when I was a child…..

Happy little Shanda!


I used my phone to copy these old pictures of myself while I was at my parent’s house a week ago.  I haven’t seen some of these in years. It’s fun to look back now and then and remember the happy growing up years.


I love the curtains in this one.  My brother David and I used to share bunkbeds, here I am, hanging off the top one being silly.


I loved my Winnie the Pooh.  It had a music box in it.


Perhaps it was Christmas time, or my birthday.  I look very pleased with my new doll and cradle.


I remember how thrilled I was to receive this shirt in the mail from my Great Grandma.  She made it for my birthday.  When I was at my mom’s I found a scrap of the material and glued it in my scrapbook.


This is my favorite picture.  I love how happy we all are, my baby sister’s bonnet, my dress and purse.  We must have been going to church.




With my mom  heart


I was about 12 in this picture.  My brother Isaac is the baby in the stroller.  Amanda and Nathan, my little sister and brother, are sitting next to him.




I was already married at this point.  In fact, my newborn son Ethan was in the room when we had this portrait taken of all five of us children.

  3. You were so adorable as a child 🙂 . What sweet pictures!  I get sad when I look at pictures of mine when they were little, I want to turn back the clock and have them all small  again (sniff,sniff). The years just fly by don’t they?

  4. What sweet pictures.You must be thankful to have such a wonderful childhood. I’m sure your mom looks back on the pictures and wishes she could have all of you guys back for a little while. I know my mom does….as she said in the comment above! Haha.
