Merry Christmas (and a bit of family history)

Seasonal Stripes Christmas
View the entire collection of cards.

Twenty years ago, Michael and I met in Memphis, Tennessee,
not far from Overton Park- pictured in our Christmas card above.
Because this spot was one of our favorite hang-outs,
I dressed the boys up and took them there
for a photo day with Mommy in November 2001.
At the time, Orville was 2 and Wilbur was 1.
Last month (exactly 10 years after I took the original pictures),
we were blessed with a whirlwind trip to Memphis.
We spent one day driving around town,
showing the boys all the spots important to our family history.
I made sure to take the boys back to the gazebo
for updated pictures so we can share
a little of our family history with you.

Merry Christmas!
