In 2014, I will be participating in #tbt courtesy of the Epson Expression Premium XP-810 Small–in–One printer, the ultimate choice for scanning and printing. Ultra powerful and ultra slim, it produces stunning borderless photos and documents quickly and affordably. Featuring the ultimate in wireless printing, the XP-810 makes it easier than ever to print from your iPad, iPhone, tablet or smartphone, whether in your home or out and about.
Well, it looks like we’re back to the friend’s house with the snazzy carpet. Did we visit every weekend, and take pictures every time? Because a large portion of my childhood photos have their groovy home as the backdrop. Regardless, here I am looking less than pleased… and I can only guess why.
Was it because my brother and I were dressed up in matching outfits? It’s hard to miss the tidal wave of orange and brown. (Why my mom got a pass from the pumpkin-and-potato combination, I do not know.)
Were the orange socks – not quite knee highs, but not quite ankle socks either – cutting off my circulation? Doubtful, as my scrawny little legs looked comfortable enough dangling from the chair.
Or was it simply because we were at the same damned friend’s house for the 42nd weekend in a row? Jeez folks! Let’s take a break!
Whatever the cause, I donned my grumpiest of faces and stoically refused to smile for the camera.
Say cheese? I don’t think so.
I know this is a little off, but I really love those stools/chairs you and your brother are sitting on! Haha. And you both still look adorable (even is you are dressed pumpkin and potato-esque)
I love them too Jaime! Love the wicker, and the craftsmanship was probably fabulous back then!
Chandra Christine O'Connor
you are still adorable,
Thank you Chandra :)
Soooo cute! LOL
Thank you Darrah :)
Judy C (Judy Cowan)
Still very cute, even with a grumpy face!
Hahaha thanks Judy!
Those wee eyes of yours were chalk full of attitude lol
Weren’t they? I feel like I was staring someone down!
:) Can you believe I’m the same age now as she was when this photo was taken?
Just too funny, you crack me up Lena !
It could also be because they were taking another photo of you LOL I know when I was growing up, every “visit” to a relatives house became a photo shoot, and I was thinking like “enough with the pictures, just let me go play” LOL
You know what Flora? I think you might be correct!
You two are super cute, grumpy or not! I have tons of pictures of me looking grumpy both as a kid and recently! :)
:) Glad it wasn’t just me!
grumpy cat has competition
Oooh… I think he does!
Miss Grumpy face, you still look very cute!!
Hahaha thanks Marissa!
You look so cute!
cute #tbt – gotta love those orange socks!
I know! I almost want a pair now!
Awwwww you still look so cute! Love these vintage photos. More of them please!
Will do Sarah!
I don’t think that’s a grumpy face… it looks more like you are reflecting on where you would rather be, lol
Perhaps!! Probably wanted to run off and play rather than posing!
you still look adorable grumpy face and all, and I like your dress you look like a little doll!
Thank you Lynda!
lol !! You’re still such a sweetie even looking like a little sourpuss :)
Aw, thanks Darlene!
Cute pic, looks just like Zoogie (Reid)
I know, he is a carbon copy of me for sure!
That’s your grumpy face?? You still look sweet!
I’m sure I could go grumpier… :)
Nice picture. All three of you look good. I love your dress.
Thank you Cheryl!
Hahaha, don’t worry, I’ve pulled the exact expression while at Disneyland and refusing to smile while my photo was taken with Beauty and the Beast.
Oh no! Hahaha that must be a great photo!
