My how she's grown!

I was browsing through some pictures that my sister Shaina had uploaded from my mom's picture horde. We used to not be able to touch the chest that had all of our pictures in it, as my mom didnt' want them lost, or taken, or put out of order. Well, since it was off limits, browsing through the pictures when mom wasn't looking became the thing to do. Especially looking for pictures you were in. One thing my mom had done was a school picture of all the kids each year. I'm sure it was quite a cost to get yearly pictures, for 10 kids, but I'm so glad she did because it is alot of fun to look at yourself and siblings through the years. We went even before we were in school. My sister spent the time uploading alot of pictures so they could be preserved, and a few Christmas' ago she gave us all a power point presentation of old family pictures, and the rest on a disc. It's been really great to have. I hope we can get the rest onto disc format so they can be preserved. Anyway, here are my school pictures, though I think there might be a year or two missing. Hope you enjoy the seeing the process of me growing up (please excuse the awkward years.... we all go through them!)





My Senior picture... taken by my dad: Simply Photography

Another picture taken by my dad, as part of his photography business, in Manito Park. This was done instead of at school.



I don't think I knew it was school pictures day in this one.


Love the side bangs...













I hadn't grown into my front teeth yet...




Snaggle tooth :)




Oh man, I think this picture is so typical for an 80's picture: The experimentation with the double image, and of course, bangs that never stop.











I think this might be my favorite.









The original coloring was awful in this picture. It looked like the picture was dropped in carrot juice. Or that my blanket, and I were both extremely jaundiced. It is so much better in black & white. I must have been stressed in this picture. I'm so glad for the advancements of picture clarity!

I'm glad we all know what we looked like when we were younger too. Pictures should be shared.

I like the snaggle tooth! There is quite a difference when you grow into your teeth! I love the awkward years! I totally dig the never ending bangs and mostly the roll of bangs.

Wow, only two of those pictures I can remember you looking like. That's actually a cool idea. I will have to dig through my photos that my mom gave me and do that sometime. Really cool idea.

Oh Man! Those are some pretty awesome pictures! Especially the one's with the bangs that never stop!! Total Classic! The 80s were a great time, weren't they?! Cute pics. That made me smile! Thanks! ;)

You looked yellow because I fed you alot of carrots and squash as first vegitables and it turned you yellow. All that caratene I guess. You should have better eye sight!
