What I found at Mom's so far...





We are still enjoying our stay with family in Minnesota. Chip will probably make me quit blogging forever after this post though.
Jody and family..."the early years". As in Nitty.Gritty. 1979 & 1983 in the above photos. Remember awhile back when I blogged about Ogilvie Home perms? Well, that would be me with one in the second photo. I am just realizing that I grew up surrounded by people who would outright tell me lies. I remember people telling my parents that they had such a good-looking family...they were lying or just being nice at the time. Either way, I am happy to have grown up and found the Gap along the way. I am glad that I scrapped "home perms" for "Nice & Easy color enhancer". =) I do have to say that although I wasn't the cutest kid on the block growing up, I still wish I had more pictures to thumb through and laugh about and reminisce and of course, to scrap. My kids may think I'm crazy for all the times I stick the camera in their face for no special reason...but I am guessing they will thank me in the long run.
Here are some vintage Hi-Ho Cherrio game pictures I promised to post. Bella and Ava are loving this 1966 version. I am thinking it would be smart to do an Ebay search on this game and see whether or not I should be letting the kids play with this.
Next up? Despite the blasted cold weather here in MN, we are staying in and making a batch of French Vanilla Homemade Icecream. I will do my best to get a few photos of that event. Someday my kids will thank me, I'm sure!

Hi Jody,
I should probably know, but I'm not sure which little girl is you in the pictures from your past...
Would love to know.

The one little girl on the far left in the second picture looks very much like Teagan.

I LOVE Hi Ho Cherry-O! My 4 year old just got a used version (not as vintage as yours) as a prize at a Bible Club he attends, so we're playing it almost everyday. It's still as fun as I remember. Great pics BTW.

Keep playing the game. The memories are worth WAY more then it's ebay value :)

You look Mahvalous....or was that later in the 80's?

I love that game! Definitely hit up Ebay. While it was a super-quick search while I was "working," they have a good selection of vintage games.

Hee hee about the perms, Jody! Isn't it fun to go through stuff at the homestead - I unearthed a poster that was up at school that says PROM 1987! It has three dorky looking guys in Tom Cruise-like sunglasses thinking that they are super cool - what a throw back!
