Five Months and Counting

Bertha Pauline Klungreseter (Bryan's Grandma Birthday)
And one picture of Anders Klungreseter (Bryan's Grandpa)

Her long hair is a lovely sight! She is holding Frank Sr.

Uncle John is missing.
1963ish?
Bryan's dad is standing in the back.


I have no idea how to get this second copy off. It is my favorite childhood pic of my daddy. My oldest son Samuel looks so much like his grandpa. And they both LOVE baseball! And they both have those same Klungreseter pre-orthodonture :)


Another of my favorite Norseman!
Our Dad in Solvang mid-90s

Feeling nostalgic today. Wanted to share these pictures of Bryan's family legacy. Many of these beautiful faces cannot be seen this side of Heaven.
Funny how those Norse genes keep cropping up. Case in point: Samuel David, Bryan's nephew--boy you can see all that Norweigan blood. Miss you Aunt Ingy! Thinking of the party in Heaven today!

Family Trees-there are NUTS in EVERY ONE! :)

what a dork! i am a nut. I am thankful YOU know who is who and what is what! Thanks for all the corrections. I LOVE these old pictures. I wish I had copies of them (and some of the other wonderful ones you and Auntie Joy have). That is on my "TO DO List" for the future, come down and make copies of them and write the names/dates on the back of them.

It is unbelievable how alike Johan and your dad look! I was sure it was Grandpa.

Well my aunty! I love you. I was so sure you would still be peeking occasionally so I KNEW my day-brightener would get to you soon. I am thinking of you and praying for you. Hugs to everyone please.

love, kelly

PS I think my Uncle Keith is compiling a similiar family tree and history for the Parker side of the family so maybe I can include some of those for Bryan's momma's side soon.

Kelly,
Wow, what a trip down memory lane! I see what you mean about poor little Samuel and me, we both have the "that aboy over bite!" Bryan had it also, but that was one thing he DID take care of, those nasty teeth and his terrible eye-sight. He loved it when he got his eyes fixed and found out that he could hit homeruns all over the lot when he actually saw the ball!!! Seeing pictures of my mom,dad,grandma and grandpa along with the rest of the family posted here is truly wonderful and I hope some of the people who have visited the sight before come back and see them also.

Luv,
Daddy
