Thursday Challenge—"joyful" (#2)

My kids on Christmas Day 1984, 
holding the one gift they really, really
wanted and were so happy to receive—from 
my mother.  I never did completely understand
 appeal of those Cabbage Patch Kids.

  1. I feel downright archaic when I realize that some of them are old enough now to have their own grandpatch kids.

    Your daughters certainly didn’t go for the twins look. A striking sisterhood of individuality.

    The so-desired gifts may have long passed along, but L & K will always have the remembrance of them having been given on that joyful Christmas day nearly 32 years ago.

  2. Oh, the cabbage patch dolls. Was it marketing?


Thanks, merci, grazie, danke, hvala, gracias, spasibo, shukran, dhanyavaad, salamat, arigato, and muito obrigado for your much-appreciated comments.
