The Newlyweds: Steven and Sara

Munsinger Gardens was a beautiful backdrop for wedding photos of my son, Steven, and his new bride, Sara.  Sara's dad even directed the photography!

Don't they make a lovely couple?

Shutterbug Two!

When our boys were young, they would get frustrated at the length of time it took for me to take family photos. Recently David started doing professional photography in his spare time, so I feel like there is at least one other person who understands now. Shutterbugs unite!

Gramma Buns

See the buns my mom is putting on the platter? The grandkids called these “Gramma Buns” because Mom made them for every holiday meal. The platter didn’t always make it to the table before some were gobbled up!

Remembering Papou and Yaya

This is a tribute to my husband’s parents, affectionately called Grandpa and Grandma in Greek.

Christmas Music through the Years

In our family, music is an important part of celebrating Christmas. Through the years, each of us has sung and/or played various instruments as we remembered Christ’s birth. As you can see from these photos, in both 1968 and 2004 I played violin.

I submitted this to the 12/22 Monday Challenge to use a JIF page and add something to it. I changed the title of the original page from Cowboy to Oh Boy! by adding an H and ! and removing the C and W. I also added some word art, the date, location and names of those in the photo.
