Special Exposure/Wordless Wednesday

The sudden passing of my father 2 weeks ago prompted us to go through some old photos to mount on a poster board to display at his visitation and funeral service. Today I decided to share an old photo of myself, my sister Andrea and my brother Eric. The year ~ probably about 1982. I would have been 12, my sister 6, and my brother 4. When we were young, our parents would let us decorate for New Year's Eve and do other special things to celebrate. These are some of the best memories I have. Don't you dig the hats?

  1. I am digging the hats Rachelle!! I just love old family photos, so much fun :-)

    I can really see in this photo how much your two girls resemble you.

  2. Wow! Old photos are so much fun. I'm sure that brings back so many great memories!! It looks like you had a blast!

    I should take a lesson from this and decorate for little celebrations more often!
