  • Pictures of us!

    I know there are several threads on here of pictures of all of us. I just can't find them.

    I wanted to add a photo of a very young "Me". I'm at my Parents house. My Granparents moved to an apartment and had to downsize. In the process they gave my Mom and Dad a portrait that was hanging on thier wall for 27 years.

    I'd love to see photos of all of us. Takes the mind off of things.

    Don't laugh!

          Ronda,
          That is so sad about your photos. Most of my mom's childhood photos were destroyed in a flood (Baldwin Hills Flood, Los Angeles), but she was able to reconstruct a small album from photos kept by other relatives, outside the area. Is there anyone who can help you with that? It's much easier nowadays to copy/upload photos with scanners etc.

            Kara had a great idea, I do hope that there are other family members that have some that are willing to take the time and get you copies.

              Thanks All... I might be able to get some of my grandmother, but the only other people who had pictures of my kids when they were babies were my mom and sister, and there houses flooded too...We all lived on the Mississippi Coast...

              To give you all an idea of how bad the flood was my house was 9 feet off the ground, The top of my roof was 28feet , The water got 32 feet.. So my house was covered.. Its hard to believe..
              But enough about that.. . I want to see more cute baby pictures

              It might be a good thing I dont have anymore, wouldnt want to scare any one...lol

                      Id love to post pics on here, but I cant get them small enough. I dont have a photo editing program. I tried Photbucket, but it didnt help. Any ideas?

                      I would love to post a pic of me when I was little. I was such a skinny little toe head!
                      Meds: Percocet PRN; Pyridium PRN. First symptoms Dec 2005. Diagnosed in March 2006.

                      I am the proud mom of a two year old boy! I was lucky enough to be in remission my entire pregnancy. If you have any questions regarding my pregancy, delivery, breastfeeding, or pumping, feel free to contact me!

                      Im on Facebook! Just tell me you are from the ICN. Look me up under Kim Wayne.

                      I love working as a CNA in a nursing home. Started school in August part time. Going for my LPN!!!!

                        Irfanview has a free photo editing program that you can download. It doesn't have a ton of features, but you CAN resize pics on there. Just go to www.irfanview.com to download it. I have other editing programs that I use, but if I just need to resize something, I use irfanview because it's so darn easy to use! Okay, now we'll expect to see some pics!!!
