SENIOR PICTURE.........and more!

This post is for Leigh Ann aka Momma Roar who recently posted a childhood picture of the "baseball" girl and then her senior picture and asked us to post our senior picture. I'm going to do that and a few more.

This picture was taken of me in 1942 when I was 4 years old. My mother had made the dress for me. It was a royal blue velvet and the star buttons were pink as was the hair bow. I felt so elegant and pretty :o)

This picture was taken in 1951 when I was 13 years old. Like most 13 year old I thought I was "grown up".

This is my senior picture. It was taken in 1954. I was 16 years old and "KNEW" I was grown up!


They didn't LET us have our boyfriends in our senior pictures, Leigh Ann. I'm glad because it wasn't Mickey so I wouldn't be posting it!!!!







This one was taken in 1993. I was 56 years old and "THOUGHT" I was old!!!
I'm posting this because Leigh Ann's senior pictures were taken in the 1990's and I was already "old". By the way, for those of you who have read my post about my Angels birthday cake. This is the birthday cake my son-in-love, Dave baked for me. He had no idea what a big deal that would be for me as I'm had so few of them since I have a Christmas Birthday.
Thanks for letting me share these with you. Who else is going to follow Leigh Ann's request to share your senior picture? Be sure and let her (and me, too. Please) know so we can come look and see.
Happy Mother's Day

Photographs that show the passage of time are all the more memorable when we are able to look back on them with such joy.

Truly delightful photo's Susan.

Blessings.

Susan said...

Awwww....I love these pics! Your first one looks like the little girl in my favorite holiday movie, "It's a Wonderful Life".

I told Leigh Ann that I'd try to do this when I return from Toronto.

Hugs to you!! And Happy Mother's day!!

:-) Susan

I don't know about the senior picture deal--Oh, I have a good excuse--The scanner doesn't work with our current set up1 Whew, close one!

I love your pictures! You look very ladylike at 13!

Susan-
Those pics were wonderful! I will try and get mine posted. Momma Roar, I graduated in 1996 so mine aren't any better! Happy Mother's Day Susan! I hope you have a wonderful day!

Hi Susan,
I'm catching up here on your last few posts...
Love seeing the vintage pics of you. I also enjoyed reading about the pocket watch you gave your husband for your vow renewal. I'm sure he cherishes it :)
Happy Mother's Day!

I can't believe you labeled them under "aging". How about "Still gorgeous after all these years"? Thanks for sharing, Susan!

I already posted photos of myself in my high school days. I guess you will have to read all of my 300+ posts to find them, haha. I didn't really even order senior pictures because I cut my hair all off right before and hated my photos.

Great pictures!! I think you looked lovely in all of them.

Ruth said...

I LOVE your pictures!! I love your little girl picture. Thank you for sharing! (I wouldn't mind sharing mine, but I don't have a scanner.)

I loved this! I'll have to dig mine out. :)

Your senior picture is beautiful. My mom was born in 1946, and her senior picture has the same "feel" to it - I'm not sure what the adjective is... But, it seems like such an "elegant" time there is part of me that is sorry I missed it. :)

Thanks for sharing.

Linds said...

I love the photos. You are gorgeous now, and were then too! Happy Mother's Day!

Kitty said...

I love these pictures!!!! They are all so pretty. It's so sweet how you still remember the pretty dress your mother made you and how you felt when you wore it. I feel the same way about some of the dresses my mother made for me when I was little, too!!

Trella said...

I loved seeing your pictures. I really love the first two! That was so sweet of him to make you that cake. My birthday is also in December and my mom had a goal of always trying to seperate my birthday and Christams.

Jill Norwood said...

I think I'll take you up on this one... I saw Momma Roar's senior picture, too and commented that we should have a share day. Sometime this week I'll post it....yikes!

Pam said...
