Nanas dolls
         My Nana always loved making things for my mom when she was little. She made things like dolls, bags and other things that were made with cheap materials because they didnt have alot of money in Mexico. With that being said, my mom still had lots of fun even if her family was poor. She had friends all over her block and they all played games together and wouldnt go home till the sun set. Even when my mom migrated to the united states she still had my Nanas dolls with her to remember her and hopefully bring her to the United States. My mom told me stories of her childhood and how her life was over there while showing me stuff that she brought with her when she migrated. Sadly my Nana passed away almost 2 years ago and wasnt able how the US was like. But im gratefull that i was able to meet her after i had seen those things and will never forget how important she is to me and my mom.
