Friday Photo Flashback


Alicia hosts this weekly carnival called Friday Photo Flashback. It's when we all scan our old photos and share them with each other. Since I love looking back through old photos this is perfect for me. Head over to Alicia's blog at More than Words and check out everyones pictures.


This picture is from when I was around 11 or so. My mom will kill me for posting this picture of her :) Love you! We were camping for the weekend which we actually used to do quite often. I used to think it was the most boring thing in the entire world...there would be nothing to do and my parents would sit around and read books all weekend...what I would give to have one of those weekends again! Geez....check out my hair...it's absolutely BRUTAL! The dog was my life as a child. His name was Midnight and he was a toy poodle....I got him when I was 5 years old...well he was technically a family dog but he loved me the most :) I absolutely cherished this dog!!! He died when I was 21 and it was honestly like losing a parent. I miss him each and every single day!!!!

Stephanie, that is such a neat memory photo...isn't it funny how we took for granted the fun things our parents tried to do for us and now we wish we could go back and enjoy them! :) And the hair! :)
Blessings!

Oh my gosh! I would've been SO jealous of those curls!!

I have pictures from my early days when I looked just like your twin....no kidding! I'm not sure I would have enjoyed camping with the parents reading books all day either. At least the doggy kept you occupied.

I had a dog from my childhood until I was 21 also...she had to be put down. :(

Gosh, Lucas looks just like you in that picture! I used to go camping all the time while growing up and loved it! Now that we are married we have only been once! Oh well!

Somehow I missed your whole pool story so I went through your archives and read the whole accident post. OMG, we have an inground pool and I know that I am paranoid but you have confirmed why I should be. We were out there with my father in law today and he kept trying to tell me about a book he was reading and I know I was rude but Maci Clare didn't have a life jacket on and I would not take my eyes off of her. So now you just confirmed my rudeness. My heart goes out to you because I think about that too and nothing has ever really happened to one of my kids like that. It is hard to watch all of your kids when you have 4 and especially when you are at a pool party and there is a lot of people. I'm praying for you to have some peace. Just feel blessed that God spared Caleb. Because it could've been a lot worse. There was definitely angels watching over him.

Oh my gosh...your oldest son looks just like you!!!!! I literally thought it was him! Not that you looked like a boy, but you know what I mean!! Wow!!!!!

Isn't it funny how we appreciate things now when we're older. Now it makes sense when our parents used to tell us that! LOL!

And, oh my gosh, I would totally miss my puppy every day too!!!

Thanks for sharing, Steph!

I can definitely relate in the camping and hair department. We went camping so much when I was a little girl and I think I'm scarred for life because I have no desire whatsoever to go camping again. My Hubby gets so mad at me because he is totally outdoorsy. And about the hair, I look back at pics and wonder, What the heck was I thinking???
