But they grew up anyway!

Elaine at Pear Tree Blog kindly expressed an interest in a photo of my brood nearly fifty years later. This picture is the most recent of all of us together. It was taken several Christmases ago when I gave everyone a cookbook with all our family favorite recipes and memories. I sometimes post blogs of excerpts from the book.

They are Left to Right: Daughter #1, Daughter #3, Son #4 and Daughter #2. The blob in the middle is me.
(We actually all have blue eyes--the red-eye function on the camera didn't work.)

Lovely family photo. Look forward to lots of recipes from your collection.

Thank you! It is a lovely photo, of all of you. The cookbook is a really inspired idea and, like Buttercup, I hope we can look forward to some excerpts.

Everyone has feet and legs and is handsome to boot. I have old faded photos like that from a silly little 110film camera. Got them scanned just in time.

Great photo, and great gift for your family! Seeing the faded old photo, I couldn't even tell that the youngest was a boy.
