Sincerely 'Fro Me to You-30 Years Ago

Welcome to this week's Sincerely 'Fro Me to You Carnival. If you want to join in, you can read the guidelines here.  Last week, I had so much fun reading your posts.  (You guys are funny!) So, I'm looking forward to what you've got!


I knew I had this picture somewhere.
 
I searched high and low.  Low and high.  

It offers true proof of an early addiction that has plagued me for thirty years.

30 years, people!


I'M- A- C-H-O-C-O-L-A-T-E  -L-O-V-E-R!!

This is a photo my twin sister and I when we were five years old.  My dad is helping us make a chocolate cake for our Mom for Mother's Day.  Mother's Day thirty years ago! (My hubby took one glance at this picture and called me the Big Twin.  'I'm on a chair, she is not," I explained.  His look showed his doubt.)

Can you see that glint in my eye?  I'm not really there for the cooking lesson or for the gift- giving. I'm there for the chocolate.


And, I have a knife in my hand.

So, watch out.

Chocolate is like my BFF and we're pretty tight.  I still eat it regularly,  knife, and all.

Back away from my chocolate and no one will get hurt.

Not much has changed in 30 years, except I'm the mother now and I'm somewhat bigger.

You know, from all the child-birthing and the chocolate.

I knew you were standing on a chair, I mean you had to be on a chair. Right?

There is nothing better than licking the bowl after making Chocolate cake or Brownies. :)

Oh dang. Think I accidentally deleted my comment.

Some things never change! :D

You will seriously get a giggle out of my post. I also searched for my picture high & low. I knew I had it somewhere. Our middle child is "strangling" our littlest. When I saw your picture, I immediately thought of this one. Thanks for sharing! Thanks for the memories.

I think I'm gonna have to see the therapist double this week. :D

I'm still laughing at the "big twin" comment. I can understand your love of chocolate. What else can compare to the beauty of chocolate?

P.S. He loves you... said...

You know I'm seriously become an blog addict thanks to you and all those fun things to do out in the blog sphere world!

LifeatTheCircus said...

Best part of the cake is the batter and the icing... hope you gets lots of chocolate this Sunday!

Jewelgirl said...

MaryLu said...

Blue Castle wants to know what compares with the beauty of chocolate?

Cute Cute Cute! Sweet of Daddy to have you girls doing something special for Mom. Did he clean up the mess too?

Thanks for hosting this fun little walk down memory lane. I have mine up and I enjoyed participating.

Be blessed Kristen.

Mommy Mechanics said...

That is really cute. I love chocolate too! I mean who doesn't? It's probably the best thing ever.

Lisa said...

Very cute pic! And I'm with you on the chocolate! That's why the word is in my blog name. In fact, my post today is about chocolate, so you might like it! I wasn't prepared to join in your carnival this time, but will try to in the future.

Happy Mommy said...

I love some chocolate too! The only thing better than chocolate on a knife is chocolate on a spoon with peanut butter!

bunchofbull-ers! said...

Ooooh, makes me want to bake some brownies so I can lick half the batter from a spoon...Yummy! Cute pic! And I would say 'taller' not 'bigger' anyway! I feel your pain, my older sister is smaller...I mean shorter...than me! ;O)

Domestic Accident said...

Oh, crud. I don't know why the preemie story thing popped up. Darn it!

Dude, if my sister was after my chocolate, I'd use a knife in a threatening manner, too.

lori said...

2 things....you made me LAUGH and that is a GOOD thing...great post at the CAFE!! Secondly, there is nothing like chocolate straight off the knife! I'm teaching my kiddos well...they are all future knife lickers!! Someone's gotta pass down the FUN stuff!!!

Happy Mother's Day!!

Janel said...

Oh, great shot! It is such a perfect photo to describe all kids and licking the bowl!

Thanks for the fun!
Happy Mothers Day to you!
Janel

Suzie said...

Gotta love the chocolate. Great pictures too.

Marie said...

My daughter is obsessed with chocolate too. I don't know WHERE she gets it. ;)

When we have cake on the rare occasion, my son just scraped off the frosting and eats it. His birthday is coming up and I'm seriously considering simply shaping something out of frosting and whipped cream for him.

WorldsGreatestMommy said...

Adorable picture. I was obsessed with brown sugar. I still go a little overboard on the oatmeal.

I was very brave and posted a couple of pics from 6th and 7th grade. Don't laugh too hard.

Darla said...

Oh I lurves me some chocolate. WIsh I didn't. *sigh*

Thanks for letting me participate!

Colleen said...

