Sepia Saturday Dolls,dolls, dolls



Sepia Saturday
theme
Dolls with dolls




Two of our dolls with their dolls in 1978.

Yes it ends, up they were practicing.
We have 3 beautiful girl grand dolls and 1 handsome boy grand doll that take up their time these days.
2 in high school and 2 just about ready to leave elementary school.

When our 6 children were growing up it seemed we never had enough money to go around.
But looking at this  Christmas photo it looks like they were pretty happy.

Love does that.
They are so precious.

Oh my, what is nicer than a Christmas morning scene! I always had fun with my dolls, I especially liked to wash and curl their hair. Sometimes it took a couple of days before the curls would take. I had lots of time to wait then I guess. Lovely photo!

they were happy because it wasn't all about the money that made them happy, you are a good mum!
beautiful photos,

The real dolls are those girls, such a sweet photo.

What a delightful Chrsitmas morning photo. Those girls are really happy, those are not fake smiles! Money isn’t everything. I remember one Christmas when my mother had made all my dolls (even the tiny pocket -sized ones) a new dress. That’s love for you, and it’s never forgotten.

Cute pictures. I wish I had some Christmas morning photos of myself. I think my father only took movies on Christmas.

Kristin said...

The daughter in the front looks like you. They look really happy with their new dolls. We had the same situation with our 6 children - lots of kids and not a lot of money but they all turned out none the worse for it.

Yes that daughter does look the most like me. My hubby calls her Little Peg sometimes.

Happy indeed - with all the love in their lives that you both share so freely!

That is a great photo. I don't have many from my childhood. But I do still have my Baby Beans doll from when I was about 5. I left her out in the rain and she couldn't talk anymore. :/

I so agree with your post about being home and doing as you please. Sometimes I think I should be doing something, but when I get home from school every day, I really just want to be home. I am very selfish with my time now.

Hope you are having a great day. Tammy

The girls are delighted with their presents. There is nothing quite like Christmas morning at that age.

Great doll post! I still have my precious Barbie, I only had one in my life, from my grandmother, and she stands proudly still in my living room! Of course I made her a brand new outfit, and she's behind glass....she's something special in my heart!

Peggy I feel for parents today the kids see all this stuff on the net and TV. Christmas has almost lost it's meaning. Say there Gal, you are some beautiful woman. That photo is beautiful. I do not photograph well. I look like different people.
You are lucky to have Grandchildren, they bring such joy..

They look absolutely thrilled. It's a joy to behold.

Alan Burnett said...

Yes it is that look of absolute happiness and joy that shouts out from the photograph. You could never fake that. Joy on a stick!

They look absolutely delighted :-) I spy a Donny & Marie Osmond album! Jo

Teresa Wilson Rogers said...

Look how happy they were! This reminds me of so many Christmases past in my family.

Tattered and Lost said...

Oh my, disco Ken and the Sunshine Family. I don't think I've ever actually seen either of those dolls in real life, just in photos. Fun shot.

TICKLEBEAR said...

You're right, looking at this pic, they do look very happy!! You did what you could, and the best gift remains the love you can instill in them.

Someone must have really had to sacrifice to manage to buy those Barbies! "Super Star Stage Show" Wow!
No wonder they look so happy.
