The old photo today is three sisters that are my cousins.
Bernice, Beatrice ( Petie) and Diana. This must have been taken about 1948 or maybe 1949. My Aunt Senia must have sewn the dresses and fixed their hair. In 1949 Bernice would have been 8, Petie 5 and Diana 4.
Last Sunday we had our annual family picnic. There were two weddings in the family last weekend so many family members were out of the area. Those of us that showed up had a great potluck meal and enjoyed all the good company of many cousins gathered.
Four of the Aunts were there, Aunt Lila, Aunt Violet, Aunt Grace and Aunt Anna. Aunt Senia did not come from the nursing home.
We drew names for a few gifts. Our quilt theme this year was patriotic. I did the square that is embroidered with the angel that says God Bless America.

We did not consult with each other about what we were doing in our square..as always it turned out real pretty. Cousin Diana won this year. She is the littlest girl in that old photo. She was pleased. That would be cousin Marsha and cousin Kim’s feet:)
