Alright, I think I'm going to regret this......

Remember when......
I believe I'm three in this picture.

But I'll do Michelle's tag from a while ago. I'm packing this week, so it'll give me something interesting to read for my breaks. :) Wasn't I a hottie?

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you have of me. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments.
This is my senior trip. I sure thought I was hot stuff. :) :)

Yeah You are playing along!!!!!! Give me a bit I'm going to think of a good one. Good luck packing. Can you still bend over?

Cindy said...

Wow you actually look a little bit like baby Crystal :) Love your 70's outfit.
I have memories of you wearing crazy hammer pants and dying your hair black with Jenny. I also have a memory of coming to a family party with 2 yr old Aubrie and you and Michelle kept swinging her around by the arms and she was loving it and then when it was time to go she wanted to stay with you guys! I was so sad. You've always been good with winning little kids hearts over! And being baby crazy!

Anna I think I thought of a good one. So one night when we were living in Clearfield (so I was under the age of 7) You were baby sitting me. We had had homemade pizza that night and my stomach was rejecting it. This was the first time I can remember ever throwing up. I remember running to the bathroom and you followed. You kept asking me "What do I do? What do I do?" and me being sweet and young, between the pukes said "pray for me! Pray for me Anna!" Because I knew I was going to die. You stood there in the hallway saying "Heavenly Father Bless Michelle, Heavenly Father Bless Michelle." Obviously I stopped you were super nice to me the rest of the night and let me lay on the couch next to you until mom and dad came home.

Just to throw it in. You are the one who taught Janay and I to rub conditioner all over our bodies so we could slide all over the bathroom floor. We got in trouble each time we did it and yet we never could resist a good slide on the bathroom floor.

Anna said...

it was mac n cheese, not pizza. And you threw up all over me before we went to the bathroom. I don't remember the praying part though. :)

My earliest memory of you was the Day you were born, I don't think I stopped smiling for at least two weeks. I couldn't believe that I really had a little girl. (no ultra sounds to give it away back then) You were such a sweet baby. The neighbors brought all kinds of pink dresses, blankets and fun stuff. I couldn't wait to take you to church, everyone made such a fuss over you all of the time. You were such a goer, you liked to climb on everything.You were a beautiful baby, and have turned into a very beautiful woman. Just so ya know, I made both your pants and the shirt that you are wearing in that picture.

I don't know if this is my "earliest" memory, but I remember Anna was really good at "getting her own way" with my folks when it involved getting something one of us boys didn't want her to have.

Here's how it would go:
1) Scream like mad & fake Crying
2) As she has her "crying" head buried into moms shoulder she'd look straight at us (remember mom is facing the other way), stop crying for about 5 seconds & stick her tongue out like "Ha, ha, I just got my way!"
3) She'd continue to "fake cry".

It used to tick all three of us boys off because we KNEW she was just "faking it", but my folks fell for it every time....

Yep. She wasn't as "innocent" as she looked back then. She could play them like a well tuned fiddle (much to her brothers sha-grin).

Anna said...

i admit i was the stereotypical pain of a little sis. I really remember sticking my lounge out. I even remember the boys calling me out and them getting in more trouble to even think I was faking. :) I really am scared of my little girl.

Cindy said...

Ok Anna, so I was wondering what you were so worried about with having a little girl. But maybe you should be scared.:)
Although, that really doesn't mean she will act like you. Maybe this kid will look and act like Jared! None of my girls are exactly like me, they each have a little bit of me and Dave in them.

Le said...

I remember when Dan and I were first engaged and it was your birthday. Everyone had said you would be the hardest person to win over and honestly you scared me a little. I had picked out your present (a duck soap dispenser that quacked when you pushed down on it to match your bathroom). I remember that you liked it and it made me so excited that maybe we could be friends! :)

Mom B said...

Hey Graydon - it's great to hear from you, and I enjoyed your story about "The Spoiled One". I pretty much remember the black hair also, lots of pajama pants as you got older, and did you suck your fingers funny, or was that just Janay? You had to be tough to follow those three. And Le, I think her bark was bigger than her bite. But Anna, your little girl will be just fine :)

I remember learning all the words to the Muppets song..."It's time to play the music...it's time to light the lights...something....at the Muppet Show tonight!" I'm pretty sure we had it memorized and sang and danced to it. I remember sleeping over and having family prayer on your long couches...to me they felt like they were about 19 feet long.

Max said...

I remember you wouldn't sit on my lap for more than 4 seconds. It really made me feel sad!
I also remember when Bishop Allred had spent a turn in the nursery. I said "Boy, that little girl of yours is a climber. She climbed all over the windows, and everything!"

I don't really have a first impression of you or memory to share. I just remember when we moved into the basement and you lived upstairs, and I felt like I could talk to you about anything. I'd feel myself rambling on and then feel embarrassed, because I had said to much. But you really are a good listener, and I've always thought of you as a strong, and amazing person.

I remember Lincoln picking up Da Vinci by the skin of his back and you screamed and the cat was trying to get loose but he couldn't. This was obviously before Da Vinci hit the 20lb mark. It makes me laugh when I think of it.

Oh and I remember when Da Vinci attacked Misha twice by hooking onto her face with his claws in the back yard and I thought Misha would kill him, and I started screaming but she didn't.

Regi's turn ... I remember walking up to the gas station and getting penny candy and sleeping out in the station wagon car thing your parents had.

When I thought I knew you, one christmas you show up with 3 inch fake eye lashes on with glue to last a couple days.

You Me and Jules all on the swing together. We would turn that metal cart over under tha clothes line pole. You two would get on and I would hold it then I would jump on last because it would make us go higher.

Here's one from a little girl who loved the cute lady in the yellow shirt. She held your hand and followed you all over at Lava. If she were here, (and she will be tomorrow) she would tell you how excited she is to see you at Lava! P.S. Her initials are E.B.
