GENERATIONAL PICTURES

I'm still busy sorting and organizing bunches of photos.  It's no wonder it takes me forever, as I get hung up on comparing generational pictures.  In my immediate family, there are four generations of us with the middle name of Jeanne -- my mother was Lois Jeanne; me, Sally Jeanne; our daughter, Jennifer Jeanne; and our granddaughter, Caitlin Jeanne.  Here are three collages with the four of us.

First, in white baby dresses:
Then, with wheels:
And, in our fancy dresses:
I love the picture of my mother in the collage above.  She was about to graduate from Hutchinson, Kansas Junior College at the age of 17.  She was on scholarship -- they were quite poor, so I'm sure that dress was very special to her.  The dress was purchased to wear in the May Queen Court.  With the photo, I found this newspaper clipping from 1937.  Mother was the Jeanne listed.  In my opinion, she should have been the Queen!

Love the generational pictures. Your granddaughter looks remarkably
Ike your mother. They must be about the same age in the last two groups of pictures. How beautiful you all are!

Oh my, you must know that I 'loved' your collage photos of the four middle names of Jeanne. That is actually my middle name as well. My name is Sylva Jeanne without the 'i' and I go by my middle name. I was also born in Oct. 1939. Your photos are awesome of four beautiful women. Thank you for sharing in Blue Monday today.

xo, Jeanne

PS: My husband and I have been married 53 years. We have alot in common. Smile.
