Memory Lane

Ok folk, I haven't had much originallity in me the last couple of day. Jennifer over at Sob'ah My Soul posted some pictures of herself growing up and I thought you might like to see how precious I was at one time too.

This picture of me and my brother was taken when I was taken when i was about 10 months.
Look at those big brown eyes! I was two and a half.

I remember when this picture was taken right before I was four. It was a Friday night at Walmart and a black man (the first one I ever saw) was taking the pictures. He was nice but I was a little nervous and was chewing on my bottom lip. I was shocked that he asked me why I chewing on my lip because I didn't think he knew!

This picture was taken about 6 months later at my grandma's house. Do you like my PINK POODLE PANTS?!?!? The red barn wasn't my grandmothers but I still think of her when I see red barns.

After the 6th grade graduation there was a party at the college. I don't remember how much each picture cost, but Kristi and I spent a lot of time in front of that camera. I really really liked polka dots and my mom made a lot of my clothes that year.
About a year later I was the victim of a bad perm (well... you couldn't really see it in the last picture but I had a bad perm then too). This was at least 7th grade because that's when I got the metal mouth. Remember when it was cool to wear just one strap of overalls? I don't really miss that style.

Flash forward to highschool. I think this was senior year. Haley and I have been friends for 12 years now and inseperable in high school.

Ok, another flash forward to age 19. My family tells me this was my skinny year. Probably because I lived on my own and couldn't afford to eat what I wanted. The beautiful little girl is my neice Allie.

Beautiful brown eyes, indeed! Did you have your daddy wrapped around your little finger? If not, he must have been immune to the puppy dog eyes.

Boy, you haven't changed much! Still cute-cute-cute!

Leslee said...

Aren't you two the sweetest friends a girl could have?

Yes Mum, I'm afraid that I'll never "change". My mother still has people recognize her from elementary school. I'm sure I'd have people recognize me too if I still lived close to the town I grew up in.

Leslee, you are beautiful! Thanks for sharing a wee bit of your 'growing up' years. I always enjoy stepping back and looking at pics of friends.

Lots of similarities between you and Chevelle, especially when you were much younger.

How cute!! That blonde hair didn't last long, did it?

Thanks for sharing. Maybe I'll have to dig out some old pics of my brothers and I.

Leslee said...

Yes Cindy, we'd love to see pictures of ya'll growing up! The kids too.

Hi Leslee, I came over from Jennifer's blog. Looks like you had a very fun childhood. I posted my photos this morning.
