Blast from the Past

One of my lifelong friends posted a couple of OLD embarrassing pictures on facebook today, so I figured I might as well embarrass myself even more and share them with the wonderful land of blog. And since I'm already embarrassing myself, I figured I would throw in a few extra pictures. 

My cousin Adam and me at my grandparents house. I have no idea what we were doing, but it doesn't look like we were happy about our picture being taken. 

Me beating up on Adam. Adam and I are 8 months apart and grew up very close to each other. I used to beat up on him until he got bigger than me and my uncle told him to hit me back if I hit him. Then he would get in trouble, because I would cry because he hit me. Yep, I was a little brat! 

  Yes, this is MY dad giving me champagne on New Years Eve. 

Mom, dad and me

  My cousins and me with our grandparents

My cousins and me helping my dad blow out his candles

And here are the two lovely pictures my friend, Adrienne, posted on my facebook wall. 

  I'm in the front row, 3rd from the left. This was our Daisy Kindergarten picture. We had a local Daisy skating party where all the surrounding towns Daisy troops got together. I was skating along and somehow fell down (I was only 5 or 6, my skating skills weren't that good) and a fat kid used my arm as a speed bump. Apparently, I screamed bloody murder!! A trip to the ER, found that my arm was broken. 

I'm on the far right in the front row. Check out that rockin hair! I guess if I ever want my hair to have body, I just need a short cut with an awesome perm. 

Don't you just love looking at old pictures? I might just spend my day going through old photo albums! 
Happy Thursday!
