Family

Last night I made cookies (chocolate chip with pecans in case you were wondering) and dug through several boxes of old photos. Hillarey has a birthday coming up and I do believe that means it’s time to embarrass my daughter on FB with a photo montage. I only chose adorable photos so maybe she won’t be too weirded out. While I was digging through boxes and albums I found some photos that are just too sweet/funny/interesting not to share. See any resemblances?

Charlie Bell, my paternal grandfather.

Floyd Hillary Gibson, my maternal grandfather. (My daughter is named for my grandfather.)

Holey Moley – this is me at the awkward stage. Either 7th or 8th grade.

College wasn’t just about studying hard. On my left is my very proper friend Paula.
My great great grandmother, Agnes Jane Petitt-Gibson.

My lovely mother Melba Gibson-Bell.
The sweetest little girl in the world, Hillarey. (named for her great-grandfather)

My beautiful daughter Hillarey in 8th grade.

What you may see in some of these photos is a striking family trait. It’s the shape of our faces – from Agnes Jane Petitt-Gibson to my grandfather, to my mother, to me, and on to my daughter Hillarey.
