Throwback Thursday #14

If you grew up in the 1970's and 1980's like I did, you'd probably remember birthday parties that included lots of balloons, birthday games and prizes, McDonald's birthday cake (I remember thinking it tasted like sawdust or cardboard!) and that really watered down orange drink that they had at McDonald's. There were birthday clowns (and to this day I still have a clown phobia...No joke!) and there were loot bags to take home when the party was over. Those were the days!!! Now it seems that many kids get super expensive presents and a birthday party that costs half of the price of a wedding! Okay, I'm exaggerating here, but the money spent on birthday parties now just seems to be a little on the insane side.

Anyway, in this Throwback Thursday photo, Middle Bro and I are hamming it up for the camera. I don't remember whose birthday it was, but it was a typical birthday celebration for us. Good times. How I miss those simpler days :)

Yes, Middle Bro and I were very close when we were kids. Baby Bro and I have always had a special bond. Apart from Hubby, Baby Bro is the only other person who knows me almost better than I do! LOL!

LOL! I think I was trying to do a Mickey Mouse thing, actually! If you think that's funny, my mom said that whenever we had guests/visitors at our house, I used to run to the bathroom, grab a tube of toothpaste and do a commercial for everyone! LOL! I even remember my lines! "This is Crest and this is Colgate. Which one do you think is better?" Hahaha! Then I'd go into the whole "Studies show...blah, blah, blah" routine! The guests would just be laughing because they thought I was hilarious! This is funny to me now because I remember myself as being a very shy kid! LOL!
