Look at that baby!

This was taken when she was just a baby and we were babysitting her while her mommy worked. It is a joy to watch her grow up.  I am so thankful to live near enough to see her on a regular basis.

The first part/verse of this song make me think of watching her growing up...it has the words if you want to read along with them.  They will be some of our best memories...

I was reading this post  of over at Enjoying Life Wherever We Are and it got me to thinking about prices we remember.  She remembered buying a loaf of bread for 25 cents.  I don't remember that...we seldom bought a loaf of bread.

What I remember is paying 29 cents for a gallon of gas...and I remember there being nickel and dime bags of chips.  And I think there were nickel and dime candy bars.  And I remember when a 16 ounce bottle of Pepsi was a dime.  And the first Barbie doll I remember noticing the price on was $2.97.  We could get a hot dog with no chili sauce for a dime, or pay 15 cents and get it with chili sauce.  And they were sooooo good.

What are the prices you remember that have changed drastically?  We were married in 1976 and I think we usually paid around $0.99 for a pound of hamburger, but I am not sure.  Does anyone remember that price?  I hope everyone has things they remember...
