(This is our oldest son Brian and our nephew Thomas (my brother Tom's oldest son), the boys were just four months apart.)
(Here is Grandma [my Dad's mother ~ after my grandfather passed away my grandmother moved from Minnesota to New York] and our oldest daughter Katie. I think this was Easter Sunday, Katie must have been about fifteen or sixteen months old. I don't remember her being so chubby! She looks like a little butterball!)
(The same day, taken in front of my parents house ~ myself & Ray with Erik, Katie, and Brian.)
(This is my nephew Edward ~ my sister Marybeth's youngest ~ I remember that he had blond curls but I don't remember his hair being that long. I'm guessing that this was a Christmas gathering because I see that our daughter Katie in the background is wearing red tights!)
(I'm holding my niece Erin here [I've posted about my niece Erin a lot]. I don't know what the occasion was, but this picture was taken at my parents house [the house that we live in now], I'm guessing it was Easter or Mother's Day.)
(This was our daughter Katie's First Birthday party, my brother Tom is in the background wearing Katie's Birthday crown! With Katie are my nephew Thomas and my sons Brian and Erik. We lived in a two-family house at that time, we were in the apartment upstairs, and my brother Tom and his wife Ann were in the apartment downstairs.)
(I'm not sure what this party was, I'm thinking it was either a big family reunion party, or maybe it was an Anniversary party for my Aunt Florence & Uncle Tom. Anyway, that's me with my older brothers Tom and John. I don't remember my brother Tommy having a moustache ever, but I guess he did. John and I do not look very good at all in this picture!)
I look at these old pictures and I just can not believe how fast life is flying by!
