Today is a Special Day! It is Throw Back Thursday! I am joining Thriftary and other bloggers sharing old childhood photos.
Well, let's get started:
1.  me at 2 years

2.  I was 6 years old in this photo - My Mom had to cut my hair short  because I fell asleep with gum and it ended up tangled in my long hair.
 3.  A day at the beach with my Dad - guess who I look like .... and act like.  4. In high school - I am dressed for my talent portion for the Beauty Pageant.  I was chosen to be in this because I was the only one in the club that had a talent.   5. 16 years - summer in South Carolina I was the nanny for my Aunt's 2 boys.
O.k., so now you know a little bit of my past; very little.  A couple more tidbits - I never walked anywhere; I was always running.  And, it seemed wherever I went there was an acident waiting to happen.  
Happy Throw Back Thursday!!!!!
