You now what?  I missed y'all last week.  I really, really did.  Even thought I was at the beach and soaking up what sun I could get, I missed you.

So it is good to be back here at the ole Fro Me To You bloggy carnival.

This week I want to introduce you to Big Logan and his Sister Gina, back in the day. ( I so hope Gina doesn't get me for this)  I also want to show you how much Little Logan and Gina's daughter Charis look like there parents.

Here is a nice family shot of my Hubby and his family way back when.

Don't you just love Gina's pink outfit and Logan's little suit vest.    :)


Ok, I am sorry but do y'all see what I see?  I see a good resemblance in a certain Pioneer Woman and my MIL.

Here is another picture of Logan and Gina...


Aren't  they cute!!!  Look at that smile, look at those curls!

Ok now lets look at some pictures of Little Logan and Charis together.

They are just so cute and they are growing up way, way to fast.

Ok I have to throw this picture in.  It is my absolute favorite of Big Logan and Gina.  :)


This just shows the mischief my husband has in him and the mischief he passed down to our son.  They are most definitely like Father, like son.    :)

I have more pictures of where they look so much a like, but I think you get the picture.  :)

For more great stories and blast from the past go visit Kristin over at We are THAT Family

Tammy said...

We missed you last week too!

P.S. He loves you... said...

WOW very simular for sure, glad your up and "at'em again"...! Great pix!

I am going THERE soon. Breaking out the photos of my Husband and his parents. There just aren't any photos of that of my little family. But Bryan's family was normal. Except for the plaid and polyester.



Happy Mommy said...

What great pictures! And your MIL does look like PW! I love those curls!

Steph said...

Love to see pics from the past! Your big guy and little guy look so much alike!

And I see the PW resemblance, too...wonder if she would see it?

Come visit me when you get a chance. I "met" you thru Dawn and wanted to get to know you...


Dawn said...

I think I had the same plaid polyester pantsuit as sweet little sister - mine was in blue, though. Probably from Sears.

I don't have pics of my hubby or his family from when he was little. I wish I did!

Blessings! Dawn

We are THAT Family said...

Wow! The resemblance is uncanny!


Love those clothes and that last picture!

Missed you too, welcome back!

Amy said...

How funny. My husband would kill me if I put old photos of him on here. (of couse I will I'm sure)

bunchofbull-ers! said...

Too cute. I agree that your MIL does resemble PW. That is a great family photo!

Muthering Heights said...

Wow, that is a strong resemblance!

LifeatTheCircus said...

That last pic is awesome... sometimes the non "picture perfect" shots are really the best!
YES, I def see a resemblance!

Razor Family Farms said...

Do you know this Pioneer Woman? I've heard a lot about her on your site.

Anyway, love the pictures! And wanted to thank you for your sweet words of encouragement. I love knowing that when you say you are praying for us -- you really are. That's priceless. You are such a wonderful friend!

Kids do grow up too fast! It's funny, when your kids are young people tell you that all the time, and you don't believe them. And then one day you look at your kids and you realize that all those people are right.
You do have cute kids!

April said...

Oh My goodness, I had no idea how much Gina and Caris look alike. None !! That is crazy.

Well Behaved Krissy said...

HAHAH! That last picture totally cracks me up. LOVE IT. Sorry I've been remiss reading. Forgive me.

marky said...

Wow.. that chip isn't far off the block.
Funny my post today is about those boys growing up way too fast!

D... said...

I love that last photo too! Way too cute. :) Your kids are adorable.

I DID notice a resemblance between your MIL & Pioneer Woman.

Thanks for visiting me!

Gee, Thanks a lot Valarie! I am NOT responsible for the way my mother dressed me. However, those are some of my favorite pictures also- even the one with Logan being Logan. Sure wish my hair was that blonde again (naturally).

Vader's Mom said...

Hehe... Now I really don't see how people used to think I looked like Gina.

And you are so dead on. Those two do look like their parents (and it's funny how many of the personality traits they got too!)

Brandi said...

I had no clue! No clue of ya'll being related! KEWL

Misty said...

These pictures are great! I really am shocked at the resemblance. I also love the look on Gina's face in the last picture. It's a look I've seen a time or two as an adult! ha!
