ABC Wednesday - A

A is for me - I am Anne and for April - the month I was born

(this picture is copied from a page in "The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady", a favourite of mine)

Here I am with my twin Aunts. This photo was taken around 1948 when I was 4 and they were 20. Aren't they attractive!

Together again in 2007

and here they are at their 80th birthday party in 2008. Both are still active, happy and healthy.

Thanks to Mrs Denise Nesbitt and the ABC Wednesday team. For more looks at the letter A, please click here.

Enjoyed your post. My mom was a twin and she never really looked like her sister until they both had white hair. Then folks would point at them in their 80's and say...'Oh look, twins'♫♪

Your twin aunts look really lovely ladies and they were very attractive when they were young (in fact, they still are.)

Anne, glad to meet you-I'm Ann without an e.
I love the vintage pic of you and your twin aunts. So neat. The current pic of you and your aunts is so beautiful. So happy they are still active. April is such a pretty month to have a birthday!!!
Happy ABC Wednesday.

Lovely post Anne! Your aunts look so young at heart.

Wanda said...

What great pictures of your Aunts, both when you were little and now. We are very close in age as I was born in 1941.

Love the new picture of the three of you...this is just marvelous. So man nice A's in your post.

Lovely photos and what nice ladies you all seem to be.

Denise said...

Such lovely photos of you all. I also had to smile at the book as I have it in my collection and took it off the bookshelf only a few days ago. It was lovely browsing through it again.
