Valentines Box Dinner

A Valentines Memory for me was when I was in 3rd grade or so the Girl Scout group that I was in had a Father/Daughter Box Dinner at Valentines. I remember working on my Valentines Box to put the dinner that my Mom made for us. Mom made her famous fried chicken (my favorite thing Mom made!!) to put in the box so Daddy and I could go to the school and have our dinner. I remember it being a very special night and a great memory. Thanks Mom & Dad!!

Happy Valentines Day Everyone!

Ahhh.....I love this picture. I need to start scanning more pictures. Did you go to several father/daughter events? I seem to remember you and Dad leaving for one but I don't know if I was old enough here to remember or not.

Love you,
PS I like the new look of your blog!

I love the photo and that dinner was fried chicken. Why is it no one's chicken tastes as good as mom's? Happy Day! Beth

What a wonderful memory, and a great picture.

I always wanted to be in Girl Scouts but didn't get the chance.

Thanks for visiting my blog!

Wow! That uniform brings happy memories back from when I was a Brownie. All the oldest could say, was she was glad she wasn't born then, she wouldn't have worn a skirt. Aren't kids funny? Thanks for the memory Sherry!

Hi Sherry,
I wanted to stop by and say hello. I have not been online blogging for weeks. I have lost blog addresses, again, and now have lost my camera with great pictures I want to post online. I love your brownie picture. The socks are great. I have a picture of me in my scout uniform with socks to my knees. That time in scouts was so fun, thanks for sharing your valentine memory.
