This morning I was going through a tray of slides and found some family gems. One of my most favorite things in life is to look through family photographs. I have thousands of slides in my family collection that I have personally taken over the years. And yes they are completely filed up to the year 2010. This coming winter “Gosh I hate using that word WINTER” I hope to be able to sit down and file 2011-Present Day. It will definitely be a task at hand but I feel confident that I shall succeed! Lastly my friends what ever you do PLEASE label your photographs. Whether they are slides, prints or digital files please help your children out by labeling.
Below are some of the gems that I have found. I hope to come across more as time permits. So I want to ask you this my friends. Do you enjoy looking through family photographs? What time of year is your favorite to snap family images?
Enjoy the show!

Not 100% sure of the year as the slide was not dated. However we have my aunt Be a “Right” my grandfather “Center” and my uncle Marty. Also my cousins Michael and Stephen. This image had to be taken prior to 1971 because my cousin Chris has yet to be born or seen in this image.
