Fro Me to You - One of these things is not like the other


For all these years I have looked at these next pictures and questioned, why do I have so many of the same picture.  Well low and behold they are different.

Lets take a look shall we.




Further examination reveals the following:




Robin did you take these pictures?

Does anybody remember getting clothes at the Merry-Go-Round?  That is where I got the supercute I.O.U sweatshirt.  It replaced the "Guess" sweatshirt as my favorite.  Does anybody remember I.O.U?  I also remember that on that right sleeve, was red spray paint from a science project.  I was so mad about that.

Next week hopefully I will have been able to raid the pictures at my Momma's house.  Momma go pull the boxes out.  Everybody say Hi to my Momma, she reads my blog and every now and again she might just comment.  Anyway I have just about gone through all my pictures here.  I know sad isn't it.

For more walks down memory lane go visit Kristen over at We are THAT family, you wont be sorry.  :)





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

Hello momma to Valerie Lea
your doing a great job of raising her...yes still doing as they say a mother's job is never done.
And I believe it, as I'm still up at this hour while everyone sleeps finishing important stuff like house cleaning and blogging of course ;D

It's like those games we used to play on Highlights magazine. Find 5 things different in this picture! LOL

jennifer said...

AWWWWWWW times three! Y'all were both so cute!!!

No, I never had IOU, but i was not as hip as you were. Did you ever wear Units?


The Southern Mom said...

"Hi!" to Valarie's mom!

I've got lots of those pictures, too. I think mine are because we got a Cannon and hubby thought he was a professional, click, click!

Woman said...

I am not artistic, but Yes I am crafty. I will post some pics of stenciling in my girls' bedroom soon.

Robin said...

Hi mama

Yes I do believe I took those photos, because back then I was the professional photographer simply because I was always around. I do remember the IOU sweatshirt because you didn't want me to wear it.

We are THAT Family said...

That's funny! I have the same thing! I go back and look and there are small differences. Why do I save every try?

Blissful Nikki said...

dont you just love memories? lol

Lori @ Front Porch Legacy said...

Oh, I had the cutest pink "Guess" sweatshirt with the ankle bluejeans and scrunchie in my hair. Total 80's!

Ashley said...

I have been itching to scan in all of our old photos so that we have them forever - before time ages them anymore. I need to do this soon. Plus, I can have a really fun post like this!

Hmmm, I think Jessie and Sweet Pea must have the same modeling coach...

Rhea said...

It's so fun to go through old pictures. Cute stuff! said...

What darling pictures! I never would have noticed the hand covering the "I" in I.O.U. -- cute!


Jerralea said...

I have lots of pictures like these too. I also used to be addicted to buying doubles of everything, too, so I'd have like 6 of every pose.

Thanks for dropping by my blog. Enjoy the hugs while you can. You can't get a public hug after age 12 - but sometimes I can still get kid-hugs at home whem no one's looking!

Tammy said...

Yes, I remember Merry-Go-Round. My momma wouldn't let me go in there?! So, no I don't remember the IOU label. I do remember Guess and how I owned NOTHING with those words on it.

Hi, Valarie's momma.....please get us some good photos of our friend for next week! ;-)

Leigh said...

Oh, I remember merry go round!!

Kimmie said...

Oh that was fun! I loved the pictures. :-) I remember the Merry Go Round Store! It was great and had the coolest clothes, it was pretty expensive though. I could only get one thing at a time way back then. ;-) One great sweatshirt was better than three not so great ones! I am still that way. Quality, not Quantity!

MAMA (MAWMAW) said...

Hi Val, Was that the baby quilt I made for Jessie, turned to the wrong side? And tell Jerralea I tried to get a hug from Jim, when I dropped him off at school one day, but there was no way of that happening. (He's 13) And come to think of it, that is probably not the quilt I made. I think it was floral on the back.

Valarie said...

Yes mamma that is the baby quilt you made Jessie. :)
