Ice Skating is Nice skating but Don't skate where the Ice is Thin...my dad used to sing this song to me when I was little. I dug this skating costume out of my mom's cedar chest a year too late for Lauren, but I got her to try it on and model it for me. My sister Sue Marchand (a fabulous artist in Livermore California by the way) made this for me when I was 10 years old. Sue made a lot of my clothes for special occasions when I was little. I remember sitting next to Sue on Saturday afternoons catching scraps and threads for her. She was an inspiration for me and still is today.
