Friday Photo Flashback

Well, I didn't forget, but I really wasn't prepared for it, so I'm place catch-up. It is Friday Photo Flashback time. Alicia asks us to head back to our pre-digital camera days and find photos to share.

In honor of Fall and because I'm feeling nostalgic, I'm going to go back into the not-too-distant past...our first months in the Pacific Northwest. We took the kids pumpkin picking (and didn't swelter in 100+ heat...it was actually fun!). Charming didn't want to go with us...he was already becoming "too old" for "kid stuff". Still these pictures show me just how much time has already gone by, even though it has only been four years. (Seriously: Buttercup still had her baby teeth when we moved here!)
Buttercup always picked "cute" pumpkins. Doesn't she have that, "Please, Mommy, can we keep it?" look on her face in this one?


Have I mentioned that I love where I live? Truly, I feel so blessed to have landed here.

Isn't it amazing how much of a difference just a couple of years make when you have kids. They change so much it's unbelievable. Love her face in the pic...bet she got that pumpkin :)

Sheila said...

Oh, with a face like that, I'd be in trouble - always giving her whatever it was she wanted!

Thanks...it does make you realize just how much time has passed when you look at pictures like this. As for Buttercup, we've struggled not to spoil her. She's our baby of the family and a little girl after two boys. The temptation began when I first started shopping for her clothes!

Great looking family. I love the name: Buttercup! Sweetness! Is that your husband, I thought it was: Tom Cruise. Just kidding.

I love going to the pumpkin patch with Fig, but lets face it, it is so much more fun with kids around. I can feel the fall air nipping at the kids as they pick their favorites, and Buttercup has definitely perfected "the look" by this point.

Sue said...
