Hi everyone ~

Today I am learning to use my scanner and upload old photos, and I will post as I get the hang of it. Here is the first effort:

September, 1961 Merme's First Day of School with a quilt for nap time made for me by my Aunt Marion.

If the sizing isn't correct, please, someone, jump in and help!

Does anyone know why these photos are coming out so much darker than they are in real life? They look okay in Adobe photshop and in Photobucket.

In the one of me & Maxi in the snow you should be able to see my face just fine and the red trim of my big hood.

My family loves this photo. Maxi and I were playing in the rocker when Edward pointed the camera at us and called our names. We both turned toward him, making the same face!!

Merme,
Love the pics of you and Maxi.... he was so little... like the twins- they are bigger than Nicoli now...
Looks like you are having a ball with your scanner and new puter-- fun isn't it?
Have fun and keep them coming!
