I have this brilliant idea or maybe in the end, a not so brilliant idea of hanging pictures in a fashion or style on a large wall depicting our family tree. I probably won't be able to go back more than Scott's and my Great-Grandparents, or use 5x7's or something to be able to fit the frames on the wall without looking too cluttered.
I LOVE knowing about my family. Even when I was a little girl, which I still am *cough*, I would sit and listen to my family tell stories about their life growing up in Kentucky and about the coal mines. And my Dad's side of the family were farmers, to hear their stories about working in the cotton fields. Funny how you find out all this "secret" information that nobody talks about.
This is my Maternal Grandmother with her first four children, I'm sure my Mom was born by then but was absent in the picture because she spent the first few years of her life in the Shriners Hospital In Lexington, KY. I can only hope that I will be as beautiful as my Ma-Maw. Wonderful Lady.

Wouldn't these pictures look great in some antique frames on the wall?
I'm a SAHM to 8 children. 5 biological children and 3 step-children. Most of the time I feel crazy and like I don't know what I'm doing and the other half I'm trying to play catch up. I live by the seat of my pants, not because I choose to but because that's the way it is.
