This page was made for this weeks Jumpstart Challenge 10. It is also for the CT guest spot.


The journaling is:
It is Christmas morning 1945 . . . the war has just ended and money is tight at our house. Mother and Daddy have a new little baby girl, a decorated cedar tree and some wonderful toys from Santa Claus.
And, I am that lucky little baby!
I still have the little cloth doll that was under that tree . . . it is pretty worn and dirty, but still a treasure when I think of how pretty it looked under our tree that first Christmas so many years ago.
It was my 1st Christmas . . .
It was my 1st baby doll . . .
It was the 1st of many happy times to come.


The hand written block of text was penned by my daddy in the scrapbook he made for me when I was a small child. I love that he loved doing this for my scrapbook. The doll, I found in the attic of my childhood home after the deaths of my parents.
