A Smile

I have been working on getting all of my photos loaded back into my computer. Finally they are there..where they belong..well not exactly how they were before..but getting there. Some of them make me smile. Today as March goes out like a Lion..a stormy, snowy Lion..I need a smile.

Spring 1994, Prom, my youngest daughter (East Side) is all dressed up, we are on the lawn at the school taking photographs. We are there just before the Grand March, my sister Julie, and my niece Toots (she has another name..but I have always called her Toots) and my nephew Jacob are there with us.

As I am snapping away with my camera, I feel a tug at my pants leg, a little voice is repeating "Auntie, Auntie" as the tugging continues. Toots who is not yet three years old, wants my attention. I bend lower, as she wrings her hands together like an old woman would, her head is bent down, her eyes looking at the ground, her little hands busy wringing….she has something to say. "Auntie could… Auntie could… could you take my picture with the princess?"

Of course I could..so here it is a memory captured. Toots will be going to her own Senior Prom this year..how time flies…:)

    Lovely Princess and little Sweetheart! Is the other picture on the blog opening the Straight River???
    We are getting about 12 inches of snow so far…wonder what this will do to the RR in about a week? It is ugly here and worse in F-M I am sure.

    That’s a sweet picture. East Side made a very beautiful Princess as I am sure “Toots” will too this year.

    Jacob wanted to know why everyone was getting married… how strange it must have seen to a four year old… One of my favorites, I must admit.
