FRIDAY PHOTO FLASHBACK

I started "Friday Photo Flashback" because I have so many pictures from my PRE-digital camera days. I thought it would be fun to scan them and share them here with you. I'm having so much fun doing this, that I would love for you to join me, too! So dig out the photo albums and put your scanner to good use! Don't forget to sign in to MckLinky so we can all visit and comment on each others blogs!

This was a VERY special day for my husband.

In fact, it was a special day for his entire family.

Why..you ask?

This was the day he was officially adopted.

However, his parents had him since he was just three days old. So, to them, he was already their son. In this picture he was 6 years old (the age of my youngest daughter now).

1977
