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!

1976-1977

I know for A FACT that I was around 7 years old at the time. Yes, that is me in that hideous outfit with the Pippy Longstocking hairstyle! Mom...for reals???

This was our old house in San Jose, and the two people on the left were our new neighbors. I'm pretty sure her husband was the one taking the picture, and that is her father standing next to her.

Our parents became good friends, and also became mutual friends with a huge group of people. In fact, I've kept in touch with her baby in her tummy! She is now 34 years old!!

Ok, your parents may have been way cooler than mine. We were always dressed in the tackiest (i mean way worse than pippy) looking stuff! This is cute to me!

Isn't cool how you and the baby still keep in touch 34 years later? You don't hear about friendship that extends over such a long period of time.
