The best days.

In the midst of the move, we've had the ability to rummage through a lot of old pictures, cards, and other sentimental pieces. In essence, this has made me ten times more emotional. In many ways, I wish I could go back to being a little kid, carefree and concerned not with the things I am facing today, as an adult. Time flies, huh? I dearly treasure my childhood memories. My sisters and I were so close. My parents always loved each other and provided more than we needed. So blessed.

So, without further adieu, here are a few photos I figured I would share with you of "little Amber" and her dear sisters/family...




















Me at Chucky Cheese circa 1990.





















Mom, Dad, Ash and I. (I'm on Mom's lap and Ash is on Dad's)













Ticklish much?













Mom's hair was seriously rockin'. Ash and I look somewhat frightened.














Mama, Baby Ash and I














Glow Worms and Baby Alive's- Remember those, anyone!?














Cousin Ben and I havin a good time, as we always did.




















Ashton and I...two peas in a pod.












Like our Little Mermaid shirts? ;) New baby sister, Hannah. We were so excited!



















Matching windbreaker jumpsuits!














Yeah, I was a bride for Halloween in 2nd grade and I kind of hated it. As I approached every house for trick or treating, the homeowners would all sing "Here comes the bride...". I was shy at this age and this only made me feel very exposed and embarrassed. I remember crying about it. Hahaha. Little emotional me.

That's all for now! There are so many more pictures I would love to post but I have a lot to do, so I gotta get to it!

Hope you're all having a lovely weekend thus far. If you would be inclined to post some pictures of you as a baby/little girl I would love to see!!!! So, please do! :)

Back to being emotional and sentimental. I think I'll start by having coffee with my mom...
