Blast from my childhood

My mom found this recently and sent it to me. I drew these as a thank you when I was 5 or 6 for some clothes my grandmother had sent. A flood had hit her area and there was a lot of damage, including to a clothing store that was filled with mud. They sold the clothes at a huge discount, so my grandmother bought several for her grandkids. She had to soak them in several tubs of water to loosen the mud. She didn't want to use her nice washing machine, so they brought out the old Maytag Wringer clothes washer and washed them several times. When they were finally clean, they were really nice clothes.
