Was I Ever That Young?


My cousin sent this picture to me today. She had run across it and thought I'd like to have it. She's right. According to the information written on the back, this was taken at my parents' home in May 1983. I would have just turned 25 and Darrell was 28. Shana would have been 5 1/2, Holly 3 1/2, Clayton 23 months, and Lauren 7 months. WOW! No wonder I was so tired all the time. And stayed so skinny. Who would have had time to eat! And look at all that hair! It was actually dark brown, though it looks black. What a cute little family we were!

I was such an ugly baby!

I don't know how you did it--four kids under the age of 5! You are one amazing woman and mother.

Super cute couple! We all now have a tiny glimpse into the remnants of your other life! You guys had your priorities straight<3

You were NOT an ugly baby--just looked a little like ET. Dad scanned the picture in, but I think it's too small. I may holler at you to redo it larger.

Be nosy anytime you want--I look at yours, too. I can't imagine what it's like to be the only female in that houseful of males! All our kids look like Darrell, except Holly. She's the only one who has my coloring and features. Darrell used to tease me about how much she resembled the mailman!
