Long Time Coming

My parents have finally moved into the house that they had built.  March 1 was the official move in date.
All those months of being their own contractor have finally paid off.  My sister, niece, her nephew and I drove out there march 16th to help with unpacking. (and again on march 25) I'll have to post more pictures once all the unpacking is done and stuff hung on walls.  every picture I have has boxes in it.
Front (sort of ) view of the house
back of the house
 I've also been trying to scan family photo's into the computer so we can all have copies of them.  We've come across some we have never seen before.  Really makes me miss St Louis.  I often wish that we hadn't moved away and that I had grown up there along with all the other cousins and family.
My grandmother-Clara Adams and neighbor. (good friend of the family)
Luther Montgomery on the right (grandfather) he had such a wonderful smile and laugh. (his brother on the left)

Montgomery family (minus my mom) 717 Ruprecht in Lemay Missouri

My grandfather, aunt, grandmother, aunt and uncle
luther, norma, clara, linda and kevin.  Quite the dapper family. Easter maybe?  (grandpa didn't go with them to church)

Love seeing these pictures. I love the front porch on the house, I can picture sitting there and rocking, enjoying the outdoor vies and shade.
Wonderful you are getting those old pictures scanned, priceless!
