Papa Lee and Paul Visit at Christmas 1991 -- Post 618 of (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

I can't help it, I can't do a wordless post! I found some more family photos hiding in Linda's family photo boxes. This is one of my favorite photographs:

This photo was taken at Christmas 1991 at our home in Chula Vista.  Linda's father, Lee Leland (1911-2002) and her brother Paul came down to visit and see our family.  They did this every other year - we traveled as a family to San Francisco in the alternate years.

The photo shows Linda, me, Papa Lee and brother Paul relaxing in our living room.  The shades are drawn and you can barely see the unlit Christmas tree in the background.  I wish I had a better photo.

These photos were scanned from photographs created from developed film prints and are not particularly sharp, but they are what we have!

Several times a year when our children were growing up, Linda sent photographs to her parents and brother in San Francisco. When her father died in 2002, her brother sorted out the photos and gave Linda the ones that were of our family and the ones interacting with them. They were given to us in a big box of stuff back in 2006, and we finally looked at them last year! I've started digitizing them for use in these Wordless Wednesday posts.

I recently started subscribing to Genea-Musings and must tell you how much I am enjoying your blog! Thank you!!! As I have recently began working on my family genealogy (after a long hiatus) I truly appreciate the way you describe in detail your research process. It certainly helps me in my process. As for pictures, I am currently trying to spend time each week going through all the pictures we have and scanning them. I am also lamenting the fact that I did not take the time to write down names of people or places on the back of the pictures. It's a daunting project!!
