Then and Now

I thought I would share family photos with you today. I am in a sentimental mood (no surprise really) and I thought you might like to see what my family looks like. Then and now. In the first photo, I believe I was around 7 years old. Which puts it in 1983. My mom made all of our shirts (and my skirt!). In the second photo, the entire Anderson clan (7 children, 14 grandchildren, and 4 great-grandchildren plus all associated spouses) gathered for a surprise 80th birthday party for my Grandma. She's the lovely lady in the rather overly large wicker chair. That was in 2001.

Nice photos! That's awesome that your mom sewed the clothes in the first picture. (And I wish I had a pattern for the shirt your mom's wearing in that photo.)

Undeniably good lookin' family you got there Tracy.

Thanks for sharing the photos.

I also love that your dad and your brother are wearing the same shirt in the first one.

Apparently the crafty gene got passed down to you. That's awesome! My mom used to sew us clothes when we were little, too.

Great family!

What a cute little sprout you were (and) are! I love kid pics! One of these days I'll scan and post my 4th grade picture. Hope you are doing well. I am thinking about you and your family and praying for your guys too. Love, L.

It just now dawned on me that your mom wore a dress to your grandmas bday party! I have never seen her in a dress before. She looks so pretty in that picture with your dad holding her waist. I love your family.
