Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - Celebrate Mother's Day - Show Us Some Photos

Your mission, should you decide to accept it (cue the Mission Impossible! music) is to:

1) Sunday, 13 May is Mother's Day in the USA. Let's celebrate it by showing some of our photos with our mother.

2) Extra credit: What did you call your mother during her life? What did your children call your mother?

3) More extra credit: Have you written a biography or tribute to your mother? If so, please share a link if you have one.

4) Share your photo(s) on your own blog post or in a Facebook or Google + post. Leave a link on this blog post to help us find your Mom photos.

I don't have a lot of photos with my mother but I do have some pretty special ones. These were all taken within the first year of my birth. The color one is from a slide--no idea who took it.

I called my mother "Mommy" and then "Mom." My daughters called her Grandma Lea. Unfortunately, she died when they were really young and didn't know her well.

This is probably the last one with my mother. She didn't like having her photo taken.

I wrote a tribute to my mother last year.

  1. I love the photos of you in the frilly dress! You are precious!

    1. Thanks. From what was told to me, I hated frilly, scratchy dresses.

  2. Great family photos. I love the your mom's smile in the first color photo. She could light up a room.
