Girls with sippy cups
I didn't even think to look at the back of this photo. If the photographer is who I think it is, it would most certainly have the date on the back. My guess is fall of '89 or spring of '90 -- that's my niece and Ai, I'm guessing 2-going-on-3, with a 4-going-on-5 Kt in the middle. They are wearing their matching Hanna Andersson dresses -- red and purple striped knit, each worn to within an inch of its life. Absolutely loved as was every single one of the very few pieces of HA clothing my grrs ever had -- had to save a few dimes to buy 'em, but they were great clothes!
The photo is on the fridge at my sister's where the grrs all got together for a sleep-over on Friday night. It was my BIL's idea to recreate it. We did our very best, right down to Ai wearing mittens! Now, they're 18-going-on-19 and 20-going-on-oh-my-god-it-cannot-be-21. We had a lot of fun doing this and it makes me think of other favorite old photos we could recreate -- like Mdd and my nephews, one of them with bright red lipstick. Okay, maybe not that one. I also recalled a book that was a project for Wisconsin's sesquicentennial, Wisconsin Then and Now. Looks like fun.
I am wearing my only pair of hand-knit, wooly socks today -- my toes are nice and toasty! I'm making progress on the second pair, though, having turned the heel on the first of the pair last night. Oh, I love it -- both the sock and the process! The new pair are a much finer gauge and I'm anxious to wear them. It is Socktober, you know; go tell Lolly that you want to sign up! I'm lonely there in the "V" section, won't someone join me -- how about socks, Vicki?
