Big Sister and Little Brothers ~ Through the Years

The word prompt for the 11th Edition of Smile for the Camera is brothers and sisters. We are asked to show that picture from our family photographs that shows our rendition of brothers & sisters.

I am fortunate to have many pictures of my Mom and her brothers, so this seemed the ideal time and place to display just a few. I happen to think they are totally adorable children ~ and naturally my Mom is the cutest of the lot!! So first, a more formal portrait of the trio and then a few snapshots.

All dressed up for Easter in Denver, CO.

Traveling across Kansas ~ as much "fun" then as it is now!

Heading off for school in Hamilton, OH - big sister is still the tallest...slightly.

By the time big sister is graduating from high school, both little brothers are taller than she is - even "baby" Jack at only 12 years old.

Fast forward about 25 years ~ big sister is in the back on the far left, "baby" Jack is to the far right with Robert next to him...both are well over 6 feet tall while big sister never made it over 5' 4"...but she never let the fact that they both tower over her deter her from ruling the roost. She is, after all, the big sister and that is something that never changed!!


  1. You are fortunate to have these great photos of your mother and her siblings.

  2. Hi Janet ~
    I certainly agree! And these are just a small number of what I have as my grandfather loved to take pictures. Fortunately for all of us, he also loved to put them in albums and put captions and dates on them. :-)
