{p,h,f,r}: the photo archives edition

A photo editing website that I used fairly regularly is shutting down (boo!), so I've spent a lot of my computer time this week getting my all my photos off their site and organized onto my computer.

Turns out I had a lot of photos over there, but the one fun thing about moving all of them was the nice little trip I took down memory lane.

Since I am also preoccupied this week with the first of many IEP evaluations for Fiver, and preparing for a certain little moppet's second birthday, I thought I'd share a few snaps for this week's {p,h,f,r}.

And check out all the other pretty, happy, funny reality over at Like Mother, Like Daughter.

So delicious.  I could just eat this baby up all day long.

I can't help it, I just love her expression.  She gives people that side-long glance often, as if to say, "Seriously?!"

This was at my sister-in-law's wedding.  Think we look pretty happy?  Well, we hadn't seen each other in six months, so you bet we were happy.  

Chocolate pudding on a 2 year old can be very  . . . {real.}
Now, who can guess which 2 year old this is?

Bad mom moment: at first I couldn't remember which baby's baptism this was.
Then the contextual clues kicked in and I remembered that I was holding Baby . . . . Bun!  

Speaking of Bun, he hasn't changed all that much.  He still makes this face in the morning.

Can you tell this was college in the mid-'90s?
I am rocking the puffy bangs and the dark, matte lipstick that all the girls wore.    

I just love this picture of Francie, Fiver, and Sally.  This was an outtake from our Christmas card, and I still regret not using it for the actual card.  It captures their personalities perfectly.

Speaking of personalities, what a pair!
Francie and Fiver were just about through with that photo session.

I think this is still my favorite picture of Sally ever.
This is not retouched, her eyes really were that blue.

Bun, making a classic Bun face. 

Fiver, what a sweetie.

This was only a year ago!
(Baby gets to wear that dress this year.)

And this was only 8 months ago!
These little girls sure have changed.

But some little girls never really change.
Sally has donned a tiara for as long as anyone can remember.

Fiver seems like such a little guy in this picture.
Those glasses were brand spanking new in this picture, and I still like them the best out of all the glasses he's had since.  I wish they still made those frames!

Mopsy still sucks those same fingers to fall asleep, but she added some hair twirling once she had some!

Another picture from my sister-in-law's wedding.  I wasn't the only one who was happy to see Rob.


  1. That was a sweet trip down memory lane. I can tell the chocolate pudding face is My Gal Sal (I think), and that Mopsy...well, I ain't pickin' favorites because that littl'n is too cute, too, but that Mopsy...

  2. Aw, I can't wait to celebrate my goddaughter's big 2nd birthday this weekend!!

    And I think chocolate 2 year old is Sally.

  3. So fun! Have you tried PicMonkey yet? It is easy to use and similar to the other service. You don't have to create an account either, just drop in a pic and edit and go. Easy-peasy. I'm keeping my pics in Flickr, but need to get my edits out of the other I guess.

  4. Love all the photos and I think that one is Sally too

  5. That eight month old pic is my favorite - so cute!

  6. Great photos! Thanks!


Go ahead and say it. You know you want to.
