We raised 4 children and they were always dressed nice. When the grandkids came along, I bought a used toy box, and each week I would go to tag sales and buy toys, sterilize them and put in the box. When the kids came over, the first place they went was to the toy box. Life is what you make it.

We started with two electric skillets: a small one and a large one. I used them for all of our cooking for several months before we could afford a stove. I was so grateful that I could make two things at once! I'd almost forgotten about those days. Thanks for bringing back the memory.
