Then and Now

I was looking for something last night and ran across a box of photos I've been meaning to scan for a couple of years now. Started looking through them. Pulled some to scan. Couldn't help myself. Never did find what I was looking for.

Since it's Saturday, and you're bored (you're here, aren't you?), I'm going to force you to look at family photos. Come back here! My kids were cute. Then. In Florida.

Maybelline then:

Probably just instructed to scowl for the camera

Having just shot RediWhip into her mouth

This drop kick dog kept bringing live moles and snakes in through the dog door

With our first Aussie, Clee-o

I made her this dress for her fifth birthday. She wore it clean out.

Maybelline and cousin Katie, the beautiful bride from last spring

Maybelline now:

See what happens when you only let your mother take your photo when you're being stupid? Heh.

Oatmeal Head then:

My, what big eyes you have!

Dapper in his Christmas suit

I was always making him these hats - he loved them

I think this was his first pair of glasses

Oatmeal Head now:


Red Rocks then:

Ornery cuss

This face will melt a mama's heart

Mama made the vest and bow tie

Mama's little stinker

Red Rocks now:

Some are just a mix:

Relaxing on a sunny Florida day

They loved this little dune buggy

Nothing like a good saber fight

That was a good Christmas

I love photos. I need to finish that scanning job. Y'all have a great weekend!

Until I write again ...

I love that you shared photos from your album. Gorgeous fun kids. Then and now. I can see the life and the joy in them. And, Lady! you can sew! Have a good one and keep the kids.

Those pictures are great - and priceless memories of those "little" kiddos who are not quite so little now! Plus - you are quite the talented seamstress, Flea!

These are wonderful! I love the one on the VW bug. Stop by Compost Happens when you get a chance; I gave you an award.

Flea, these are wonderful. I love the Christmas group shot and the one of them on the bug! Happy Saturday.

Then and now was fun.....I would tune in to see it weekly. I'm just sayin'.

Hope you find what you are looking for.

I LOVED your pictures! They were great - and most of them, well, they looked happy! Ha! You are so talented with all your sewing - I used to sew for my kids but life changes and you gotta go to work full time and it's easier buying Halloween costumes 50% off and giving them as "dress ups" for Christmas. He! He!

Great review of some fun moments. I can absolutely get lost in photos from the past. Cute!
