HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY
There are very few pictures of my family together. I believe there is just one picture of all six of us taken after I was married. It is the only photo I know of with all of my siblings and with Mom and Dad. This one must have been taken around Christmas 1955. Cindi looks to be about one and a half. Dad still has a bit of hair. Gosh, do I remember the pretty dresses that we got each Christmas. I can tell you the colors and feel of most of them. The dots were raised on the navy skirt and the top was a crisp white crinkly fabric. There is red piping around the collar and the red sash tied in the back.
I think this must have been taken in 1952 at Easter time. I remember that purse. It had a navy velvet ribbon that went down the middle of the purse. The top of the purse was like a hat or lid with a hole in the middle of it for the ribbon. As I recall the braided straw was woven in circles. Maybe this was not Easter as us girls do not have gloves on. I loved that purse. Mom looks so stylish. She was and still is a lovely lady.
