A Project I'm Not Done With

I Have a good friend that gave me the idea of making a Family Missinary Board.You May be asking what this picture has to do with Missionaries, or missionary work. Absolutely Nothing! I found this picture while I was Looking for the two pictures below. I thought it was adorable. I also thought it looked a lot like my nephew Caleb. I still giggle everytime I look at it and picture Caleb in a cute little yellow dress.
So I'll leave this one to all my siblings out there. Does she look familiar?
So, Back to my project. While making my miissionary board I concluded that I wouldn't have enough room on my little 3'X2.5' board do do all my siblings and their spouses that went on missions, but I think I'm going to make a BIG one for My Mom where we can put all of her chilren and their spouses that served missions and where she can keep track of all the grandkids that are now starting to go, It'll have to be HUGE! This is the only picture of my mom that I could find that was closest to 21 years of age.
This is My Dad's Highschool Graduation picture. He actually joined the church after high school and went on his mission at age 21( I believe)

This is what I have done so far. Though it's hard to see I have a pin and string leading to each place that the people on the board served their missions. Origionally I was going to just do Roger, Me, and grandparents as far back as we could find. But, as I sit here thinking about it... I think I will do siblings and there spouses. I'm just going to have to make the pictures very small say 1.5 X 1 inch or smaller. It is A LOT of fun to see the excitement my kids have as they sit by the board and try to guess where they'll get to go on their missions.

That's cool. Whose wedding was Mom at? I can't tell how old she is but she is pretty. That does look a lot like Caleb the shape of the head is a little off but the rest is pretty close. Does that mean he is going to look like Carolyn when he is older?

That picture of me was at my sister, Naty's Wedding. I was very pregnant with Susan.
Where did you get all those pictures? I'm not sure I have them all. I do think it would be fun to have the map include all the family missionaries.

Awesome....Wow it is amazing how much your brothers look like your dad. I can even see a huge resemblence in Susans' Joshua.

Crazy, fun. Great heritage
