast. Isn't it always that way, we take tons of pictures of the first born. I once had a pastor do such a great message where he tied that thought in with our faith walk. Anyway, she is growing up fast and will most likely reach that age real soon where she is too busy for as many visits. Remember it passes.
I always wondered when you guys decided to move to a townhouse. You need to share that one day!

Visits With Mary said...

Precious memories! I love looking at pics of my grands when they were little. They're all grown up and now we're making memories with the great grands!!

You are so right! One of Louis Dean’s favorite quotes is Laura Ingalls Wilder saying, “Now is now, Pa. it can never be a long time ago.”
But it can and it is.

She is such a precious little girl and it would be hard to resist not taking lots of photos of your first grandchild. Michael was the first grandchild on my side of the family and the only grandchild on George's side of the family.

I love photos from way back. I especially love all of the old black and white photos at holidays when we were kids. RJ
