Good genes: Two generations of hot mamas

Jen Peters sent over not one but two incredible matriarchal masterpieces. She also curated them for us:

"'Grandma Portrait'" is my grandma, Mary Peters, looking absolutely gorgeous in front of a faux snowfall. This was before she popped out six kids! Grandma is celebrating her 85th birthday today."

"'Mom Prom'" is my mom, then Barbara Davis, with her prom date, Denny Bray. She was so damn skinny with perfect porcelain skin! (I definitely did not get the skinny genes.) Oh and kicka$$ glasses, too.. Her date, meanwhile, was a total sweetheart -- and still a wonderful man to this day. My mom was diagnosed with Stage IV colon cancer in June and is currently undergoing chemotherapy, so we've been pulling out a lot of old photos lately."
