I'm in the process of going through things. I came across some old photos. Here are a couple of my favorites. Can you figure out why?
I was in second grade. Guess I decided to give myself a new "do" for picture day. The funny thing is my mom didn't straighten it out! Can you imagine what the teachers and photographer thought? And look at that grin. I mean, how proud could a little girl be?!?
This is me looking at my Grandma's collection of curios. No wonder I love little knick knacks. I came by it quite honestly. Oh look, my bangs aren't exactly straight in this one either!
My mom was the youngest of nine. My parents lived not too far from my mom's parents and we'd go over there on the weekends for family dinners. I was lucky enough to have plenty of cousins to play with. There was an old chest out in the garage that had sheer curtains. My cousin and I would put them on and wear them as flowing skirts and run around the yard. Meanwhile, my Grandma would be making a feast. Her specialty was pies - any kind of fruit pie. Her crusts were so flaky and perfect!
I also remember the HUGE catfish that my Grandpa would catch. I still love catfish to this day. My Grandpa worked in the oil fields and had a tip of one of his fingers missing. I would rub that finger like it would grow back! They always had M&Ms for me in the top dresser drawer.
How about you? Do you have any favorite photos of your childhood? What memories do they bring back?
