Proctor Photos

These photos were found in an envelope labled "Proctor".

They are related somehow to the Seeleys and the Peels and 
maybe the Ericksens.

The last two photos do have names attached.
Hope someone can identify them all.

To Nourish and Strengthen Our Bodies

At the age of 92, Alice Peel Hafen (my sweet mother-in-law), wrote this cookbook as requested by family and friends who had enjoyed the many tasty dishes she had prepared over the years.  With the help of Marc Smith, a nephew she was able to put this collection together.  It not only contains her treasured recipes, but also a wealth of photos and memories she wished to share.  This blog has already shared some of these with you.   Here I will include the Introduction to her book, her personal history and a few of the pictures contained in the first few pages of  her book.  

More to come..........

Valentines From the Past

Oh how I wish I could scan these in 3D.  I love old Valentines

 This little girl with a guitar has movable parts.  If you
pull downward on her extended red bow, she strums
the guitar.
On the back it says "To Alice from Louise".  


This 3 D Valentine was given to JoAnn Hafen  (Granger) from
Mary Louise Madsen (Seamons)
It pulls from the bottom revealing a mirror on the inside of the trunk 
that says "My Valentine, I Love You Best"
On each side are honeycomb hearts.
Just lovely.

You can see on this one the white envelope pulls open the message inside "Be My Valentine".
When the envelope pushes back, it reveals a little guy that says " Say You'll be Mine Won't You Please".

You Probably guessed.  The fan moves up and down on this cute little Kitty.

This one is so beautiful.  
It opens up in many layers.
On the back 
"To Alice Peel from Chariton"
