Take Me Back Tuesday

A Giveaway Addicted Mommy

June 1975

Yesterday I posted a photo of my daughter, Lily, in a dress I wore as a child. In the photos below I am 19 months old. They were taken by my mom's best friend from childhood. It was a mini photo shoot.

August 25th, 1970

Today is my mom's birthday! Happy Birthday MOM!! I Love you and hope you have a great day!! These photos are of my mom in 1970 on her 17th birthday. My parents are newlyweds in these photos. They got married on month before these were taken. In the photo below, my mom's grandmother, my aunt and my mom.My father, mother and my 2 aunts are in the photo below. BTW...the screen behind my father's head is the one I blogged about here. Happy Birthday Mom!!

I love you!

Great photos! It's neat when you can share something from your childhood and capture it in a picture the way you did with this dress.

These are great pictures! I love that little dress you have on! So cute! And I think I had a chair just like that only white when I was about that age! LOL!

How neat that your mom saved that special little dress. It is amazing that it has stayed so white and beautiful through the years. I just love looking at old photos of my mom and dad when they were dating and in their early years of marriage. I will be pulling them all out to share in a little over a year as they celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary!

Thanks for sharing this with us. It was fun!

What great pictures and great memories! It is so nice that you could pass the dress on to your daughter.

That dress is darling, on both you and her. And you know what? I can see where Lily gets that smile. Both you and your mom have such radiant smiles.
It's no wonder you had such a little cutie pie.

Oh. And did I tell you? I haven't been so excited about a potty chair and poopie since mine were that age. I found it very odd that I was cheering for you and Lily about the whole potty affair. Odd but true.

Cheers to everybody!
