Partners in Crime
So recently I have been spending my time rearranging and redecorating my house (I use redecorating loosely because I am doing it in the most affordable way possible - moving art from one room to another, repainting canvases, putting different photos in frames, etc...). Part of this process included asking my mom to send me old family photos - and when I say old, I mean old - I'm talking ancestors, baby. I decided it would be great to combine current family photos with old family photos all in black and white in my living room. I also went to the McKeon's and got some photos of Mark's family and scanned them in. And I am loving all the family mixed together.
Wedding photos of my parents, us, and Mark's parents

My mom also sent me this photo of myself at age 6, which looks quite a bit like my niece Sophia (now age 6)
My Grandma Wade with her twins and my sister Laura with her twins
My mom as a toddler (with her twin brother Bill) and my niece Lily
My mom in college and my sister Laura
I think that was my favorite part about this whole experience - finding how much our old family looks like our new family...
