Childhood Photos and Memories


Last year I took an album from my parents' home that had childhood photos of me. My plan was to scan them all and then give the album back to my parents. Well, I've only scanned a few but have the goal to finish them all before Thanksgiving :) 
I don't have a ton of photos of me from my childhood but enough to evoke some wonderful memories. One of those precious memories is all of the pretty dresses my mom would sew for us. She made amazing creations. I love being able to tie these memories into photos. And hope to record more childhood memories as I scan and print the rest of my photos.

What are some of your favorite photos and memories from your childhood? Be sure to record them in your journal or album.

My mom was cleaning up last year, and told us to go get the photos we wanted, I went and took tons of photos she was getting ready to throw away.
