Black and White Wednesday - Back in the Day

For today's B&W, I knew I wanted a picture from my past. This is actually one of the oldest pictures on my laptop - it's from August 2007. Everything from before that is on a different laptop. I need to buy an external hard drive to store all my stuff.

That little turtle is Shampoo. Jon bought him for me at our first trip to SeaWorld. He may be a stuffed turtle, but he means alot to me.

Now, I've been trying to practice gradients because everyone seems to be using them, and my dad already mastered the skill. So I did another picture. I didn't take the picture, I'm only about 3 years old. But it's just so darn cute!

This is me and my brother when we were in my cousin Chris's wedding in 1988. I was apparently miserable throughout the entire ceremony and all though pictures, so the photog caught Dave trying to cheer me up. Valiant effort on his part. And, to this day, he is pretty much the only person who can make me laugh when I'm at my lowest.

Black and white wednesday was started by Lisa over at The Long Road to China.

That is so sweet with you and your brother. Totally and completely precious! What is gradient? I think you did it whatever it is though because your pictures look great : ). Nice to visit you for this fun meme!

I LOVE the one of you and your brother. It's gorgeous. You must have that enlarged and framed somewhere.

I, too, love the picture of you & your brother - that is very sweet! I know what it's like to live with a sassy 3 year old; I'm sure you gave your parents a run for their money!
