I have so enjoyed making this little heritage page for the IdeaBooks4U this week. The challenge was to create a layout using an old photograph of yourself. I picked these from the summer of 1947 when I was two years old and visited my aunt & uncle in another town.


Journaling: Mother & Daddy took me to visit with Aunt Jinny & Uncle Paul just after my second birthday. This was the first time that I had been away from home for more than one night when I would stay with Mama & Aunt Velma. I think that I must have had a good time. I know that when I was older, I loved to spend time at their house. This time, I told Aunt Jinny that I was old enough to sleep without my blanket, and cut it up with her scissors. Then when it was time for me to go to bed, I cried and she sat down at her sewing machine and sewed it all back together!
