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 1973

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.

This is a picture my sister and I (we are the ones on the far right), and our close friends growing up. I'm the one wearing the funky plaid outfit, and my sister looks like she is on cloud 9!

Our dads were in the Navy together, and we all moved from Moffett Field to San Jose at the same time. Their mom used to babysit us up until I was around 7 years old. We were really close, and used to sleep over their house. I still remember when we were living in Moffett Field (Naval Housing), and their older brother would always pick on us. Typical! We're still in touch through Facebook, and I'm so thankful for that.

That's one good thing about the service, you get to meet a lot of friends from places to places. A salute to your dad for the services rendered!

Couldn't get a holiday photo since we don't have a scanner so I am sharing grade school photos again.

You have on the coolest plaid pants! They are so 70s!

My Husbands family did a very similar thing. I think Filipino families are so special that way. Everyone is sooo close!

Happy Friday Photo Flashback!! wooo hoo!! I finally made it back.

Big hugs

Is it funny that I got excited by reading the words, Christmas 1973? There is something about the older photos that makes me happy. I know there don't even hold a candle to all things digital, but pics of our youth are pretty great.

Loved this!
