FRIDAY PHOTO FLASHBACK

I started "Friday Photo Flashback" because I have so many pictures from my PRE-digital camera days. I thought it would be fun to scan them and share them here with you. I'm having so much fun doing this, that I would love for you to join me, too! So dig out the photo albums and put your scanner to good use! Don't forget to sign in to MckLinky so we can all visit and comment on each others blogs!

Christmas 1976

Since it's December, I thought I would do all Christmas Flashbacks! Isn't that fun? I had a hard time picking four of them, but I think I ended up choosing the ones that are very special to me.

I will start off with the token "Santa and me picture." Here is one of me when I was probably around 7 or 8 years old. I wish I could remember the exact year. I'm pretty sure this was taken at the Navy Exchange in Moffett Field. Gotta love Mrs. Claus!

I also have one of my husband, and he looks to be around the same age as I was. Aww..so cute!

Hi Alicia, my first time here.
These are great photos and perfect for the Yuletide season.

That is so funny! You look great the Santa and Mrs. Claus definately look 70's. I really need to dig out some old pictures. I had a Christmas dress with a jingle bell in that jingled when I walked. I loved that dress!

What great photos and you guys look so cute in the photos... I wanted to do Christmas but my sissy's the big 40...so I wanted to celebrate that!

So cool you have all these pictures. I'd love to share my old Santa pics with the kids but knowing them, they'd probably ask why he looks different from the one at the mall ;)

Hi there! I really love your blog and your photos are awesome! I think this MckLinky is such a neat idea. I am going to ask my husband to help me find some photos and scan them for me so I can participate next week. How fun!

I hope you have a wonderfully blessed weekend with your beautiful family.

Mommy, I'm Home said...

Love those -- especially the look on Mrs. Claus' face...

Daphine said...

I am just AMAZED at all the photos you have of you when you were younger. I SO wish that my mom would have cherished picture taking as much as I do...maybe then I would have more than just a hand full of my childhood photos.

Seriously....you have some great photos!

Love these of both you and hubby!

Have a great weekend!
