THE ROCKING CHAIR STORY
Once upon a time long, long ago (probably the late seventies) Eugene and Anne Carr (Christina's great grandparents) went to a flea market or garage sale and spotted a child's rocking chair. They loved it! So they purchased it and took it home to Allison Park, PA. They decided they would save it and give it to their first born great grandchild.
Cousin Linda CarrDizinno was aware of this plan and she really loved the little chair and decided she would like to earn it. And she became pregnant!
Meanwhile out in California no one knew anything about the chair but Richard and Kathy wanted a child anyhow and were also in the family way. And, lo and behold, their child, Christina, was born about five weeks prior to Linda's baby, Luc Ian. So she won the chair!
Somehow the chair was transported from Pennsylvania to California during the next two or three years and presented to Christina at Christmas and she looked so adorable sitting in it in her red Christmas dress! It's hard to believe she can still fit in the chair. I don't think Luc would.
Perhaps Christina should pass this chair down to her first born great grandchild.
Grandma thank you for sharing the story - I had no idea! Now I know what a treasure it is and will certainly be sure to keep it in the family. :)
I feel so lucky to have won the prize! Wouldn't Gene and Anne (and Linda) get a kick out of the fact that it is still being used (by me no less)! I just rocked Lincoln in it tonight.
Yes that is an awesome story! Winning! I love love love Lincoln dancing to oceans. So good.
Lincoln sure is a great hugger! God has blessed you with 3 awesome boys! And you're giving them such a great youth!
Lincoln is so vocal while playing the drums! Good to hear the rocking chair story again; I had forgotten that we won the prize!(for Christina) And I can't believe Christina still fits in it!! Such handsome boys all ready for church too!
A great photo collection of all the fun things you have done with your family! The dancing is a hoot! Love the science projects, and Memphis with no front teeth! Glad you survived your highway adventure.
