great kids think alike (aka bri got a scanner)

Did you know Adam and I were doing very similar things while we were growing up?
While Adam was oddly sleeping on a laundry basket ...
I was oddly sleeping on the floor of a public establishment.
While Adam was a ghost (make that a boxing ghost) posing in front of a pumpkin ...
I was a princess posing in front of a pumpkin.
(I'm the one in blue.)
While Adam and Brian posed in front of their house ...
Kara and I posed in front of ours.
(Turns out I had squinty-eye syndrome as a child.)
While Adam had a very Smurf-y birthday ...
I had a very Barbie birthday.
Sidenote: Remember how I'm giving stink eye to one of my party-goers?
It was a little rude of me, but too funny!
And while Adam's fashion statement was brightly-colored clothing ...
Mine was giant bows the size of my head.
(Those yelps you hear are our mothers saying ... "That was the style!")

I was so jealous of how tight and smooth your mom used to be able to get your guys' hair. And you are absolutely adorable. I think Adam was a cutie too.

Kelly said...

This is a great sequence! Those are some fun pictures of you both as little kiddos. I especially like the one of B and A on the porch. Could you get any cuter little boys? By the way - you are the cutest little girl Bri! Such a pretty little poser. I love the "matchy-matchy" blue and white stripe dress with matching (exactly) blue socks and white shoes. I had the same thing in green stripes if you can believe it. I even folded them over several times too! Way to go white KEDS!

Loving the bright clothes and big bows. Very fashionable of you two.

And I love you asleep on the floor of a public establishment. That just warms my heart to know you haven't changed very much!

Logan and Emily said...

Remember how I love that you say remember. I love you! Remember how you and Adam were destined to be together!?

ali said...

that is some pretty smooth and tight hair, did you have a constant headache throughout childhood?

Nick and Lexie said...

You are so freakin cute as a kid! You should begin breeding right away.

Erin said...

I am so excited for what fun this new scanner will bring to your blog. Adam's florescent jams are awesome.

Natalie said...

I love the oversize bow. I'm sure you've noticed this, but oversize bows seem to be making a comeback on baby girls who sport very large flowers on headbands. It's actually pretty cute but I'm sure they'll look back and gag in 20 years.

JujuBean said...

Fab pics! I love the one of you asleep in the theater lobby! Yeah for new techno-toys!

jill said...

I love that you shared these adorable pictures with us! And Kara is still making the same face she's making in the birthday party pic.-love it!

Sammy said...

Remember how we both say remember how and its probably why we are friends? Seriously love that you fell asleep in a public place cause i most definitely fell asleep on a bench at the mall not too recently. At least you did yours in your childhood days.

Lindsey said...

bri, cutest little girl ever. my fave is the stink eye. so classic.

Kara said...

The biggest thing I got from these pics...I was adorable! You guys aren't bad either.

Tara said...

you guys are seriously adorable! What cute kiddos you'll have.

Craig and Carol said...

These pictures made us smile and your commentary made us laugh out loud. We are looking forward to seeing our 2 favorite sleepy-heads this weekend. Love you both!

Juli said...

I think I'm coveting Adam's Smurf bike.

Diane said...

Such a great pick-me-up after flying from Bangalore to Bangkok overnight. YOU two make me smile! AND it was the style!

Heidelweiss said...

Love the pics. Holy cow-the clothes! Why, I ask you, were we forced to wear such frippery?

Drew and Michelle said...

I think you were destined to be together!

Amanda said...

hahaha! yeah you KNOW that was the style! awesome. i can't even tell you how many side ponytails and puffy-painted shirts i owned. and wearing them oversized, with a knot tied on the side or even one of those little rings you shoved your shirt through to make it bunch!? stop! hilarious =).

What a fantastic trip down memory lane. I totally remember the Stewart "decor" in the background from my younger years...and it was probably snowing on Halloween night when Adam wore his "Ghost Gloves" You guys are such fun...

Annie and Doug said...

hee hee! Those were such a laugh! You are (and were) too cute!!

Gil, Keli and Dezi said...

BREEZY!! Oh...I totally don't know if you remeber me but I came across your blog from Jeff and Juli's. They're in my ward. You look so good. Congratulations on your marriage! You look sooo happy. Nice to see you (through the wonderful world of blogspot) again. Take care!
