These keepsakes are very special to me. As a result they are put up in a closet, except for the hourglass toy, because I don't want them ruined.
This lamb was made for me by my Great Grandma. I'm not sure exactly when I received it, but I have photos of me, pre-brother, with it. I've kept the lamb in many different places, but not with the kids, it's up in a closet so there are no stains and no losing it.
I'm not really sure if the bear was made for me, or my brother. It was also made by my Great Grandma, and I remember playing with it all the time at my Grandma Sarah's house.
This Fisher Price Hourglass toy is another that I remember playing with at my Grandma's house. It was many things to us as we used our imagination.
I remember that house and my room (it was my mom and aunts room) there so well. I have the bedcover that was on the bed. We own the picture that hung above the bed. I have a crib (in storage) that looks similar to one that sat in the corner before my brother's and my crib went there. Something about childhood is so fresh. I miss that house, and that room. I'll always have these toys and so many of my Grandma Sarah's things to remind me of childhood.
