21 years ago....


...obviously, he wasnt ready for the shot, but mom is...

This is the main reason why I wanted to have a scanner...Most of our old photos had turned yellow, and are just hidden somewhere. We had hundreds of photos when the kids were babies up to the time they were in elementary school. Most of it needed to be cropped and edited to be appreciated.
I hope I can accomplish this difficult task, I know my sons will love to have this, especially later on to share with their own family ;)

For now, here's a small tribute to my son, who was born this day 21 years ago. Happy Birthday, my dear son!


...learned to crawl, walk and talk quite early...


...loves action figurines, but also soft, cuddly toys (see the alf and ninja turtle, those were his faves...)


...at five years old, emceeing in pre-school wearing our national costume ...


...a solo number with the choir...


...more on next post...

    I agree, you look very pretty in the first pic. Your kids are growing up! 21...that's not a kid anymore =p

    Wow, even if it will be difficult to scan and file so many photos, it will indeed be worthwhile and very fulfilling. Good luck!

  20. Where have I been!?

    Mimi, I love all these pictures of your sons, thank you so much for sharing them, they are wonderful!
    I love looking at family pictures - it doesn't matter whose they are, they are always so fun to me.

    Your sons were adorable as babies and small children and now as young men are just handsome. I'm sure you're very proud of them. And, oh! Look at you! You were just a baby yourself when you had your oldest - wow! Of course you still look fantastic (is it the Fonda work out video, Mimi? Is it? =)

    Thanks again for sharing, I really enjoyed looking :)

    I'm so glad you enjoyed the pictures, I too love looking at anyone's family pics. Sometimes its hard though, when I get all sentimental looking at my own...
    Btw, I'm so amazed at what I could do with my scanner :D, I'll think of more pictures and stuff to share ...
