you know, it's not hard to google image search and save a picture to post. even I have figured out how to do it.

I have this blog. and I have gotten complaints over the years. so, certain people I no longer post much about. definitely not stolen Facebook pictures. but, I am the amateur genealogist. not as gung ho as I once was. But, it does seem important to document. even if it's just half-assed. somewhere I have written documentation. need to add this baby girl in. both their kids names start with K. can't fault them there, I have 3 kids who all start with K.

yesterday was the celebration of Kevin's Grandma Marie

there were old pictures on display. I thought it would be cool if someone recreated the grandkids picture....but not my family and I had to leave. And someone else took group pictures that were missing Koren, Cody, Ian, Coralie, Taylore, Zerelda, and Janet's husband Bob. and Lije's wife Donna....probably others I 'm not thinking of. Katie & I were at Jared's funeral.
