Every year after the Holidays, I go on a cleaning spree! Organizing and going through things; deciding what to keep and what to get rid of.  But, I always seem to get sidetracked when I come across old photos and Rick and I start reminiscing.

This past weekend, I came across a box I haven't seen for a long time. Inside was this newspaper and  picture from 1954 when my older brother, sister and I won a photo contest. I was six months old at the time.

Sometimes I think I hang on to way too much "stuff", but I'm so happy I have things like this from my past - I even ran across the dresses we wore in this photo!

That's amazing that you even have the dresses! Adorable photo - beautiful children. That's so cool to have. I think it's not only important to keep stuff like that, but FUN. Can you imagine how boring cleaning would be otherwise:)
