And speaking of the extended family tree - they throw a big kink in the system as it appears grandma inherited many of their photo collections which means we have 5+ copies of certain photos that were sent to all the families. There's a cute set of twins in the extended family (not my dad and uncle, though they're cute as well*) for whom we have seemingly hundreds of photos that were sent to my grandma, great grandma, and great aunts and uncles. Part of the overwhelmingness of these photos is the fact that I know there are tons of duplicates within the old photos but until I get them in the same section of the pile I feel like I keep going through the same photos. The plus side of the duplicates however is the hope that at least one somewhere along the line got labeled.
In the meantime, (and before I get into the embarrassing progression of awkward photos of Matt and I holding kittens) here are just a few more of me and Uncle Matt being kinda cute:
Daddy (every once in a while I come across an errant picture or something in our stuff and enjoy scanning them in. His family pictures don't need the "work" that ours do however):
Me and my favorite quilt:
Catherine all pretty in pink:
* I have no idea what these two are doing in this picture, but due to the awesomeness of their hair, it might be the only picture I've seen where Dad and Don look anything like twins:
