  1. Your family reminds me a lot of mine. My grandparents were apparently very close to their cousins, judging by all the photos. My descendants will think I didn't like my cousins!

    1. Sounds very familiar Wendy! Yes, in the past family was close. Thanks to Facebook, I have reconnected with many of my cousins, but my children are not close (by distance or emotion) to their cousins.

  2. I always enjoy looking at your photos, Sharon!

  3. I love everything about the first photo... the clothes the kids are wearing, they included the family dog, the look on the baby's face, the girl seems to be looking at someone making you think someone is standing beside the photographer giving them instruction. It is so interesting to me. Thanks for sharing - looking forward to E

    1. Well done on spotting the dog! I didn't see it the first time that I looked at it!
      Lil does not look impressed!

  4. Were all of these photos labelled when you received them? So many old family photos I've seen have no indication who is in it.

    1. My Grandmothers were labelled very well (the top and bottom photo) but many of my grandfathers family photos (middle) were not adequately labelled.
