Pink Saturday and Wonderful Memories

My favorite Christmas memories are the plays that we (myself with my siblings) performed every Christmas Eve for my Mom and Dad. My oldest sister would write the play and direct us. We often started in the summer and would make costumes out of any available materials and old clothes. I blogged about this play before and I thought it would great for Pink Saturday because of my costume ( and the bunny)! In this scene my brother is trying to steal the flowers from Spring. I love looking at all these pictures so much and remembering such wonderful times! My mom had all the Christmas pictures in one album and I scanned them on to CD's for everyone in the family. Thanks Beverly for letting us share another special time with each other during this holiday season!!



Today is also this little girl's 2nd Birthday. Rachael and Georgia have moved back home with us and while we're still figuring out where to put everything, the upside is seeing this adorable face more often!! She's so grown up and talks all the time. So much has happened in the last two years but we love having her around to brighten up our world!!

Oh my gosh, what wonderful fun you must have had! My dc all loved to dress up and perform plays when they were little. I never did that growing up, but it sounds like awesome fun. Thanks for sharing!

What a fun Christmas picture! I wish all of our Christmas pictures were in one spot so I could get them all scanned. What a treat!

Happy Birthday to that adorable little Georgia!

I like looking through old pictures too :-) I don't remember the moment/situation when it was taken but it's fun looking through them. Your Mom must be one organizer to have kept all those photos. And you guys are cute! :-) LIttle girls are adorable, well so are boys too. I just wonder, what your brother thinks of his costume now that he's all grown up :-)
