Old Family Treasures

When my grandma passed away about three years ago, my aunt took all of their family photos and scanned them for the kids. At Christmas I was able to see them all for the first time. She must have spent hours and hours scanning them all in! I'm grateful for her hard work. Most of them were pictures that their kids and grand kids gave them, but they had some of their own in there too. There were some real gems I am happy to now have! I will share with you my favorites of my family.

1940's Dennis and Marion (Dad and Grandma)


1942 Pretty Marion (my grandma)


1948 Denny 3 yrs. (My dad)

1955 Grandpa Grider (the AVID fisherman) and my dad


1982 (I'm the baby. I love this photo.)

1992 Can't beat those freaking awesome glasses.

I love old family photos! That is so awesome that you've got those now. That baby one of you looks just like Dean! And yes, I would have to agree with you- those glasses are freaking awesome!

How neat. I'd love to get my hands on a collection like that.

And yes, those glasses are awesome. My mom had sunglasses like that. Still does, in fact. She likes them better than the sleeker, smaller ones.

I love old family photos. Since all my grandparents have passed away we've found some great ones of them as babies, kids, and young adults. It's great to see who and where you came from.

I loved those photos. Aaron and I downloaded all of them and there were some that I had NEVER seen. Do you know who "Ricky" is? He seemed to be in a lot of the photo's but I can't remember the name.
