Then and Now

I have been rummaging through my picture stash again. This month Michael and I will be celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary. We will also be heading to the Oregon Coast in a week for a Godsey Family Retreat. Thirty of the Godsey Clan will be there. Yes, I said 30 people and that includes the newest member, Hudson Godsey, a mere one day old!

So here we all are on July 29, 1989 in Los Angeles:

Great post, Kari! Seven year old Andy looks like quite the charmer, almost as much so as the 27 year old version. I'm so excited for the retreat...this is going to be a long week!!

Hi Lindsay... Andy will forever be a charmer!

I can't wait to see that new baby. Let me know if you want me to make something for Monday afternoon. We will be sitting here waiting for Joey's plane. He doesn't get in until 8pm, grrr.

I can't wait for the beach trip! We need to get another sibling photo since we will all be there!

Good Idea Sarah. And there will be plenty of people around to take the photo!
