This is one of my all time favorite pictures! I came across it the other day out of nowhere and took it as a sign that it should be shared. The picture was taken in December of 1993 at Colonial Williamsburg. My sister Eileen must have taken the picture. Several of the ladies of our clan met in Williamsburg for a long weekend. My sweet cousin Beth works there and we had such a fun trip. Everything was decorated for the holidays and was just beautiful.
We almost weren’t able to make the trip. On the day we were to leave Buffalo was enjoying bit of a snowstorm – did anyone see the Bills game this weekend? It was kind of like that! We were the last flight out as they were closing the airport. I can still remember watching them de-ice the plane.
We had so many laughs and made great memories on this trip. Beth still works at Williamsburg and her sisters Meg and Maureen live there now too. Maybe it’s time for another trip…
Happy Anniversary to my cousin Mary Claire and her husband Dick. They were married this week in October 1976. The picture was taken at the Stafford Country Club in Stafford, NY. I love everything about this picture – Mary Claire is gorgeous. All 5 of the Marshall children are here with spouses as are many of the Marshall cousins. The clothes and hairstyles are fabulous!
This is not a very old picture, but I sure do love it a lot. After many years of talking about having a family reunion, we actually did it. This is a picture of the Marshall cousins (grandchildren of Ed and Ida Pfundstein Marshall). We were missing a few but fairly well represented nonetheless. The reunion was held where I live, Seven Springs in Batavia, NY, on August 8, 2011. It was such a great day to spend with our cousins!!
Even though the picture is only 6 yrs old, we have lost 2 cousins from this group as well as 2 aunts and an uncle. 10 days after the picture was taken, my husband and I welcomed our third son to the family! There have been several more little ones added over the years as well.
Even though we are scattered all over, we still get together when we can. We haven’t had a reunion quite this big in a few years – maybe time to start planning again…
