Anniversary Time Around Here...

Ray & Nori, Mark & I, and Tony & Judy all have celebrated our wedding anniversaries over the last couple of days.  All three couple got married on what was then Labor Day Weekends.

Ray and Nori

Sid & Selma Riley with the Bride & Groom
Mark & Lynne King

I cannot find a scanned photo of the wedding to include but here is a picture from the time period.

Tony and Judy Raymer
August 29, 1987
Atlanta, Georgia

I cannot believe that I don't have a picture to share.  I received a picture of their wedding back from Theda but I gave it to Judy before scanning.  Judy, send me one and I'll add to the post!

This picture was labeled by Selma as1915.  By the pattern of the stars it appears to be a 45 star flag, in use from 1896-1908.
Given how old EAB appears and the age of the daughters, 1915 does look right.  Selma didn't identify the three girls.  Maybe  Selma in the middle?
Mom and Dad's neighborhood has a parade every year.  This picture is from the Bicentennial.  Ray was part of the Kazoo Band and I am in the convertible in the background.  Judy was on a float as the Statue of Liberty, can't find the picture.  The tradition continues and when my boys were small they were in the parade too.
 This was from 1992 (500th Anniversary --1492 Columbus Sailed the Ocean Blue.  They were Montezuma and Cortez  (makes sense because their father is an Anthropologist who studies Mexico).

Documenting other "Family" members

Pets occupy an important role in our lives. In most cases, we don't know about our ancestors and the role pets may have played in their lives.  Of course, pets didn't occupy the role they do now and probably weren't as important to them.
I have this picture of Tom and Lizzie's dog, Toni

Here are Judy and I with our dog Spook in Winchester,VA
Make sure you document pets as part of your family's history!

Happy Birthday to Me

Looking for something to blog about tonight and I am going to cheat and do an easy posting.
Today is my birthday.  I was born in the same hospital as both my parents, Akron City Hospital.
I have always said I was born under a lucky star- great, great parents.
Here is a picture of me with my Grandparents:  Eunice and Dwight Cork and Sid and Selma Riley.

Documenting Christmas Traditions

I saw on another blog the importance of documenting your family's Christmas Traditions.  We can spend so much time and energy documenting the lives of our ancestors that we forget to document our own family.  I am sure there are many elaborate traditions but some simple ones as well.

I am sure many families do what we did as children and what we did with our children, New Jammies on Christmas Eve.  Trust me, it is much harder to do with boys.

Think about your traditions and how they started.  One of our "little" traditions has to do with Captain Crunch.  Wouldn't Quaker Oats be thrilled?  When the kids were little Mom and Dad would have them all over to spend the night before Christmas to unwrap Mom's Santas.  It became known as Santa Slumber Party.  They would give them Christmas Captain Crunch for breakfast.  The Captain Crunch morphed into what they wanted for Christmas Dinner.  Every year Dad still looks for it and my boys, now in their 20's, still want it if it can be found.
