To Do Tuesday

I've been working out my scanner today, baby! I scanned the last 300 photos from my mom and dad's photo albums. I was actually thinking last night, "ugh, what to do for the to do" and then Chanel posted an old picture and I thought, "Hmm, I should get those albums back to mom after 2 years or more of stashing them." So, thanks for inspiring me (again) Chanel! I think total pictures I have scanned from my childhood and of our extended family is about 400-ish. Anyhow, here's a few of my faves from today's work.

This one must have been taken one evening since the boys are all in their pjs. We were probably watching The Simpsons or something like that. This is pretty much how I remember my "little" brothers, so it's kinda trippy to have them all grown up. Plus, it was probably rare that I was home at this point. This is circa 1993. (PS. I owned that sweater for YEARS. It was one of my faves.)

How do you not love this one? There's a family shot of all of us taken before this, so I am sure this one was done in jest and mockery. I know, what? Our family mock and jest? Such a surprise.

This is a picture of my 19th birthday. I had just gone to Salt Lake with my friends, and it was the first time Tyler and I had been apart since we got together. I missed him like crazy and while I was excited about my lemon cake (my fave) I was more excited to go make out with Tyler. This night was the first time I said "I love you" to Tyler. And yes, I wore overalls when I said it.
This is (obviously) my sister and myself at my wedding. This is before she got all splotchy from crying. Notice my big football helmet hair? I HATED my hair!
This is at Erin's wedding a month later. And I love this dress. And I love Nate's famous butt cut he was sporting. Sweet, huh!
Anyhow, just a glimpse at the pics. Good productive day, but you should see my house. Holy kids run wild while I ignored them and scanned pictures.

Dude! Michael looks just like Brevin except for the pouty brows!

Erin said...

I'm with ya, Stac. Totally Brevin! And make David's face a little bit more round and you've got AUSTIN there too! Crazy.

Beth said...

I'm not sure I can see the Brevin/Michael look alike. I think Dave & Austin do look alike, especially in the eyes. As far as you older kids, to me, you haven't changed all that much. Put some big glasses on and time has stood still. Except Nathan. You've changed.

It's funny b/c I knew you better in this time of your life than I do now. I can't believe it's been that long. It was good to see you again. (:

Ahh, the scanning project! I undertook that huge task a few years back for my whole family. I spend months on it and did over 7,000 pics! Then I burned them on DVD for each family. Such a project, but so glad I did it!

Liesl said...

suprise!:) ok so I'm getting more excited about this blogging thing. I love the old pics though, classic. I think we need to bring back some of those styles next time I see you and your sis.

Love your walk down memory lane. I've been thinking I should take on a scanning project. It seems so overwhelming but so worth it! Good for you!
