There is nothing more charming than images of childhood. I have always harbored a love of those depicting innocence. Be they actual photographs or artists' renditions, they are captivating.

Childhood, catching
our imagination when it
is fresh and tender,
never lets go of us.
- J.B. Priestly

My daughter 24 years ago.

Your daughter, what a nice little bottom! So sweet and beautiful Miss Maddie! It's so hard to believe you have a daughter 24! But that is because I don't have any children.
You are lucky!

So true, Susan. Your dolly girl was adorable, of course!

I have a collection of the old photos of babies.

J.B. Priestly was a favorite of mine!

Yes... the images of childhood and the joy and wonder of life as seen through the young (and young of heart)are precious... for that is what melted the ice sliver in the snow queen's heart...

Your daughter is so cute! Is that a bumper sticker she is wearing???
