How cool, I love these old pictures. Regardless if they are Black and White or color doesn't make any difference. Thanks for sharing them.

LOL, yes we kept pretty busy. I must say for having only one ovary that little baby was STRONG. So I had it put out of commission after the fifth baby and I was almost 37. Enough is enough. I remember it was quite a shock for Angela who was 17 at the time to think her Mother was pregnant. And Becky who had been the baby for 11 years wasn't too happy. But it all worked out ok.

I actually remember being excited about it...but then sometime a few years later in my life I thought I would never probably want to have any kids of my own. Weird.....then I thought I wanted some....but then thought I would probably never have any as time was tick tocking away....then I had Noah!

I enjoyed seeing your parents' young family. You all were really cute kids! I have four children (no late arrivals), and at one time the three youngest were all under three years of age! Sure kept life interesting.

Looks like happy times!

Your mom (pic #2) looks like a movie star. I mean it very seriously! :)

Melinda said...

yes I think so too. I have a lot of other photos of her....and there are so many where both she and dad even looked like movie stars. I have told them the same thing in person
