I SWEAR TO GOD, I STILL HAVE THESE THIGHS!!!


Thought I would share more old photographs...going down memory lane is always fun. Some of these taken in front of the old house bring back memories of summers spent at my grandmothers house. You see my mom and my grandmother on the front porch in this first photo. My favorite aunt (Irene) also lived there back then , while caring for my grandmother ..Memére is what we called our grandmother ...Memére lived in the Saskatchewan prairies...part of the small community of Lac Pelletier..Back in the day, my Pepére (grandfather) had the general store and post office for the region. Memére and Pepére had 15 children...my mother is the youngest. I will try to find some old photos of when my mom was young for future posts if possible..untill then..here are some of me ....


 Me 1.5 yrs old(1964)


My older cousin and I


Above is an cousin of mine and I...again at Memére's house. There were always cat's around..good for hunting prairie mice lol.


Below is one of my favorite photo's of my sister Nicole..isn't she cute!...but then, it's not hard to look cute as u sit next to your older sister (moi) who appears to be choking the life out of a kitten!!!


My sister and me..as I choke a kitten.


I used to sit in my dad's shoes to watch TV


Above...I used to love to sit in my dad's shoes to watch TV...there are more then a few photos of me doing this.


Below..Is a photo of me that apparently won a contest. My mom hadn't entered me in a baby contest but the photographer who took the photo did...I won *Cutest Baby* apparently lol.


YUP...it's me





My mom with my sisters.


Above.... Is my Mom and two sisters...I'm not sure why I'm not in this photo but wanted to include it because for 1,my mom was totally HOT and its easy to see why she is still a lovely lady to this day and 2. my sisters are so cute on here..SO unlike how they are today!!!....KIDDING....not. LOL


Below....Me, trying to sit like a proper young lady with my sisters.


This is me, trying to look mature and my 2 sisters.


Ah the memories...some good, some bad...but they are important parts of me. I was fortunate to have grown up in a small town in the BC Rockies..climbing trees, playing baseball with the boys..building forts in the forest..organizing acorn fights and digging caves in the deep snow...it was often an adventure because we found ways to amuse ourselves...outside, more often then not.


Do my pics from the past remind u of your childhood? Any good stories to share? let me know....




PS..not sure why some of the photos are cut off on the right...can't figure out how to fix it ..so just click directly on the photo to see it properly..thanks.

Moon,
Great photos (but I think you need to adjust either the size of your table as they are sought of... cut off... OR the size of the image as they go back to flickr anyway), and I really love the one with the kittens (and the one of you chocking that lil one! :) )

Here from Michele's this hot Sydney Winter afternoon where it is 28C!!!

Granny Annie said...

Inquiring minds want to know what part of the pictures you left out. The one with you in your father's shoes is the prize winner. It touches my heart. All treasures and thank you for sharing.

Tonight my niece IM'd a picture taken in the 60's of my parents that I don't have. All I thought was so young & good looking.

I love old pictures...they are becoming a commodity!!!

Great photos Monette! You were cute as a button back then and you still are today. Great to see your sisters too! Keep them coming! I like these Blasts from the past. - James Sinclair (oh yeah,,your Mom was HOT)

I love your old photos -- so adorable. I especially like the one of you in your dad's shoes. Why is it that little kids love to wear grownups' shoes? I remember doing it when I was a kid -- I'd put on my dad's shoes to go out and check the mail. (I grew up in the country, and the mailbox was down at the end of the driveway.) And my niece, who is 2, loves to try on everybody's shoes when she goes to grandma's house -- my mom has a pair of old peach-colored bridesmaid shoes that my niece particularly adores. :)
