I’ve Been Memed

by jessicaturner on March 3, 2009

Jamie at Blonde Mom Blog memed me.

Rules: Choose the 6th image out of your 6th picture folder from your computer and blog it. Then tag 6 more people to do the same.

The sixth folder on my external drive is “heritage.” In it are two folders, so I went into the first (my dad’s family) and the sixth picture is of my great-great-grandparents (my grandfather’s mother’s parents). All I know about the photo is that it was taken on their anniversary. If you look closely on the wall they have a plaque that says “The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life is Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23″ I don’t know anything about their faith, but I love that that reminder was hanging in their home.

Opening this folder caused me to see this photo of my dad.
We sometimes think Elias looks like my dad as a baby. What do you think?

Oh and the six people I tag:

Brandi at Brandi and Boys
Sara at Gitzen Girl
Aunt Gail at Down This Path Called Breast Cancer
My “twin” Kelli at Confessions of a Mama Queen
Angie at Bring the Rain
Jenni at Leading in Shades of Grey

Your dad was cute, don’t get me wrong, but Elias is absolutely beautiful. And he smiles all of the time. You can’t beat that! There is definitely some family resemblance though.

There is a definate resemblance- Elias’ face a little more round, but that is the only difference I think! Amazing isn’t it!

For sure…Elias has a strong resemblance to your dad's baby picture. I've always thought he bore a strong resemblance to you as well (though I'm sure you can see your husband in him too). LOVE your blog and how you share your life here! Very sweet!

About 3 weeks ago my husband and I drove through Nashville (twice) on our way to Florida (& back) and I thought of you! :-) You and Angie and people I really know there too! Love that town and wish I could visit at length again sometime.

Stay well and thank you for being so open here!

I’ve always believed Elias looks like you. And you must favor your dad some because that picture shows some resemblance, too.

Love the old photos.

Thanks for the “tag”.

Yes, I definitely think there is some resemblance, but Elias is definitely still cuter :)

I definitely see a resemblance! I love old family photos. I started scanning a lot of them last year for my mom.

Thanks for playing along!
