FC: Our Family Jewels Volumne 1
1: Our first home was a mobile home in Orem. Wes was born Sept. 10 1976. A week later Dad had back surgery and had to lay flat on his back for weeks. Luckily he had Wes and Josie to entertain him.
2: First day home from the hospital. | And then there was Stacy. She was born July 3, 1978 and was our sweetheart. By then we had moved to Provo.
3: We moved back to Orem and on Oct 23, 1979 Brady was born. Our family was complete. | Brady was our snuggely, fat cheeked baby who loved to lay on your shoulder and have his back rubbed.
5: One day Brady, at not even 1 year old, decided to climb the basement stairs by himself. Wes and Stacy watched him till he got to the top and then told us what he was doing.
6: Grandpa Joe with Wes , Stacy, and Brady
7: This is what happens when you fall out of a moving truck. | When Wes was 5, he was commenting on his dad's beard. Wes said he should grow it till it was halfway down his chest. Then totally serious he said,"Then birds and mice and dogs could live in there". | This is actually Brady dressed in Stacy's old pink jammies.
8: One time I gave Josie a haircut that was really short. When Brady (at 3 yrs) saw her, he got so excited because he thought we had a new cat. | Puppies at Grandma Ewings
9: Brady snoozing with Wiley Coyote | Josie with Wes and Stacy
10: I'm smiling because you're my brother... | and there's nothing you can do about it.
11: Wes had his own way of either bribing or threatening Stacy. He just told her he wouldn't be her sister anymore.
12: This is probably the only photo in existence of a messy Brady. He just never got dirty. Now Wes and Stacy, however, that's another story. | Before | Jaimie and Brady
13: and After | William, Wes, Jared, Stacy, Shaun, Julie | William, Jared, Wes
14: For a while, Star Wars was Wes' favorite movie. He even had the Darth Vadar helmet. | Apparently Stacy liked it too. | Chickenpox! Or as Stacy called them, Chickenpops!
15: At the airport with Dave and Scott when they left on their missions.
16: Kirk Crabb, Chris Larson, Wes, Stacy, Brady | First day of school for Kirk, Wes, Ryan Johnson, & Aubrey Glaus. Stacy didn't want to be left out.
17: And other first days of school for the next few years. | One day we were talking about show and tell for Wes at school. Afterwards Stacy wanted to go to "fish and tell".
18: Butterfly kisses, and lady bug hugs. Sleep tight, little one, like a bug in a rug. | After a hard day at the zoo
20: Happy Birthday!!! | Birthday cake is the only food you can blow on and spit on and everybody still rushes to get a piece.
21: WOW!! Just how old are you???
22: Fun with the family at Grandma Ewing's house. Check out the hands. | This may be the first evidence of Stacy's love affair with the camera.
23: Happy Halloween | Wes is ET. Have no idea who the ghost is. | Brady
24: Brady got a Teddy Ruxpin for Christmas one year. | Merry Christmas
25: Stacy got this doll another year. | Cool shirt!! | Wes liked to share
26: Not quite sure if this is Wes or Brady. They both wore the same coat.
28: so... wonder who wrote this? And how could this picture of innocence be so guilty? | Brady & Wes Ironiclly, Wes is the one who always made fun of people wearing "shaky pants".
30: In every conceivable manner, the family is our link to the past, our bridge to the future. --Alex Haley
31: Family...to be continued.
