Noah and I went to breakfast one morning and later we did some cooking together.
Following the death of Max Klein in 1993, his daughter, Jacquelyn Schiffman, donated the Palmer Paint Co. archives to the Smithsonian Museum of American History. The archival materials have been placed in the museum’s Archives Center where they have been designated collection #544, the Paint by Number Collection, and are available to both the public and museum staff for research and exhibition purposes.(source)
This grainy photo of my sister and I posing for her prom shows PBN paintings in the background
Thinking it might be fun to paint one myself, I bought a kit. And fun it was! Not much artistic or creative ability needed but I found it a very relaxing and enjoyable activity. Like coloring or doing a jigsaw puzzle. (Kits available today use acrylic rather than oil paint)
I looked forward to moments I was able to sit at the table and allow the thoughts and concerns of the day to disappear as I applied color and watched as the scene slowly came alive. Sometimes I would choose a different color or blend two colors together using the lines and directions as just a guide.
This adorable photo is of our youngest grandchild, Jethro. His mama took the picture and I couldn’t resist sharing. I didn’t make the hat – it was in a hand-me-down container of clothes he received.
Since many of our family members don’t get to see them very often and since two really awesome guys are having birthdays, we got together to celebrate.
These two little girls became instant best friends forever.
Does anyone know the genealogical relationship between children that share the same great-grandparents (their grandparents are sisters) ?
Cambrie is my grandchild and Olivia is my sisters grandchild ~ I think that makes them second cousins?
our niece, Toni (with her cousin, Jamie’s baby Jethro) (1st cousin once removed?)
my brother, Frank and our son-in-law, Brad
my sister-in-law, Arlene and our daughter Jill
Carol, me, Carol’s daughter Chris and Chris’ daughter Alexis

Many years ago, our sister-in-law began a tradition of snapping Christmas photos of my brother (her husband) my sister and I.
They have become cherished memories for each of us.
