This photo is so special to me because it was taken on my first Christmas at my Auntie Leanne’s house in Koroit. I was wearing a present that my auntie got me for Christmas.
In this photo I was only just two and a half months old. The person lying next to me is my sister Tayla. Tayla was only three and a half years old. Tayla and I were lying down on a big white curved pillow. This photo was taken eleven years ago in 1999.
When I look at this photo I think I mustn’t have known was really going on. But I think Tayla must have felt happy and excited about Christmas. In the photo I was wearing a Christmas present from my auntie. The dress was a pastel pink with a white frilled collar and a floral pattern frill at the bottom the bottom frill had a curved edge on it. My sister is wearing a pink top with a little pink bow on the top. Her skirt is black with strawberries on it. Tayla always would wear this around to places.
When I got the dress my mum, nanna and my two aunties went to put it on me when it was on they put me and on a pillow. My sister just snuck in which makes me laugh because the first time she snuck in she got in trouble but after that they let her in.
Some things I like about this photo most are how small Tayla and I look and that it was taken on my first Christmas. The photo was taken by my mum, it was also taken by my nanna and my two aunties all by different cameras.
