I have some random pictures in iPhotos so I decided to just share them all.

A friend of mine shared this on Facebook and it really made me laugh out loud. That is Snow in the Deep South in one painting.

Miss Audrey sporting a side pony tail, she just might bring them back into fashion.

My sister was sharing some old pictures last week and here is one of me and Amelia, Christmas 1981. I think Amelia had just woken from a nap.  And I look like I need one.:)

Marvin surprised me with this beautiful blown glass ornament made here in Alabama, Fort Payne to be precise.

Amelia shared this group of photos of Hudson on his birthday! He is a handsome fella.

And here is Mr Modest...being congratulated by his coach after scoring 10 points in a recent basketball game.

Here is Baby Ben...six months old and sporting his two new teeth.  We lived in Hull, Georgia and this photo was made in our back yard while out for a walk....remember umbrella strollers? They had just come into vogue and were so convenient compared to the old strollers.

The Brothers Grimm out for a ride in Elliott's birthday gift. Katy said Baylor was tentative at first but was soon laughing and clapping his hands as they rode around the yard. For a four year old, Elliott can really wheel his car around. Marvin suggested that Katy hide her car keys!!

Arlene, what fabulous pictures you shared! I laughed out loud at your Snow in the Deep South picture. Only around here, it is bread, milk and eggs. But I think TP makes more sense. Enjoy your weekend!

I love ALL of the pictures. That is great that Baylor can enjoy the ride with Elliot. Oh those younger days with dark hair.

I loved all your pictures. The ornament is stunning. Snow in the Deep South is hilarious but SO true!! My Mother was dead serious about stocking up on bread and milk and TP!

Lovely pictures! I especially like the blown glass ornament, it's beautiful! Have a blessed Christmas -- God bless you all!

Love all the family photos ... they are so enjoyable to see. The ornament is gorgeous and such a thoughtful gift. Fort Payne, Alabama isn't that where the country group Alabama is from? In Florida there is NO snow ever! We call the sand our snow. Have a great weekend. RJ

Chuckling over hiding the car keys...probably a good idea! I really enjoyed seeing these photos!! You DO look ready for a nap, by the way! Haha!

Mari said...

The Deep South picture is hilarious - and true for the North as well.
I enjoyed the rest of them too. I remember umbrella strollers. I had one - they really were handy.

I love old photos and the odd and end ones we tend to collect. The one of 'Snow in the South' was great! That's the first time I've seen it!
