Family Home Video/Photo Night...or Day...

First of all, I have lookinh forward to this ever since Jenny announced it. Second of all, I expect ALL of you to be participating in it! It was a tough choice to start, but here are this weeks winning photos.

You are all probably looking at this picture and wondering why I cut off the top of my parents heads. (It is my mom and dad) This picture was in my parents scrap book exactly as it is on this post. Someone took this picture cutting off the top of their heads, then my mom and dad paid to have it developed. It wasn't really their fault though because they had no way of knowing their heads would be cut off. But then they took the extra step of actually putting it in the album, in it's own spot. I did not find this picture hidden behind a picture, it was in it's own personal sleave. I don't know, maybe mom thought her egg nog looked especially nice that year. Or maybe that watch she was wearing was special to her. All I know is that it was a picture worth saving, and so I scanned it so that I can save it also.
This is another one of my fave's. It looks like Becky is our mom. I think this was the time we lost Sherod at Disneyland (he is the one strangling his little sister in the dress). It isn't as good as the one with all of us in matching outfits, but that is for another time. Please note that I am wearing my very favorite pair of overalls, and Erin was wearing my other favorite pair of "patchwork" pants. I specifically recall being envious of my cousin Emily's lavender shorts outfit. And it is no wonder, she still looks cute in them. If you look close enough, you can see a girl with a ponytail in the background wearing a pair of Tom's shorts. But I love this picture the most, because I loved going to Disneyland, and I especially loved it when we went with our cousins. My favorite memory was going once when I was about 16 or 17 and we were there with the Waite's. My Sister Erin and I, and two of my cousins, Tim and Sherod, went off riding the rides together. We had many exciting adventures that day. . . oh the memories.

Well that is it for this weeks Family Home Video/Photo Night/Day. Next week I'll shoot for some video. Or, I'll shoot some video for next week. Endless possibilities!

That was part of the "many adventures" I was talking about. Who can remember another?

The eggnog stoled the show in that first one. I'm printed that out as I type this. I think it's suitable for framing.

I remember getting lost at Disneyland every time I went (as a kid). Your Dad would yell at me every time (for getting lost) he found me. He would also make it a point that there were "crazies" in the park waiting in the dark to get me. I still managed to get lost.

I do remember spitting off the cable cars. I wish I could remember more. Did we make the Haunted Mansion chairs stop by trying to get out in the middle of the ride?

FYI. I look just like my boy Jack in that picture. Keep up the old school pics and videos. I love them.

We saw Evander Holyfield, Tim made a big deal about it. Evander's posse got very annoyed with us. We were waiting inline in the Auto-Topia.....does none of this ring a bell? I think it was most noted in my head, because I was suprised at how short (at least compared to me) he was.

Thanks for the post.I think I actually look really cute in that picture. I will play along nest week. I promise!

Loved the pictures and your commentary!! You gave me a good laugh for the day!

I do remember Holyfield. I remember Anna's old boyfriend Mark telling him (in the Autopia line) that "he was a hero" of his.
