Dykstra cousins



Being born in the middle of 20 cousins (on one side--26 on the other!) has given me the advantage of remembering them all well--those at the beginning or end of the pack are less likely to have this.
Christmas 1959 has me at the youngest in the photo--the crying one. My sister and I are wearing matching red dresses my mother made. There is one cousin 3 months younger than me not in the picture--she must have been crying even harder.

Oh, fun! I'm going to post some old pictures some day, too. I just have to remember to take the time to dig through some and scan them.

Those *matured* photos are certainly a treasure, aren't they!
