family pictures

When I was a kid my grandparents' living room was devoted to family pictures. They had a whole wall that we all called the cousin wall. In the center there was a framed family tree with each of our names and birthstones on it and then it was surrounded by each of our school pictures. All 20 of us grandchildren always looked forward to giving Grandma and Granddaddy our new school pictures. When my Grandfather moved I think dismantling that wall was the hardest part. I'm looking forward to the day when I have a wall of family portraits.
