1977 !!

A dear long time friend of mine,
Sonja Kland, surprised me in the mail today
with this newspaper advertizement of our family back in 1977.


She saved this for 34 years! How fun to see it again.

They spelled my oldest son Brock's name wrong, 
but there he is with his cousin Robin sitting in that little basket. 
I remember that day like it was last week. 
Those are 6 of my 7 siblings...only my sister Robin is missing from this picture. 
I think she may have been in Provo at the time attending BYU.
I was only 23. Oh my. My sons are all older now than I was in that picture!

Scrapally~ Right, 7 of the 8 were pictured, plus the 2 in law children...my husband and my brother Richard's wife. I'm one of those 7 so that means I have 6 of my siblings in that picture. Make sense?

My Dad saved old newspaper clippings. When he and my mother passed away it was a real treat to see them.

Families a just too awesome!

How times have changed...can you imagine an ad today with the residence address and the names of all the people there?? The copy writer should have just continued, "the Rozier's sleep routine hours, but don't worry the doors are never locked should you care to drop by and take a gander at the carpet, have a piece of toast, or help yourself to a TV."

So true Richard!! And no one would have ever noticed if someone had come in during the night. If Mom woke up and found them, she would just think they were homeless and try to feed them.
