Take a Walk with Me...

down memory lane that is. My little sister posted these pictures on facebook for the whole world to see and I thought I'd share them with you here. Yes, please feel free to LAUGH (at my clothes, my hair, my teeth), CRY (at my once natural platinum blonde hair) or SMILE (as you remember just how silly you looked when you were 6 years old).

Me, Dirk, and Kelli at Yellowstone. I am donning my favorite cabbage patch doll shirt with REAL yarn hair.

Me in all my Easter morning glory. I am gnawing on a giant piece of candy. According to my little sister Kelli, this is the "best picture" of me ever. I sure hope not.

Halloween: I am a sorceress. I think this is the closest I ever came to being anything slightly scary for Halloween. I was such a girly girl when I was little.

Another Easter picture. How much more frilly could my dress possibly get?

Kelli and me on her birthday. I loved Aladdin just about as much as she did, so you can only imagine how excited I was for her to get that doll. I remember telling my mom, "I will never get sick of watching Aladdin." I watched it every day for a year.

I had to save the best picture for last. When I say the best, I really mean the best "ugly" picture of all. You can't beat leather boots with scrunchy socks, glasses with ONE bifocal lens (to keep my lazy eye from being so darn lazy), a hideous primary colors bag, and baggy shorts with my shirt tucked in.
And, there ladies and gentleman, you have me in all my glory...well, almost. Heaven forbid Kelli Jo ever get a hold of my even uglier junior high years.

You weren't ugly at all- I always thought you were rather pretty! Even in your younger years, you were cute! And I love your outfit in the last picture- that was totally the style then, eh? At least you didn't have the awful side-part bangs like I did. I think I'm going to take a walk as well on my blog! Miss ya lots and think Jonah is a doll!

LOL... I LOVED THESE! I just went through a huge box of pictures I found in my Mom's garage - I swear, we could have been sisters! :)

I loved your update about Christmas, and I love these pictures. Although they sure make me feel old. Paul and I were dating at BYU when Aladdin came out. Yikes!
I can't wait to see a GIRL Lowe baby. She will be so cute!

So fun! I can "see you" the most in the picture with aladdin. Do you still watch it everyday? You have been gorgeous your whole life!
