Family Tradition

I'm working on scrapbook pages for both Ian and Annaliese's baby albums incorporating these pictures, but I thought I'd share on here, too.  When I was growing up, my maternal grandparents owned a general store in their hometown.  It was tradition when a grandchild was born, to be weighed on the scale the scale in the store.  I continued on the tradition with both Ian and Annaliese, though for them the scale is now located in my grandma's basement as the store has closed.
