Fun Monday

Erik at The Electronic Firefly is hosting Fun Monday. This Fun Monday, bloggers are posting the cutest pictures ever. You really should go check them out! head over to Erik's for a complete list.

I had though that I had missed the boat... then wasn't going to do it since I had already posted pictures last week.
But I was reading Robin's post and she said it wasn't to late...

What the heck? I'm sitting here miserable with a chest cold and nothing better to do. Oh, I have laundry to do... but I said better. :O)

Here are some of my favorite pictures of me as an ankle biter...

Enjoying raisins, my favorite treat...Which I hate now. 1 year.
Sitting with my great-grandpa, who loved me despite being a beaner. ;O) Unlike his wife, my great-grandmother. She was from the south, what can I tell ya. I loved this man so much, I have only fond memories. I don't remember the dog though. 1 /12 years old

A picture of me while I stayed with my mother's parents in California, because my mother was indisposed. *cough funny farm cough* I still smile like that, though I have more chins now.* I don't know if you have heard this or not, but rumor has it that I am a ginourmous goofball, and as you can see... I started at a young age* 3yrs

Me and my Anti Yvonne who took care of me while my older brother and I lived with the grandparents.:O)
Isn't she gorgeous? Hey , am I being a goofball in that picture? Outstanding! 3 yrs
I'm pretty sure I was rockin' the bell bottoms.

This is a picture of me, still living in California with the grand-nuts. My Grandma worked at the Head Start, which is like preschool I think. She took this photo. 3-4 years old


And last but not least, this is my favorite picture of me and my dad. Though he became my dad when I was about 6 or 7, he never treated me like I wasn't his. He is one of the few bright spots from my childhood.
When he wore his horn rimmed military issue glasses, I thought he looked like Clark Kent, and secretly I thought my mother was dating Superman. :D Well, he was my Superman... so there you have it.
Miss you dad! 12 years old

Oh, what a precious, beautiful child you were! These pictures were wonderful! I love your smile - it lights up your whole face! Somethin' tells me you're the life of the party ;)

sometimes there isn't much a person can say about a post except... aaawwwww. (with a grandmommy grin with it)

DK said...

I swear, you have the coolest pictures! All of my childhood shots are of some chubby, miopic kid who always looked extreeeemely stressed!
So sorry to hear you are still feeling puny; I understand - the lousy cedars are pollenating and they do a number on me every single day! I'm taking my 5 perscription meds and counting the days until Spring! Hang in there, little Sister...

I love that b&w photo the best - great lighting, and fantastic smile on you!

Every girl needs a daddy. Glad you had one. I still miss mine, and he's been gone since 1986. Sigh.

Great pictures and I totally dig the retro clothes.

Karianne said...

My word, what a head of hair! I was bald until I was 2 or so the story goes. What a doll

Awww Mert - love the B&W, hat wearing, tea party picture. It's adorable.

Hope you are feeling better soon.

I may need you to give me an intro to photoshop sometime as I venture out into unchartered waters!

You are so cute in the picture with the hat and the one with your dad. Hang on to the good memories, let them warm your heart. The picture of the two of us is sweet also, we're a pretty good looking pair.
Love you Lots,
Anti Yvonne
