As you may already know, my parents take lots of photos. I am so glad for that. It is wonderful to be able to share those old photos with my children. It's too funny when my son says...."look papa had hair!" You may also remember me mentioning that my husband's family were the complete opposite.
For my wedding my mom created a signature book for us putting in old photos of Jeff & I as children. Anyway, I had to ask Jeff's grandmother for photos of him. When looking through photos she showed me photos from her own wedding. There were only 10 left...the rest were destroyed in a fire. I got an idea one Christmas for grandma. Grandpa had passed away earlier that year and I thought grandma would love it. My brother-in-law grabbed those old wedding photos for me and I had a friend I worked with scan them & print them for me. He also put the photos on a floppy disk (remember those?). I called grandma one day and asked her lots of questions about her wedding and then set out to create a wedding album for her. I created 2 albums, one for her and one for me.
Well, she passed away less than 2yrs ago and that wedding album & her wedding pictures disappeared... Anyway, my father-in-law has none of the photos. For this father's day, I found that floppy disk and created an album through Shutterfly for him.
I gave him the album yesterday and he LOVED it.
