My Peterson Peeps

December 13, 2016

This has to be my favorite photo of the day.


I took it while waiting for some coffee to heat up in the microwave oven… that is, this photo is on the wall in the kitchen and, as I often do while reheating food, I was staring for the gazillionth time at all these crazy photos…


The photo was taken at my grandparents’ 50th wedding anniversary party.  It features grandpa and grandma with their grandchildren (at the time) on the couch, and their three kids and their spouses standing behind.

Clockwise from top left: Uncle Vic (Peterson) and Aunt Joy; Uncle Bud and Aunt Ellie (formerly Peterson); Dad (Peterson) and mom; Matty, Chris, Grandma, Heidi, Grandpa, Jay and moi (she of the white lipstick).

Not pictured/born yet: Bob and Eric (Johnson)

I’m going to ask Aunt Ellie what the year is.. stay tuned.
