52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks: FAMILY PHOTO, Birthday!

Amy Johnson Crow challenges us to remember our ancestors and their families through this task: 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks. I completed ’52 Ancestors’ in 2014 & here I go again. This post is in response to that challenge. The topic for this week is FAMILY PHOTO.


52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks: FAMILY PHOTO


Happy Birthday!

FAMILY PHOTO!

23 February is my mother in law's birthday. This year her family is flying in from several states to Oklahoma to see Ann & celebrate her 95th birthday. This photo came from her 90th birthday celebration in Florida. That birthday included mini golf, swimming, big meals & a crystal tierra for the birthday lady. I gave her a hand sewn quilt which everyone in the family had signed.

 In 2019 the family photo will include: her two children & spouses, her five grandchildren & spouses, and four adorable great grandsons, ages 2 months to 4 years old.  

It has been great to be a part of the Pasquale family. We've had many fun times together since I met them in 1974: enjoying big Italian meals, playing RISK, celebrating holidays & special days,... And the fun times continue!
