When my mom came to visit she bought something very special with her. She brought a dress that she wore in a picture of her and her siblings. In the photo, she is probably a preschooler. I remember her telling the story that she was originally sitting in the chair that is in the photo but the photographer kept putting the hem of the dress in a way she didn’t like above one knee. When the photographer would walk away she would brush it down smooth and then the photographer would try to fix again. Finally Mom was made to stand next to the chair and her sister was placed in the chair. This famous dress has “lived” some years and made it to Arizona.
Mom and I took a few pictures. As you can tell Lexi was not thrilled to be taking pictures, but what a special moment to see a 3rd generation in the dress.
