Seamless

Seamless - Family Portrait

“This is my Uncle Leonard and his family. Aunt LouJean was a great seamstress, and just HAD to make shirts and pants for the whole family every time we had a reunion. This was one of the CLASSIC examples.¬† My favorite is how Uncle Leonard’s shirt looks like a permanent bib has been sewn on it, and Aunt LouJean’s shirt is almost blazer-like with the pink lapels and the pink rolled up sleeves.”

Irish Spring

Irish Spring - Family Portrait

“Going through old pictures tonight and found this blast from the past…..the “Von Lightsey” family portrait!!!! Oh my!! My aunt (who helped run the Grapevine Opry at the time) had her costume designer make these matching outfits for our family to wear to the shows…..well, Mom wanted her to know how grateful we were so she took us Olan Mills for family portraits!! At one of the opry shows, we were all sitting on the front row…and a performer asked if we were a bowling team?!?! Good times! My dad is a great sport! I think Brent and Susan do look adorable with their orange hair and cute grins! I was getting braces put on the next day, so I was not wanting to show my teeth! (goofy nerd, I know!). Glad Mom had us do this picture…it’s created plenty of laughs through the years! Even at my mom’s funeral four and a half years ago…we had this picture as a part of her slideshow. The church was packed, and when this picture came up on the screen, there was a huge rumble of laughter through the tears! Precious memories, for sure!!!”

Swiss Misters

Swiss Misters - Behind The Awkwardness

“Me with my two brothers in 1968. We just moved to Switzerland¬† where my father got a good job with a much better salary than before. So we were showing off a new bicycle, a new scooter, new clothes, and my mother’s impeccable sense of fashion.”

Feeling Groovy

Feeling Groovy - Behind The Awkwardness

“My “Far-Out” mama apparently thought all of us wearing tie-dye and making our hair as feathered as possible would make the perfect family photo. Please keep in mind this was taken in 1992, when neither tie-dye nor blue eyeliner were in fashion… Thanks Mom!”
