Way Back Wednesday: Play that Funky Music...

Welcome to Way Back Wednesday, the day where The Kept Woman gives us a theme involving past events and we are to dig through our albums and post the pics. Today's suggestion comes from Texas Mom and is all about 70's fashion. I was born in 1969, so my entire childhood is a study in bad 70's fashion. I literally could have found a sutiable shot with my eyes closed. I give you some of the highlights:
Let's start with the person who was responsible for all these groovy togs, my Mom.Here she is in the summer of 1970, when I was just 4 or so months old. Why couldn't I have gotten the skinny gene?
Easter 1972. Kinda cute, actually. Lovin' on the white patent leather shoes on the brother. (I actually have white saddle oxfords for my boys for this year...what goes around comes around and all that.)November, 1973. My 4th birthday. I think the look on my face sums it up nicely.
And finally, the best for last:
Easter 1974. I think Howdy Doody was popular then or something....
I could go on and on....
Did you play?

OMG!!! That last picture is absolutely hillarious!!!! I love the one of you on your birthday! Those are great! I couldn't dig out the really 70's pics as my mom has hidden my baby book so I'll quit stealing pictures, but I played the best I could.

I think you win hands down. :)

Honestly, I think what they did to your poor brother was worse than what they did to you. ;)

Oh my! Those are some fashions alright. Someday I shall be brave enough to look back at the 70s albums. I'm sure I had pants that matched your brother's suit.
