(Not So) Wordless Wednesday: Sanchez Family

I can be such a ditz sometimes.  I was going through a box of souvenirs from this past summer and came across this picture, which I’m sure my mom must have given me.  How on earth did I forget?  It was in between a stack of postcards and my kids’ junior ranger badges.

Well, it was a pleasant surprise. Maybe I should clean more often! Who knows what I would find.:)

This is the Sanchez family. The older two on the left are Patricia (Melhus) Sanchez and her husband Theodore.  The rest are their children(from L to R): Luella (Lou), Donald (my grandfather), Leonarda (Nonnie), Charlotte, and Peg.

I’m so excited to have this photograph.  It is going to help me in identifying his sisters in the other stack of pictures I have.

    What a wonderful picture, Jen! I love finds like that. Lately, my most exciting finds have been a couple dollars here and there found in my coat pocket… =pReplyCancel

    Recognized the term ‘wordless wednesday’ so I had to pop over and see. This is a wonderful photo! Old family photos are so amazing. A treasure all their own.ReplyCancel

    I’m in the same boat with ID’ing people in old photos – oh how I wished Granny had made it OBVIOUS who was who! Now I need to go through them all and try to see the resemblance over the years :-) JoReplyCancel

    The biggest problem I’ve had is trying to identify people in photos at vastly different ages. Sometimes the older them looks just like they did when they were young, but I keep running into the ones who don’t even resemble anyone in the family.ReplyCancel

    Grampa Theodore taught me how to tie my shoes when I was four. He told a tale of a rabbit searching for its hole while describing how the shoelaces tuck around and under then come tight. I wish I could remember those exact words. We lived in Lynwood at the time.ReplyCancel
