Why don't they leave me alone? I have no time for photo shoots. There are more important things on my mind. 

Shiela Stewart:
This is back when I was sweet and innocent. And then I grew up! Muhahahahahaha!!

First, I always liked cars better than Barbie.  Second, can you tell that Mom always cut my hair, and I hated it? When we lived in Winchester, the neighbors actually had to explain to friends once that the screaming coming from our backyard wasn't because I was dying  - it was just Rich (my mom) cutting Vanessa's hair.

From a very young age, Wendy Burke was destined to be full of hot air.

This was umm... 1965 or so.
Looks like I managed to water everything -- except the dilapidated plant which is crying out for some... water!
That’s what I call precision splashing, it takes a lot of practice!

Could have been that one of you getting your hair foiled, Colleen. At least this one was cute!

Yes, my daughter looks a lot like I did as a kid. Freckles and all.

Dang it, now everyone knows my REAL hair color.....oops.

Okay...about the Bozo the Clown shoes - I am a Cali-born girl. I know it's hard to believe, given my Yankee attitude. But yes, I was born in SoCal. And that was my first EVER experience with snow. My Mom put my grandfather's boots on me. You can imagine that I was fine while standing upright but as soon as I took even one step...I face-planted. Note how funny my mother thought that was?

Loving the pictures, ladies. Wonderful reminders of the past, aren't they? Of course, they're also great fodder for snickers!

Silke said...

Be glad Val resisted the "Potty Pic" I sent her. :P

Valerie Mann said...

Silke, they were all adorable. But the one in the "bath" tub was just so cute...that's not to say the one of you on the potty wasn't, but, well, you know...LOL
