SUYL/ Favorite Family Pictures

I rarely participate in Kelly's Korner's "Show Us Your Life" but I have at least 200,000 pictures of Kelly (and her brother) growing up and I thought since many of my readers of my blog come over from Kelly's blog, they might like to see some of my favorite pictures of Kelly growing up.

Yes, I know she may NEVER forgive me but I'll just live dangerously and forge ahead!!

Remember Olan Mills pictures?

(Does Hollis not look like her uncle Chris???)

This picture was made when we lived in New Orleans.

Kelly was about 4 1/2 when she started kindergarten in New Orleans.

Kelly at thirteen.

Chris and Kelly at their grandparents in Plano, Texas.

This was made at their other grandparents in De Queen, Arkansas.

Kelly and her first car her freshman year at college.

Our family trip to Hawaii.

These last two pictures were college-age pictures.  The one above was made at the University of Texas in Austin where Chris went to school.

This is one of my all-time favorite pictures of my kids together!

Then Kelly met Scott.........

And Chris met Carrie.......

And that's the way they became the Stamps-Martin bunch!!

Did I mention I had a FEW pictures of my granddaughters?......that's for another post another day!!

Oh wow! Loved the walk down memory lane. YES, Kelly's littlest one does look like her Uncle Chris. I could also see a resemblance between Kelly and Harper.

I really think Hollis looks like you (through the pictures I see) which means Chris, must look like you also.

Thanks for sharing. You and I are both so busy, for different reasons, but I sure wish we were neighbors sometimes. How fun that would be.

Take care, and until the next post -

God bless all of you!

These are all so great! Thanks for sharing. I think Harper totally looks like Kelly -- it must be neat for you to see Harper and remember Kelly at that age.

Gosh...I think Hollis looks just like Kelly as a baby. Such sweet pictures. I had to laugh at the car picture with Kelly. I had a Beretta as my first car too!!

Love all these pictures! Amazing how much Hollis looks like your family but how much Hollis and Harper look alike! You have such an attractive family....all of them! Love from the other Nonny

Renae said...

LOL!! Love looking at old pictures. De Queen, AR, my grandparents live in Locksburg, AR not far from there at all.

Libby said...

These were so delightful. You are certainly a blessed Mother and Grandmother, indeed. Thanks for risking incurring Kelly's ire.

Loved all the pictures!

Oh, I think you are great posting these pictures! Wonderful to see, actually. We just spent 3 days waiting out winter storm Q in Branson and I entertained the idea of coming to Flippin for church but then we saw another storm heading our way and we headed north to home! It would have been fun to have popped into your church for worship. Sorry it didn't work!

Kelly and I are about the same age and as I looked at these, I can see pictures my mom has with similar outfits and hair!

Anonymous said...

Both kids are adorable. So fresh faced and young! And yes, Hollis does look like Chris, but I always think of you when I see pictures of Hollis.

I could not get over how much Kelly looks just like Harper in the 2nd and 3erd picture! I have to agree with Dara. I see so much of you in Hollis. I love all of your pictures. I treasure mine.

I have come here today to ask if you could please pray for friends of mine. (See my blog for for more detail.) They just gave birth to their baby boy on Saturday. Even though we knew the outcome. He only lived for 6 hours. They have been so faithful to God throughout the pregnancy. I feel they are in need of prayers for healing. Thank you.
I hope you have a wonderful week.

Cathy's World said...

I hope you have a beautiful and blessed Easter


Linda said...

Well that was fun to come and see these pictures again. (I already paid a little visit earlier and left a comment) YES...Hollis DOES look like her uncle Chris when he was little! So cute! And Harper looks like Kelly!

Isn't it fun to look at old pictures and re-live the good ole days? (:>) My oh my, how does life fly by so quickly?!!!

You have a precious family Judy! (When I typed out your name I couldn't help but think of my sister "Judy" who passed away a few years ago! I miss her so much!)

Love, Linda Hogeland

I love seeing your pictures! They are precious! My 13 year old pictures look like your Kelly's.

OK... I've missed a lot! Carrie had a baby? Congrats! She's a doll.
