    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Adorable!! Love old pictures!! Also love dressing babies like babies. They grow up much too fast to dress them like teenagers when they are still newborns.

    When I worked for a large computer company, I missed the day that pictures were taken to be posted in the computer room. I posted instead the picture of my grandfather holding me dressed like Sunbonnet Sue. Those were the days.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Oh goodness, I have an aunt who always took photos of the family girl children in their bonnets. I had not thought about Sunbonnet Sue when I look at the photos. Thanks for the reminder.

    Love that picture. Back in the day, babies wore bonnets. I know my mother put them on me. And I put one on my daughter. But not sure Moms do that now.

    Precious! I do quite a bit of genealogy and I'm amazed at how many old pictures I have that do not tell who is in the picture and a date. Since you know the people in you picture, please add that to the back with archival pen. You can probably give a pretty accurate date, too. Do you have a membership to ancestry.com or Family Search? You could add it to those sites for others to see.
