Vintage Val...

So for awhile I now I have been a bit sad. You see I am the first born grand daughter on both sides of the family. On my mom's side I was super close to my grandpa when i was little. We did everything together. Sadly he died when I was in 5th grade. I can still see him in my head and I have a ton of memories of him, but I can no longer hear his voice. Its a sad sad thing for me. I feel blessed to be one of the older children and to even have memories but it kills me that they are slowly slipping from me after all these years. He's been gone a little over 20 years now.

This then prompted me to fix that. So I am starting out on a year long journey to create a Hawkinson family video with video clips and old photos all mixed together of our whole family! To get started I went first to my grandma's house and looked through all her old photos this Sunday. I'm not ready to share the family stuff yet as I need to finish scanning and what not but I do have a few of me and my family to share today that I think are just so sweet!

I'm only 6 months old here or maybe even 5 months. I was born in June and these are my first Christman pictures taken that year.
