My mom, Juliana and I went to visit my Grandma for her birthday today. She knew that my mom was coming, but it was a last minute decision for Juliana and I to go – so she had a fun birthday surprise when we showed up at her house. My Grandma is pretty awesome – she does all of that important grandma stuff like giving lots of hugs and kisses and she bakes the best cookies. She has 4 children, 17 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren. I was her first grandchild and Juliana is named for her.
I started collecting and scanning old pictures from her house a few years ago. They are saved in my “eventual family history project folder” and are untouched at this point. I thought this would be a good time to post a few of my favorites.
Four generations – My Great-Grandmother, Grandma Julie, my Mom and me (1972). Grandma Julie with several of her Grandchildren in 1978 – I am in the pink checked dress and the cheeser smile.
And some more recent pictures including a new 4 generation photo with Juliana.
