It's a crazy week. Pardon the photo-heavy posts.
I feel that this one is entertaining, though.
So, let me introduce you to me as a baby and toddler.
(I'm not sure I'm ready to allow you see me as an 8-15-year-old. :)
So this is a badly scanned photo. Still, my favorite part is that I'm in the bottom 1/4 of the photo. Right next to the orange bowl.
And, that's me. Eating.
Or, as Lila says, "That's Vivi."
Several things to note in this photo besides the obvious.
1.) The light blue paneling and floral walls that were in our dining room.
2.) The fact that my potty chair is leaning up against a metal grate/olive green oven.
3.) The fact that I'm locked in my potty chair.
4.) The blue/green, ocean-themed shag carpeting.
All of this is so fantastic. This is so 1980.
And there's me.
Riding shotgun (?) in the family van. (More pics of said van below.)
In this one I totally see Vivi.
And a great pumpkin and a fabulously classy fake fireplace.
I'm wearing a Chinese style-outfit, hair forced into pig tails and what I assume is my mother's bra.
Clearly I was quirky from the get.
This one ALSO makes me smile.
This would be my cousin and I posing under a rather imposing potted plant at my cousin's wedding reception.
That's me posing in the doorway of our SHAG carpeted van.
Yes, shag carpeted. It also had FOUR captain's chairs, a square table with u-shaped bench seat and an 8-track player that BLARED Anne Murray.
This is one of my favorite pictures ever.
My cousin Amy and I (both 2 years old) are clearly VERY confident that our elder cousin, Adam, (who is 4) could TOTALLY help us in any dangerous pool situation we may encounter.
(We're standing on the deck of my Grandma's above-ground pool.)
Look at Adam's face.
And finally, here's me chillin' at Cedar Point on the Earth Orbitter like, "Hey, yo? I got this. Look at my body language. I know this spaceship isn't go anywhere. And if it was? I could handle it. I got time, I got time..."
Look at my face. Insane.
Please, if I ever wonder where my girls get their attitude... remind me of the earth orbiter-4.
