The tenth picture . . .

I was tagged by Cathy at Tales of the TCKK Family I am supposed to post the 10th picture in the 1st folder in my picture files. There wasn't 10 pictures so I posted the 9th.

This is a picture of my mother (2nd from the left) and her friends on a toboggan. This was before she married my father. She lived in Southern California and they went to mountains to "play".

I couldn't resist adding a couple more of her on that day. In the next picture, her friend is trying to put a snowball down her back

In this next picture, mom is on the right. She was so fun. We had so many laughs and fun times together. I miss her and dad. (I don't have any pictures of dad on my computer.)

I'm in the process (it's turning into a loooooog one) of working on some genealogy scrapbooks. I want to record what I remember and what I've learned through research to put in these scrapbooks so that my grandchildren will know about their ancestors. If I don't, I fear that many facts and stories will be lost forever. It may seem a little strange to say this, but preserving their memories in these books feels like a way of loving them. And . . . I do love them!

Your vintage photos of your Mother are great! I think it's so good to preserve & pass along family history for the next generation.

These are such fun photos. Looks like more fun back in those simpler times, doesn't it?

Those are the neatest pictures!
Your mom is beautiful!
I think it's great that you're taking time to make the scrap books for your family.
Thanks for sharing.
