This grandparent wall is my favorite photo gallery in my home. Every time I walk by it I smile and think of the life my grandparents have lived. I am also reminded how richly blessed I was/am to learn and be loved by them for so many years.
|My Grandparents when they were kids!!!|
I count every day a blessing to still have my Opa around.
He is the world's greatest Opa and YES, he reads my blog - Hi Opa :-)

Oh and just to be nostalgic here I am with my siblings being read to by my Oma (grandma). I'm the chubby one on her lap :-) And yes my dad looks like he's 17.....I guess they started out young - ha!
I plan to keep adding to that wall (once I collect some more rustic frames) for my husbands side of the family. There aren't words to describe how much all of these pictures mean!!
My husband's grandparents on his dad's side. I'm not quite sure what to think of that ruffle collar ;-)
Honestly, don't you love that swimsuit!
My husband's grandma on his mom's side. She looks a lot like Judy Garland to me :-)
I'd love this post to be an encouragement to all of you to collect some photos so that you can make a photo gallery too. :-) Don't forget to take some of those photos and scan them into the computer so you have them saved on a hard file!
And.........since we're talking about grandparents and preserving memories, my good friend wrote the BEST blog post about a notebook she made for her grandma to fill out. It's such a wonderful idea. I hope you guys click on over there and read what she did.....just a warning.....you may get a little teary eyed (in a good way!!!)
