When I initially set-out to write my last post, Goodbyes, I had planned to include some early pictures of Kelly and myself (sorry Alex, you weren’t included!). And yet, the more I wrote, the more the pictures didn’t seem to fit and once I inputted them, they just seemed … well … awkward. So I deleted them.
I did, however, go to all the trouble of finding the photos, scanning and editing them, that I thought it would be a shame not to share them. (Remember, I am extremely vain!)
Below you’ll find photos of Kelly and me….”the girls”….as we were (and still are) commonly referred to as. People always comment on how much we look alike, neither of us see it, but it’s interesting. I think in these photos we are to young and the age gap is obvious….one of these days I’ll look for more recent pictures of the two of us together. Granted, despite looking a lot a like, Kelly is 6” TALLER then me, which makes it very easy to differentiate between the both of us!
Enjoy some early pictures of me and Kelly. Yes, you can see my big mouth and same smile, even back when I was little! And if you are good at math, you might be able to figure out how old I really am!
Oh….and my mom claimed she always dressed us to the T’s…I’m not so sure! Apparently, it was the style back then, I think she just had no taste
Cori & Kelly – 1988
(*Betcha Didn’t Know - My mom made my dress and the dress Kelly is wearing is our blessing dress. Each of us girls (including Alex) wore this dress for our blessing and then got professional photos taken, all at 3 months old! Yes, my mom still has the dress, will it continue into the next generation?? We’ll just have to wait and see!)
Benson Family Christmas Photo – 1989
(*Betcha Didn’t Know - I don’t remember why…and YES I do remember this even though I was only four, but on Christmas Eve that year, Kelly got really sick and had to go to the Emergency Room*)
Kelly & Cori
(*Betcha Didn’t Know – The house we’re in in this picture is the house I almost always dream I’m at…very strange!
Kelly & Cori – 1990
Cori & Kelly – 1991
(*Betcha Didn’t Know – My grandparents lived in a beautiful condo overlooking Lake Washington after they moved off of their 50ft boat. Kelly & I spent many summers swimming in their pool. If you look closely between the trees and the deck chairs, you can see Lake Washington! We used to throw balls into the lake and make Zak jump in and save them! I don’t know who enjoyed that more, us or Zak?!
Okay, enough reminiscing!! Thanks for stopping by and allowing me to show off!
Happy Friday, Friends!
