Melody has tagged me to reveal the sixth photo in the sixth folder on my computer.
My sixth folder comes from 2004. When I hear that number it seems like it was very recent, not too long ago at all. However, when I see the photo I realise how much time has passed since it was taken.
Here is the photo:
It was taken in the middle of our backyard at the height of winter – hence Declan’s jumper. Ashleigh is 14 years old, Declan is four and Chelsea is three. Ashleigh is painting their faces, just for fun. There must be someone, probably my Pete, with a tennis ball off to the left hand side because Thomas is looking very alert in the background.
Ashy is the most amazing cousin. She is so good to the little ones and they adore her. Later in the day she indulgently allowed this to happen:
What do the painting skills of a three year old get you? Nothing pretty!
Later in the day Ashleigh made a cake. The little ones all love it when Ashy bakes. In fact, they all expect to find some home baked goodness every time they visit. On that day Chelsea and Declan had a treat even better than home baking…
I don’t believe there is anything better than sitting on the front step with one of the beaters to lick. You don’t have to be a kid to think that is great!
Thanks, Melody. This was fun. If I had been blogging in 2004 I probably would have used these photos to write a post. I need to tag others now, so if you are reading this and have not completed this meme, then it is yours. Please let me know in the comments if you plan to do it too, so I can come to visit and see your photo.
