Aloha Follow Friday, NEVER GROWING OLD, & Photo Flashback!

Alicia at More than Words started "Friday Photo Flashback". I'm having a blast & you can too! Dig out your photo album! Don't forget to sign up so we can all visit and comment on each others pics/blogs! IT'S GREAT FUN!   The top picture (1968) is my family in the house where I grew up.  From right to left is my Grandmother (Nana), Mom, Dad, Aunt Bernice, and my Godfather & Dad's older brother Uncle Robbie who my youngest son was named after, but they're both Robert, but Mom started to call him Rocky (or Rocco) instead of Robbie.  This little girl is in the same house with my mom's dog Peppy.  Now I bet you're wondering who she is!  ~hehe~  Okay! Okay!  That's NightOwlMama (my baby girl - Tricia Lita, a nickname my Dad use to call her).  This is Dec. 1969.

My question is:  Can you remember your favorite toy as a kid, and maybe your favorite game?   

I loved my Connie Stevens doll.  (She was like a Barbie).  I loved making clothes for her, and I loved my phonograph.  Had lots of records too.  My favorite game was "Life"!

It's tons of fun!  Bring a friend!  Hell, bring lots of friends.  Have a great weekend!

I really did not play with toys, However my favorite thing was the nurses outfit my grandmother maid for me. It was a cape with the redcross on it and a hat.

Those are gorgeous pictures! I love the look of older pictures-They're just so beautiful in their own way :)

As for a favorite toy...Hm...I'd have to say my favorite toy wasn't a toy, but a stuffed animal I've had ever since I was 1 name Mr. Bear.

Yes, he is indeed a bear xD

I still have him too {and sleep with him, but don't tell! Hehe.}.

Happy Friday!

Hey, the whole family at the table & you behind the camera. You're gram & parents don't look that old there. So, my favorite toy as a kid huh. Well, I have to say it was my guitar, but it's no toy!

When I was younger, I had a Barbie that you put stickers on, lay the doll in the sun, the skin would darken and then you take off the stickers- (tattoos) Where the stickers were, would be white. I also had an electronic game called Merlin that I liked.

Love those photos... I love seeing them every week. Tricia is such a cutie pie.
I know that my favorite toy was a blue teddy bear that my grandmother gave me the day I was born, it had a music box at one time but I took it out fixed it and replaced it. Then it broke for good and I did a complete musicboxectomy (hence when I decided I wanted to be a doctor). I still have that teddy bear safely stored away - minus the music box and all of it's fur. :)
Miss you grandma... love you!
