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

That is me, making the ever so popular peace sign.

I had to be around 7 years old at the time.

There is my sister on the far left, my uncle, my dad's sister, my mom with the kerchief, and my little cousin on the right. When we were younger, it seemed like we spent alot of time with our cousins. This was at our house that we lived in till my parents divorced in 1979, and from then on, we hardly ever saw my cousins on my dad's side.

And look at all that liquor in the background! Honestly, I don't even remember my parents drinking. I'm sure it was for entertaining when we had company. They had lots of friends, and it was always fun when people were over.

Good times...

The liquor cracks me up! My parents used to have quite the collection, too. Must've been the thing-to-do back then!

You and your sister look so much alike in this picture, probably more than any I've seen so far. Must be the hair, ;)

You have such cool old photos. All of ours look like someone was being attacked while taking the picture: all blurry, out of focused, off center and, just weird! Thanks for sharing and linking with me. Love it!

Your mom is so beautiful! I can see where you get your looks. :)

Your pics are always such a hoot because I can SO relate to all of it - the clothes, the parents' divorce, the liquor in the background (that I don't remember them drinking!), the peace signs - you name it. GREATTTTT flashback! Peace out, dude ~ :D

Xmas Dolly said...

Thanks for hooking me up, and stopping by too! That was very nice of you. Yes, I was here late last night, but nobody was home so to speak. ~hehe~ So, KNOCK-KNOCK, anybody home? Oh, I see there is. Look at that cutie pie little girl with the peace sign. Well, I've seen a few pictures of you now when you were little, and you sure look like a happy-go-lucky child, and you look like just a bundle of fun! Too sweet! Your Mom is a gorgeous woman! I always thought Asian women were beautiful though. Thanks for sharing. Ditto on the liquer by the way. My Dad's shelf in our linen closet ~lol~ Have a great weekend.

Mommy, I'm Home said...

I hardly know my cousins on my dad's side. We were never aloud to socialize with them. My parents served liquor every time they had company. At Christmas time it was spiked eggnog.

Kelli @ RTSM said...

I seriously love your mom's kerchief! I wish I could pull something like that off! I think stuff like that makes my head look too big:) Your peace sign is too cute too!!

Denise said...

Veronica Lee said...

Your mom is beautiful, Alicia. Love the pic as always.

Sunshine4Life said...

Oh fun times, Alicia! I can relate on feeling the fun when visitors and relatives come over for a visit.

This is a nice photo of you with your family. YOur mom is very beautiful. Is she a Filipino? She looks like a very beautiful Filipina.

I am playing this week -- sorry for lagging far far behind but am trying to cope up with the memes am in...it's just the internet connection at my end is not cooperative at all times. =)
