Pride is Evil...

I was thinking how brave Sher was to share her pregnant with Trisa picture - how utterly confident in herself and without worry that we would ridicule...  because we are all wonderful relatives that appreciate the open, the honest, etc...

and to prove I also have no pride whatsoever, I give you the following:
This lovely photo was shot when I was perhaps 4 years old... I distinctly remember envying my big Sister's train conductor overalls because they were cool...  at least they were cooler than whatever the heck I have on!  I would like to think that these are like Er's pictures of Liv... but no, my uncle is right there next to us which means there was some event at our house (maybe my baby sister's blessing?) so we were apparently dressed up to impress!  Even my shoes are something out of a horror flick.  Of course, my uncles' pants aren't exactly stylin' now are they?  You wouldn't believe that this same guy is now a JAG officer, he's come a long way from the big collar!  At least baby bro. can't be blamed at all, he obviously didn't pick his clothes, but whoever sewed them that way deserves a little ridicule maybe...  

Okay, I'm going to post before I chicken out... ugh

You look just like Haven! And I envy the train conductor overalls as well. But T, being truthful, a picture of you as a cute little kid doesn't quite compare to a pregnancy picture. Does everyone have scanners but me? I want to post some pictures from the olden' days. Wait a sec...big glasses, big hair, big teeth? No thanks, I won't be investing in a scanner anytime soon!

Ditto on the Haven resemblance..holy cow! And Megan's right- there is no reason to be embarrassed about that picture. I want to go back in time too! Maybe I'll have to look through my photos.

I remember this stylin' pantsuit I had when I was 6 that was polyester and plaid and had bell bottoms. I wish I had a picture just for fun. My elementary pictures are a hoot and I know that I picked some of those outfits because I remember. I thought I looked great. I've never thought I needed to be too embarrassed over them since I wouldn't pick them anymore. If I didn't mind then -- why should I now? I liked the picture of you. Kayli says you look like Haven too. There is a resemblance for sure. Very fun post. Meg, maybe I can scan in some pictures of you and Er and post them?

Fun to see Haven in those retro clothes...I wanna see more childhood photos. Those are cute. We'll all have to post some.
That ripe banana color is sure to make a comeback.
