Ain't She Sweet?

In going through the old pictures the other day, I ran across this picture of a cute little girl, Carol Charlene, with her leggings (I guess that is what she has on), a furry coat, and great doll buggy and big doll! And in the big buggy next to her is her cousin, Harry Arthur Pearce (Hap). I probably was somewhere around 3 1/2 years old. This was taken in front of the house we lived in on West Lake in Peoria Heights. Don't recall having many toys as an older child since the depression had a profound effect on my parents - as it did on so very many people. However, I was the first grandchild near my grandparents so probably was doted upon. (Is that correct grammar?) (Click to enlarge)

Moccasins are the best!
