Cherry Pie

Here is my mom about 6 years old. She is so cute, a bit devilish. I just love those round glasses. She is the third of five children. She was given the same name as her mother and called by her middle name, Cherry (a family last name). This was such a perfect name for a redhead and unusual as well.
Cherry Pie is what her mother called her, and we do , too, sometimes. And let me say she did make the best home~made cherry pies!
