old photos

I love old photos. I guess you could say that as a hobby, I try to to collect as many old photos as I can. Two Christmas's ago I stole a bunch of Nick's moms albums as I could, and I scanned away. I ended up scanning about 1,500 photos for Sandy for Christmas. I still haven't finished scanning all of her photos, but that is something that I would love to accomplish this year. I would also like to get my hands on some of Nick's Grandma Cory's photos as well.
I'm not quite sure what my fascination with old family pictures is, I guess I just love to see what people look like over the years. What they use to look like, how they dressed and how that changes throughout the years. It's a snapshot of history. 
If you ask my husband, he jokes that I have to take photos of everything. He tells people that if I don't take pictures, then it never happened. It's just so important to me to take photos all the time.
I love that one day I can show my children these photos, and show them the family they come from. Though I'm not into genealogy, like the data collecting part, my parents say that this is a form of genealogy.
Anyways, this week I got my hands on some old photos from my Grandma Lybbert, and I can't wait to get some more. It's seriously an addiction!
