It's a Tuesday. I didn't do anything overly exciting yesterday. Neither did the kids or Jim. So it's retro picture dump day today (as well as being Veteran's Day--shout out to all veterans and servicemen and women!). (Note to self: Find retro pictures of Jim)
Hey look, an actual picture of me studying in college! Note all the fab decor on the walls and on the shelf behind the back of the bed/couch. That's a calc book I have. And the rock is in this picture.
One day, my roommate, Karen, and I put off studying (um, I don't think Karen ever studied, actually) and made these. The window looks awesome, doesn't it? Lots of people in the dorms taped stuff to their windows to "make a statement" (stuff like "I heart Idaho" etc.) We didn't have a statement to make, we just didn't feel like studying and the interweb wasn't widely available as a form of wasting time yet. Do you see the little dots on the window? We taped hole punch leavings (Mike calls these "toilet weed") to the window too for added effect.
This is Katie. She was less than a year old at the time.
We always found Jimmy sleeping in random places. This was the randomest. He looks kinda uncomfortable. Notice how he had even put a pillow in the box with him.
Paul the Imp. He is eating Country Crock Margarine Spread (and apparently liking it). We couldn't leave him alone with butter on the table because he would crawl up and get into it. He'd not just eat it, but he'd get his fingers in it and smoosh it (look closely at the hand not holding the knife).
We also couldn't leave Paul alone with the fridge. Usually we put a baby gate up in the doorway to the kitchen. This is what happened the ONE TIME I forgot to put the gate up. That was fun to clean up.
Matt and Hayley aren't included in this because baby pictures of them aren't retro yet.
