They Are So Cute!

Because I have about a bazillion things to do today I figured that I would spend a great deal of time looking at pictures. I can procrastinate with the best of them I tell you. So, I thought I would show you a few of my favorite pictures from when my progeny were little. There are way too many to show you in one post, you might go running for the hills so this will just be a first installment I am sure.

NOOOOOOO, don't go away!!! It won't be that bad I promise.

Ride 'em cowboy!
Cartoon Girl and TEO (The Engaged One) made these one year at Vacation Bible School. They used them so much over the next few years that the poor ponies just fell apart.

Pouty Face TEO.
Who knows what the problem was but I just love her little round face and quivery lip.

Cartoon Girl talking (not a surprise there). She came out talking or so I am told. I don't know because they had given me happy medicine before slicing me open so all the world was rosy.

One Christmas morning I stumbled out of our bedroom, needing coffee and needing to get the coffee cake in the oven and what did I find? Cartoon Girl at the top of the stairs, totally asleep but with her clock in view so that she wouldn't miss anything. The kid didn't even have a pillow.

Poor TEO! Who had the audacity to put her in the laundry hamper? Can't you just hear her whining to get out.

I just love this picture. What you can't see is that the guinea pig had it's ears back and wasn't too happy to be closely inspected.

Hello Easter! Don't I look so cute in my little hat!
I believe that this is the last time that Cartoon Girl ever voluntarily wore something that was pink.

Every child needs a plastic moustache don't you think?

Shoe Queen at her entertaining best. She was a happy baby.

It is just amazing what you can do with empty Cool Whip containers and a few scarves. I am not quite sure what the look was that they were going for but......this might not have been it.

Cartoon Girl and TEO in a more loving moment. At least that is what it looks like anyways.

And here they are today, all growed up.


  1. Oh my gosh, I LOVE the Christmas morning photo!!!

  2. Those are precious! My favorite is the cool whip containers/scarves ensemble. Ooh lala! What lovely ladies they grew up to be also. -Tammy

  3. I think my favorites are the ponies, the Christmas morning and the Easter!

  4. Hey, now! There are no pictures of me on here! I resent that, mother.

  5. Benny: Meg and I can't help it if we were cuter than you :D

    And hey I did wear something pink after that! I had that pink sweater that I wore once in Jr. High. And I still have Pentecost the stick horse. I think he's in my closet.

    I like looking at pictures of me when I was a kid. I was so cute. I don't know what happened.

  6. Look again Shoe Queen, there's one of you "at your entertaining best." But don't you know that parents stop taking pictures after the second child? (Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.)

  7. Dooooh! I loved this post! What cutie-patoots!

  8. Shoe Queen I have PLENTY of pictures of you when you are, I mean were, little! Don't worry, I will be pulling them out at intervals. Luke needs to see them afterall.
