Memories in pictures...

I thought it would be nice to share a few pictures of my mom when she was in her 20's and when we were a young family.



Mom at age 24. I'm pretty sure this picture was taken at the Lake of the Ozarks.

This picture was taken in the late 1950's. Every year mom made us a new Easter outfit and we got new Easter bonnots. (I'm on the very end)


Mom made this dress for me. I was the miniature something (lol I can't remember the word) at my Aunt's coronation. She made one identical to it for my aunt. I cannot begin to imagine making one such dress, much less two!


A fun moment with mom. That is me learning to walk.


Mom and dad in 1947.
I LOVE YOU MOM!

Those are such wonderful pictures Punkn. Your mother had a huge, beautiful smile. Those clothes and bonnets she made for you and yours must of taken considerable talent. She passed a good measure of that talent along to someone I know that does embroidery. :)

Love the photos. Your Mom and Dad looked so happy. Lovely family too I might add and I also picked you out of that photo but I don't know if it was the eyes or the smile.
