“This is my family circa 1994. We heard ‘Where’s Waldo?’ so many times. All us kids were so embarrassed to wear these, but my dad made us wear them whenever we were in public!”

“This is my family in the 90’s. We lived in Alaska at the time, so I guess my parents thought our relatives would like to see us like this.”

“This was a family picture of my siblings and I taken a few years ago. I decided it would be a good idea to wear plaid and my brothers decided to follow suit. My sister however, not having plaid, raged.”

“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!!!”
