FHV/PN!!!!!!

Okay, in honor of my sister Becky joining in on the blogging now, I have decided to initiate her in with this glorious photo. (I really do plan on learning to do the video so I can be FHVN instead of having to add in the P, which stands for photo....duh) For those of you who are not aware of Becky having a blog check it out @ avegasfamilylife.blogspot.com.

Now, there are several great things about this photo. Starting with the most obvious, the picture is of Becky and Tom (sorry to those of you who got excited thinking this was Becky and Chachi). For those of you who knew us growing up, you may have caught on a bit to the fact that these two didn't get along the best. So it therefore is funny to me that the picture is of just the two of them, when there are four other kids to have in the photo. Next, are Becky's white pumps......love them! Finally, we have all the things in the background. I count eleven candlesticks with out a single candle. Then we have the doll. My very talented aunt Liz made us all dolls. Huge, beautiful dolls, with fancy clothes made by my grandmother, I think. I loved these dolls, until Chachi....I mean Tom, made us watch a movie about these dolls that came to life and killed everybody. Then I was terrified of them. I remember once, we were all going to watch a movie together. Tom told us to all run upstairs to get our pajamas and pillows and blankets. When we came downstairs into the family room, the dolls had already taken our spots on the couches. They were waiting for us with steak knifes in their hands. . . . .do..do .....do..do .....do..do ....do..do (that was the twilight zone music)

Thank you Amy for the initiation into the blogging club. FYI-I was very fashionable in my day. White pumps were HOT!
Again, thank you for posting this on the world wide web. It will go down in history never to be lost or forgotten now.

Look how the doll is glaring at Becky and Tom--like she's mad that they're standing on her turf.

It doesn't get much better than that!!

You have the greatest photos. And the commentary for them is even better.

I can hardly make out the picture. The reflection from Beckys glasses is to much to bare

Personally I think Tom looks smokin' hot & I have to say I was always jealous of Becky's clothes...remind me again why?

I love Cha-chi....and big butterfly glasses.

I still get freaked out by the dolls. I once saw a doll wink at me when I was a kid at the Sunset house.

I didn't realize how creepy Hazel's letter were. Hey Ella, I still love you. I am on my way to your house right now...Do you still love me too? Yikes. I think I need to have a talk with her.
