Measuring Keepsake Update!

Remember the little Measuring Keepsake that I made for Annabelle?  If not, you can read all about that HERE.

Well, in that post I told you guys that my parents had measured my brother and me on a wall in the unfinished part of the basement in the house where I grew up.  My parents moved out of that house about 9 years ago.

Well…my parents were just back on our old block visiting some of their friends and the new owners of our house told my parents that they NEVER painted over our measurements!  Can you believe that!??  Here is the picture for proof…

Not very pretty, but it’s THERE!  Crazy, right?!  They also never painted over this little “mural” that my brother and I painted when I was about 15.

Ha!  It’s so amazing to me that they are both still there.  I guess who really goes out of their way to paint the unfinished part of their basement…but STILL.  Unbelievable, right?!

Just a little walk down memory lane for me that I wanted to share…

  1. Awwwwww! Love this, Kelly!

  2. Ana and Morris promised that they wouldn’t paint over these walls and they didn’t!

  3. I love this idea! i wish I had known about this when my children were young. I am thinking it would make a delightful baby shower gift!

  4. I LOVE that it’s all still there. I love family history.
