Blast From The Past

Ya'll have probably already noticed this, but I love to take pictures. I'm really not good at it, but I love capturing the memories of my life.

Unfortunately, my Momma doesn't share the same sentiments. In fact, we have a family joke that you have to be dead before my parents will put your picture out. It's true. Our house was filled with photos of great grandparents, uncles aunts and other dead family members. Actually, there was one family picture with all of us in it, but it was one of those "Old Time" photos you get at cheesy tourist attractions. I guess since it looked old, they bent the rule.

Luckily, there are a few family albums with pictures that were taken on disposable cameras. I'm not even lying when I say that we would buy the Wal-Mart two pack (that's like 54 pictures) and it would last at least six months and sometimes a year. Can you please answer why my parents thought disposable cameras were an acceptable form of photography to begin with?

Anyway, I don't have a scanner to upload those high quality family photos. So, I have to rely on old pictures that cousins and friends post on our behalf. Here are a few I randomly came across this week.

This was taken at my sister's send off party for Miss Teen America. If memory serves me correctly that was 2006. That was pretty much the only time in my life that I shared clothes with my sister....hate her skinny butt!

This was taken only one year later at my brother's Senior Night. I'd like to report that Lexington Christian Academy did in fact make it to the state finals that year!!
This last picture was taken when I was three and my sister one. Pretty sure Mom was pregnant again. I think we rocked the sailor theme...haha!

I am so blessed to call my siblings "friends." I'm even more blessed that my hair finally grew out over my ears.

Happy Saturday!!
