We are taking the day off so our mom can post something super embarrassing. We have to blame our furiend, Spitty‘s, mom, Mary, as she’s the one who gave our mom the idea. Mom Mary posted an Easter photo of a friend and herself from their childhood.

Though this post is about our mom, we kitties agreed to do the writing.

Mom always says that she sees her life through photographs. The one she is sharing she sees everyday. It is in the family/friend photo gallery in our foyer.

When Mom was growing up, her paternal grandmother was the photographer for the family. If she didn’t attend an event, no photos were taken. Whenever Mom was staying with her grandparents, which was often everyday, she would spend hours looking at her grandma’s photo albums. If an event occurred for which there were no photos, Mom says that it seems as if it never really happened.

Without further blathering or setting the scene, here is the photo as it would have looked in Mom’s grandmother’s album.




This was Mom and her sister, Judy. The photo was taken on Easter in 1953 when Mom was four and her sister almost eleven. What do you think of those matching dresses? As far as our mom remembers, it was the only time they were ever dressed alike.

With their age difference, Mom and her sister were never very close until they were well into adulthood, and by that time Mom was living in Virginia while her sister remained in California. Judy died several years ago…so now Mom remembers their lives through photographs.

We are posting this today as we will be joining Athena and Marie‘s Caturday Art Blog Hop on Saturday and hosting our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop on Easter Sunday.

We also are joining Create With Joy’s Friendship Friday Blog Hop.
