a little trip down memory lane…

Filed under: me — Jana @ 9:04 pm

I just got all the pictures of both my kids baby blessing from Lee’s Dad, Darling Dale, so now I can blog about them.  I am about to do Moseley’s post but since Carmen was blessed in the pre-blogging days, I figured I would do her post first.  I am just going to warn you now, this is one of those picture dump posts, so if you don’t like it… you’re ugly… go away.

Here she is in her little vintage blessing dress my mom gave her.

It is so weird to look back at baby Carmen because she looks so like Moseley now in many ways, yet she is still distinctly Carmen.

Although she did have  a much better hawk than Moseley when she was born.

Jason and Jeanette came out for the blessing, I don’t even think they were married yet then, and now they have 2 little girls.  I didn’t get to know Jeanette very well back then, but now thanks to this new thing called the internet, She is one of my most favorite mommy blog friends.

Some of these pictures may or may not have been taken in the chapel… What?  That’s allowed right?  Well he is Lee’s Dad, they kind of just do what they want.

My dad and my sister Carly.  Notice her shoulder length hair, well in my next post you will see that it takes exactly 3 years to grow butt length hair.  This was back when she was single.  Now she has a baby daddy (or I guess I could call it a… Husband) Josh, and a bun in the oven.

Lee’s pop… He is the one who is the good picture taker in the family, thank goodness, or my kids may not get their lives documented.

The token screaming picture… This one looks a lot like Moseley.

We went home for a BBQ and changed Carmen into her sweet tie-dye acid wash jeans.  I think those are back in style now, at least Adam from A.I. thinks so.sd card backup aug2006 444

Greg, Melinda, and tiny Brendan.  She was pregnant with Miles at the time, and  baby Eve was still a gleam in Greg’s eye.

Brendan tryin’ out the doggy door, like every toddler who has ever been to our house.

And of course Carl and Chantel, who now have two more boys, and Phil and Autumn, that realized that very day that Hailey was still waiting in heaven for them.

Ah, the memories.

  3. Leave it to Dad to take photos in the Chapel. One thing you can say is he has always gotten good photos of the family. I LOVE THAT!! It’s surprising how similar Carmie and Mose do look alike when they were younger. And you, dear Jana, are looking marvelous, as always!!
