All Dressed Up – Birthday Party

From back in the day when girls were girls and our mothers dressed us funny. This throwback Thursday post is from my 7th or 8th birthday party.

I’m not sure why the boys in attendance weren’t in the photo, but maybe it was because their outfits weren’t suitably silly or bright.   Note the many, many frills on my smocked dress and Robin’s sailor suit!  Tina got off lucky with the sweater but it was January.

But still, we’re all pretty cute!  I wonder who was standing in the corner of the living room. Must have been fascinating since half of us are staring at them.  Oh, it might have been my attack cat!  More on the cat later.

    A little shout out to the others in the “my mommy dressed me funny” clan Robin Massey McKinnon & Tina Marie Page. I don’t remember the other 3 girls names.

    So awesome. I just showed my son Jude and said “who is that?” And he said “That’s me…” Wow he really looks like a mini me!!!
    Where was this taken?

    Tina, it was taken at my apartment in Hampton. (In front of the living room closet facing the kitchen… but I doubt you remember the place all that well since we spent most of our time at your place 😉 )
    Jude really does look like a mini-you!
