The Cousins Project ... Still

Deb:

Me climbing up the stairs to meet cousin Scott, my bestie!

Me and the Egg, my brother. 

L to R: Me, Scott, someone, and Linda. Cousins, anyone know who someone is?

Dad, working it!!!!!!

Scott and me: best friends from birth.

Me and baby Egg

Granny, Grandpa, and Uncle Donald, and their new cottage sign. The background is red plaid and it reads "OOR HOOSE". Cousins: is the sign still up there? Who has it? 

Two-year-old bathing beauty Deb

Little party at Deb's. 

Cautious from the get-go. I don't trust this driver. Wish I knew her name though. hmmm.

Now THIS is a driver I can trust. Little Deb driving ... what's her name?

  1. These are great Deb!! You still do that look that you have on the bike behind "What's her name"!! It is so great to look in to someone's childhood and their family photos. Another one I love is your party in the kitchen. I love looking at the bread box and the decor of that time. Oh, and I had that same bathing suit!!!LOL xo

    1. Yes Jo I agree that the 50's stuff in the background is so fun to look at. Ahhh breadbaskets, I remember them well. Remember the decals they had on them of roses or fruit?

  5. Adorable Deb! In the one picture holding your baby brother you look exactly like a picture you've posted before of your son, I think it must be the hair.

    1. Ahhh no not pin curls, I hated pin curls! The things mothers do to their daughters hair. I try not to mess with my girls hair that much but I'm sure I've done something they weren't happy about at some point. Worst thing my Mom ever did was glue a barrette to my head for pictures because at three I still didn't have enough hair to hold one in.

    2. My mom didnt touch my hair when I was one coz it was golden brown and cute curly....she didnt wanna mess it up..Aww but my aunt was obsessed with my hair...I practically grew up at her place... so she was in charge of my hair....she experimented on them...in a great way actually...it looked great after she worked on it....now she hates it that I have shoulder-length hair...SHE CANT WORK ON IT ANYMORE !! hah! you should see my 10yr old pics with different hairstyles XD

  7. Oh Deb, so adorable! I love the picture of you on the back of the bike. Your face says it all. Just priceless. This is such a great project. I was just thinking about all my cousins. I was the first girl of my generation on both sides of my family, which means I have a lot of older, male cousins. I didn't spend a lot of time with most of them since we are all spread out around the country, but a few of them I have seen regularly since childhood. Let me just say, being the only girl was tough!

    1. Steph I bet it was tough. But I am glad you still see many of them. Cousins share life experience with us don't they?

  8. Aww I am loving these pics!!!! I have a question if you don't mind... Did you grow up in Canada? I don't think this matters for any reason, I was just curious : ).

    1. So glad you love them Kelly! I was brought up in Canada yes. Toronto to be specific. Born and raised. We spent two years in Newfoundland in the late 50's because of my Dad's job but other than that...

  13. Love the 50s look and the black and white adds to the old look, which makes it look even better!

    1. Yeah Garrett the old black and whites really have that "feel" to them don't they? I wish they were never ending!

  14. Your dad looks like a very cool guy! You look like such a happy family, easy to see where you get your personality from.
    My parents spent 8 years in Newfoundland in the 60/70's for my dad's work and have always kind of regretted moving. They made some of the best friends of their life there, and my mum still considers herself part Canadian even after all these years. :) Your photos remind me of the black and white "canada photo album" in my parents collection. Have loved looking it through it all my life, it was the closest I ever got to snow in my early years!

  15. Samara that is cool that you have a Canada photo album and your parents are right. Newfoundlanders are some of the kindest friendliest people in the world.
