Friday's Favorite Family Fotos!

Remember, the good old days?
There was no recession...
almost everybody was poor.
Life was laid back and easy.
You got to stay home instead 
of going to day care.
We used our imagination instead of 
our thumbs on the remote control.
There wasn't a trouble
in the world...
except when your Mama
called you to come in!

These pictures are of me...
back in the good old days!
Me and my babies
rockin' in my red rocker
on the front porch.
My cousin, Jan, from Seattle, and me...
playing Superman!
Judy and guess who?
Our parents were best friends,
so Judy was like a sister!
We didn't have video games,
but we had Mickey Mouse...
and Humpty Dumpty!
Before automatic sprinklers...
we were the lawn sprinklers!

Hello Malisa, I loved your photos depicting the ways of old. Those were the days when life was simpler. You are the cutest little thing. I loved you in the rocker with your dolls the best. So cute.

Hugs...Jeanne

My friend had that Humpty Dumpty doll. Children don't have the imagination anymore that we had. My children are 20 and 17. They had very good imaginations because they were forced to have one growing up. We did not buy them a lot of things for that reason. I remember being the sprinkler too.

Deborah said...

Yep...those were the good old days and I miss them at times. I try to acquaint my grandchildren with what Grandma did back when she was a little girl...much like what you have pictured. Great pictures! Thank you for sharing.
