All my life I have been told about the Tom Thumb wedding in our family. My Aunt Helen was a participant. I was rummaging through some old photos and came across this picture. My aunt is the little girl the 2nd from the left. I was surprised at the elaborate costumes that the children wore. I can imagine all the moms making these little creations out of fancy laces, curtains, and maybe even old clothing. I know how little girls love to dress up in their Mom's clothes and play make believe. Can you imagine how excited some of these little ones were to be all dressed up... well, maybe not the boys so much. Look at their faces....some of them don't look too happy.
