@tyan: She is the little girl in front; these shots were taken before their youngest brother was born or old enough. Mrs. VF is the third of five siblings.

@Saeed: The pic in the black frame was taken after a very, very rare snow in New Orleans. Probably less than an inch, but you can tell by the way they are dressed for the Arctic that it was cold. That happened in my young childhood once, back in the late 1950s, so I'm guessing this photo was taken at that time. We had a "blizzard" back in 1964 -- six inches of snow really fell on New Orleans on New Year's Eve -- wet, heavy snow that was gone the next day -- but the city went crazy.

Nice pictures of pictures - wonderful memories captured in the cherished spot you have in your house. Nicely taken shot and I like your library as well (I see you have your Max Lucado section like we do!! - In the Grip of Grace is one of my favorites!).

A likeable photo although I feel it would be improved by not having the bottom shelf visible, just my point of view
