I am the oldest of four children born to Maxine and Don Anderson.
Most of the pictures below are of large enough resolution that you can right click it and view the picture in full size.
I think I was in about
the 9th grade when this Easter picture was taken. Mom was taking the pictures....(and
she made the boy's jackets!).

Siblings & Mom 2005: Chris, Andy, Mom (Maxine), David, Susan
Dad (Don) died of lung cancer in 1981, and Mom has remarried....a couple of times....but I think she's finally "cured" of any need to be married, and is blissfully single. Mom's recently purchased a new home close to my Sister, Chris and moved in.
|This is Mom dressed for a Mardi Gras Balls in 1987 & 1993.|
Of course, we all grew up, and everyone--besides me--is married with kids of their own.

Nieces & Nephews
Mom (Maxine) seems to have a full time job keeping up with all the granchildren. She has 6 Grandchildren but the youngest are all within 4 years of each other in ages. Four Grandchildren under the age of 5 is a handful for anyone!
Both Sam and Daniel joined the USAF after high school

My Brother David's Family
My brother David, is 11 months
younger than I am.
These early pictures of the boys are from 1997.
In 2007 David became a widower. It wasn't long before Kim went to the car dealership where David works and they met. They married before Christmas 2007. Kim is also a nurse.
David got another son in the bargain, James.
David has a real passion for the woods and hunting. He hunts predominantly with a bow & arrow, and is pretty good at it! (He can cook what he kills too!) You can get his recipes by e-mailing him at "Davidhunts@aol.com"

My Brother Andy's Family
|My brother Andy Anderson
is 9 years younger than I am. We are the most alike in temperment--although I like
to think of him as much more stubborn! (something he would
most certainly debate....)
We share interests in high tech toys and computers. Andy is married to Kelly, who is truly his match! (Stubborn vs Stubborn....)
Kelly just graduated from Nursing School and passed her Alabama State Boards in the summer of 2008. Atta Girl, Kelly!!
Mom will point out that she now has 4 nurses in the family.

Andy and David are in business together. They got together and opened up a car dealership, in Alabama. Our Father and Grandfather had done this many years earlier, but the business had been sold by the time my Brothers were old enough to be interested in it. If you want a great deal on a Chrysler product, you can check out their web site at Anderson Brothers
My Sister Chris' Family
"Baby" sister Chris is 12 yrs younger than I am. So when I was graduating high school, Chris was starting first grade. She was a little confused about our relationship early on......she thought she had 2 "Mothers"! (and she taught me a whole lot about childcare!) Poor Chris! Even though we were 12 years apart, she still inherited some of her big sister's hand-me-downs. Like my clarinet for band, my batons, and my love for medicine. She played the clarinet, but traded the batons for a rifle--even marched in the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade. She has a BSN, and today works in an outpatient surgical unit after spending more than a decade as a Labor & Delivery nurse. She tells me that she knew she had "grown up" when she could chat with me in medical terms.
Chris married Lawrence, (whom a very young Sam dubbed "Lowis" because he couldn't say Lawrence), and they have a daughter, Ashley, and son Drew.
