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!

1978-ish


This is a picture of me (left) with my mom and my sister. I was around 9 years old. You can hardly see it, but I'm holding a lollipop in my left hand, and I remember rubbing it on my lips so they could turn red! I wanted it to look like I was wearing lipstick! I also loved that tank top I was wearing. And it's so funny how kids always make peace signs in pictures!

Happy FF, Alicia!

haha! I did that too! And it sure looks like it worked on you. Actually my favorite tootsie roll pop was the red ones for this very purpose...but running a close second was the chocolate flavored tootsie roll pop, but that didnt give the desired lipstick look :o)

Blessings & Aloha!
(thank you for stopping by and I'm so glad to link up)

Sunshine4Life said...

Wow red lips! You are so cute, Alicia and i smiled seeing the peace sign because i just realized kids love to that even long time ago. It's still an "in" in the generation of young people today.

Happy weekend, Alicia!

Stacy said...

I do like the colorful tank! I enjoying looking back on your pics!

Dani Joy said...

Amazing! your mom looks like she is a sister and not your mom. I mean, she looks so young! and I thought you were the one on the right. LOL. I got all mixed up.

I know my boys make those signs too. we told them though to becareful not to make gang signs. scary thought. We live so detatched from all that but will be going to the States soon. getting ready. ;)

What a great memory this picture must be for you.

jen@odbt said...

I did the same thing with lollipops and the peace sign is a given at that age, right?

Kimberly said...

You really do have the best pictures and memories. I enjoy reliving those with you. :)

Michelle Ioapo A'etonu said...

that's so cute. man, i need to go home so i can grab older pics like these. love the tank top too. it's funny how those are still in style ;)

Darcie said...

I am lovin' the colors in your shirt and on your lips too! ;-) Is that not the funniest thing, seeing the peace sign. I don't ever remember doing it, but my kids do it all the time too.

When I was posting for Kaleb's birthday I realized I totally skipped one of your questions. So sorry. The one about which kids are the most like me and which ones aren't. In all honestly...they are all pretty well evened out. Sorry about that. :-)

amanda said...

love the 'lipstick' idea. i remember doing that as well!! and that tank top is super cute!

He & Me + 3 said...

Too cute and yes, kids always give the peace sign to be cute.

Kelli @ RTSM said...

You are just too cute...and I love that shirt! And how awesome is that brown leather chair! I love it!

Momisodes said...

You are too cute! I love that you used the lollipop for the lipstick effect :) I remember doing the same!

Carin said...

That is way to cute about rubbing the lolli pop to turn your lips red, did we all do that? Great stories you always have with your flashbacks!

Lauren said...

Susie said...

I love when we get to look back at your life:-)

Denise said...

You were the cutest sweetie.

Nina said...

What a great picture. Funny that you remember the lips story. I guess somethings just stay with us.

myletterstoemily said...

ha! so cute. love the red lipstick.

Savvy Gal said...

You are adorable. : )

Pam said...

Too cute about the sucker. I think it's funny how kids always make rabbit ears in photos.

Daphine said...

I can definitely see the red lips girlfriend! I'm so jealous of you in a good way... you have so many pictures of you when you were a little girl! Unfortunately, I don't have very many of me at all!

Miss you lady!

Have a great weekend!

Ruth said...

Great picture. My three oldest girls are always flashing a peace sign in photos. I don't understand how it continues year after year, but none the less it goes on. We just had a request for a peace sign birthday party theme?

Muthering Heights said...

Your "lipstick" looks great! I like this picture of you...your outfit is so cute! :)

Laurencita said...

you are so cute...yes, my children before and my granddaughters now use to do that with their lollipops. lol!

Whimsical Creations said...
