Friday Photo Flashback



Well it's Friday and it's time for
Friday Photo Flashbacks.

That's where we take our pre-digital pictures, scan them...
and show them off. It's a fun meme Alicia started...

Well I've gone back to December 29, 1972... (date on the picture)

The days after Christmas were always a great time in our family.

My dad was a civilian employee then and would take the two weeks off.

His brothers (the one from the old fisherman's post) would come down

and hang and eat at our house.

Here we are...

My cousin Lessa, myself Lorrie, and my little sister LaMonica
(scary...she's taller than me know)
Her mother (my aunt) couldn't care for her so they asked around the family for someone to take this cute little girl.
We were only three months apart and at first it looked like she was going to be adopted by our family...but my mom got pregnant with my sister so she ended up with my aunt who didn't have any children yet.

When she was 12...things were rocky at home and she lived with us for a while.

It wasn't the same since we were all so different then...
but every year at family reunions...

we'd all come back and hang just like sisters...the three L's.

For more fun check out More than Words.

AWw! What a sweet story about your cousin!! I remember picking up right where we left off when it came to our cousins.

I love all your outfits too. Looks like something I'd put on my youngest. Tights and riding boots! Love it!

Oh my, I love those boots! Three beautiful Roses!

I dug out my high school memories hehehe.

Also, I would like to ask a small favor if you could. We entered our daughter into a smile contest. If you could please cast a vote for her, it would be so much of a help!

To cast your vote, please go to this link. Please look for Jillian Rylie Cottrill. Thank you very much for your help!
