Nostalgic.....

My mom gave me an old box of pictures a few years ago. They were looked at several times, and yet they still sit in a box. I came across these old pics of my dad and my older sister. He was about 20 years old in the picture and of course my sis, just a baby. My Grandparents are in the bottom photos. They have been gone a long time now, but looking at those pictures makes me realize how much I miss them. My Grandma and Grandpa would listen to Polish music, make you wear slippers at ALL times! Make you drink WARM milk, (cold milk I guess was supposed to give you tummy aches.....) 7-up soda and Push-ups were our treats, and a car ride to church in silence while my Grandmother said her Rosary......just a few of the memories I still have......

My dad too was just a baby in these pics....... a new father to a baby girl. 1966. Man, time sure does fly.........

And in case you were wondering......the paper is by my new favorite company.....Graphic 45! They have the best vintage looking paper. The cat pebble is by Prima.

Have a wonderful day!!! (Or at least try to.......since it IS a Monday!) LOL!
