Recently my dad sent us a few photo cd's and this little gem was amongst them. My daughter at two, making her squinch face.
All these photos got me to thinking that I had a pretty great childhood. Lots of good memories. So, today is a walk down memory lane.
Five things I remember from my childhood.
1. Racing home from school to get chores and homework done in time to watch reruns of Little House on the Prairie. I'm pretty sure I had a crush on Albert, and I thought Almanzo was dreamy.
2. Playing with my sister. We shared a room and each of our twin beds would be come a houseboat, the carpet the ocean, and all our dolls, blankets, and stuffed animals covered the beds.
3. Friday Fright Night. My brother and sister watched horror movies on Friday nights. Those kinds of movies gave me terrible nightmares, so my mom and I would play board games upstairs. One night while we were playing cribbage, we heard footsteps pounding up the stairs. They got so scared at one point they pelted up the stairs, then tried to fly casual, like they weren't scared but were just coming up to see how the game was going.
4. Putting my brother in my dad's swivel recliner and spinning him round and round in it until he got sick. :) It was his idea, honest.
5. Getting a VCR. How cool was that? You could watch movies, stop, play, rewind, fast forward, and whenever you wanted! Remember Be Kind, Rewind stickers on tapes from the video rental store?
How about you, any fun childhood memories?
