You Are Too Kind

Thank you to everyone for the kind comments on my last post and for referring it to others. You made my day!

And so for you a special treat……..

Lynnae 9yrs old

Little Lynnae at her 9th Birthday Party, July 1976.

My mom wanted to help me learn to sew, and this is the dress we made together. I selected the fabric myself. The pinafore is covered with George Washington portraits. The blue and white shirt displays United States icons like the liberty bell and Paul Revere, along with important dates in U.S. history. (Maybe the battle of New Orleans was among them, hmm?). The flag cake is by my grandma. Now tell me, could I have turned out any different?


  1. Awww! I think you look kind of like Jordan in this picture.

  2. "Could I have turned out any different?" That depends on whether or not the next picture shows a Washington clad nine year old maniacally stabbing at the flag cake with a 12 inch kitchen knife while screaming, "Happy Birthday you evil imperialist swine!"

  3. I loved that dress! I didn't know you helped make it!
    The cake is so cool. Now I know why you are so patriotic and well informed.
    I am trying to catch up! BTW- I loved haveing that last post to read and re-read and refer friends to.
    Well done.
