My Family

by Mama Bear

Today over at Kelly's Korner its Show Us Your Family day!

I love my family!  It all started out with my parents and big brother.  We were a pretty normal suburban family.  My parents grew up in this small town, which had grown a bit by the time my brother had arrived.  It was not uncommon to run into an old or current friend or distant cousin as we were out.
  I need to work on scanning some more of my old photos!  Here are some OLD pictures of me with parents, grandparents, great aunt and my brother

We had a lot of fun taking summer trips, and many summers visited my grandparents who lived about an hour from the beach.  I was blessed to grow up in a Christian, loving family led by parents who truly led by example. My dad worked for the local water dept all of my life (still does) and is a mr. fix-it.  My mom cooked homemade meals every night, teaches SS at church, and plays the piano sometimes at church. (she was the church pianist when I was in the womb)  My older brother enjoyed playing sports growing up and I watched him play a gazillion basketball games.  He and my dad were the sound Guys at church and eventually he got a degree in sound engineering. He got married this past October!!

Here we are today, plus some new members.
