Saturday Snapshots is hosted by Melinda at West Metro Mommy Reads. Go to her blog, read the few rules and shares some photos from your life.
My Dad was a amateur photographer. In those days it was mostly black and white film. He built a small darkroom under the stair in our basement and sometimes let us help. It was like magic.
This photo was made into a family Christmas card. I have one sister and two brothers. My youngest brother was born in January 1955 and I think he looks about 2 here. So I think this is Christmas 1956. We all have names that start with "J", Judy, Jane, Judd and Jeff, so this card said Merry Christmas from Lorraine, Tommy and the 4 Jays. My mom borrowed the capes from the children's choir at church and I remember my mom standing on a chair so we would all look up at her.
I would be fun to get a similar picture now, but the boys are taller so they would have to be in the back or sitting on chairs in the front. I will have to approach my siblings to see if they are up for recreating this one.
This is the closest I have, it was taken at our mom's funeral in July of 2012. Judd, Judy, Jane and Jeff.
Until next time