I will definitely be linking up my Flashback Friday post when it goes up later tonight - found some GREAT old pics (well, great in that they're old and I've not seen them in years, not great as in they offer proof positive that my hair has always been possessed by the DEVIL!)

Great pic!

Becoming Me said...

Hysterical!

Carol Van Rooy said...

This has become so much fun to look back and see what people are pulling from their albums.

I will put mine up after work this afternoon.

Stay tuned.

Bahama Shores Mama said...

Thanks for the opportunity to play along. I just started my blog two days ago and you've given me a great opportunity to post my first pic.

I was spitting soda when I read what your husband said about being the bigger twin!

I always let my kids like the spoons, but now I'm gonna have to start taking pictures of them doing it. Who knew those pics could come in handy one day?

Gotta GROW with it said...

oh i am SO bummed! i had this post already to plan for tomorrow on my idea for getting a perm and i was gonna use your "fro me to you" dealie. i'm a day off! just might do it today anyways. great idea ya have here! thanks for the invite.

Jamie said...

Too funny! I have some addictions that started at a young age too.

Gotta GROW with it said...

I did it! Check it out for a good laugh!

Bina said...

Wow! You were a beautiful little girl! I love kids at that age. And you guys look HAPPY! But who wouldn't be, eating chocolate and all???

Heather J. said...

My Gosh, how cute were you two? (Not that you're not cute now.)

I'll try to get mine posted this even, still having "issues".

Shauna said...

So funny! My first thought was...Kristen really was the bigger twin!!! :)

JK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love you! :)

Miscellaneous From Missy said...

The very first thought that popped into my head when I saw that picture was, "Wow! You really were the bigger twin!" ...even though I knew you must be standing on a chair! I'm so glad your hubby was thoughtful enough to point that out to you. Hee-hee!

andreawilliams said...

love it! i too was the same way and i still am!! yumm. by the way your toddler post had me cracking up, seriously crying! those are my days.

franticallysimple said...

You go for that chocolate, girl and don't let anyone get in your way!
When my daughter was about three, she put her tiny little hands on my cheeks, looked into my eyes and said, "Mommy, I just love...chocolate." !

jennifer said...

I've been by here about 80 times today linking to other participants. Finally just felt RUDE to not stop by and say hi.

"Hellooo-oooo!" *spastic little wave*

womaninawindow said...

These old pictures speak volumes. VOLUMES!

Lilypad Mom said...

This post is making me want to go grab a spoon and open the container of frosting in the cabinet!

Ok, Where Was I? said...

The big twin! LOL! I just updated my post (yes, Thursday is practically over in blog world) to include the link to your blog. Duh! Sorry about that (you know, if you read it earlier and were like, Uh, great, but something is missing?).

Happy mother's day from another crazed chocolate lover.

Marni Tiani Self said...

You're hilarious! I would LOVE to do the Sincerely Fro Me To You... I just haven't bothered to dig out pics and scan quite yet! One day...

Until then I LOVE reading yours!! :)

Toni said...

Great photo! We are obviously within a year as far as age and love seeing those pics, the clothes, the hair...

I am going to have to go search out some of the pics from when I was 5.

Unfortunately my mother wasn't and isn't a camera person, she loves photos but using a camera is somehow beyond her and this is a woman with several degrees...

Borski and Nai said...

you've got a twin? wow! i've always wondered how it'd be to have a twin..

would love to hear more about that..hope you can indulge us and write a post on that one too..

have a great day! :)

twin power mommy said...

So is your twin identical? Doesn't look like it, but you never know. Who's older? How cute that you were helping daddy make a cake for mothers day.
My man always takes the kiddos out to help shop for mothers day.
I love that he takes the time to do that for me.
Perhaps next week, i'll be ready to participate in fro me to you...
still working up my nerve.

Twice Blessed said...

How cute are you? I tried to add your fro pic to my blog but couldn't figure it out. I cheated! I posted a pic of Happy Mommy this time. I promise to follow the rules next Thursday!

mommypie said...

This was always the best part about baking, wasn't it? Very cute :)

dcrmom said...

That's GREAT! I'm planning to play along next week. I've already posted 4x today. I'm thinking that's my quota! ;-)

THopgood said...

I had the same reaction your hubby had..."oh, is her twin a dwarf?"...thank God you explained.

Great post!

SoonerAggieMom said...

What a great pic and blog! I've seen that look a zillion times in my two boys...kinda like having eyes in the back of your head. Thanks for sharing

Rebecca said...

That was great! :)

Tamra said...

Oh, this is too funny! What a great linky post. I've been away too long! I'll try to join next week.
