Allow me to present . . . mother and daughter in their matching Christmas sweatshirts:
These must have been a gift from my mom and, while it’s cute on Hannah, on me? Oy. Is it appropriate to use a Yiddish exclamation of dismay on a Christmas photo? Well, I’m going with it.
And can we talk about my hair? The blondeness? And the permed-ness? And the headband with the bow? Double oy.
In any case, this was taken at my mom’s by her Christmas tree and in front of the fireplace. You can just see the edge of the Ten Commandments that now hangs in my dining room. And there are ornaments in that photo that now hang on my tree. And my baby girl – just look at those cheeks and those tiny feet and hands.
So, despite the corny sweatshirts and bad 80s hair that obviously carried over into the early 90s, it’s a photo I sort of treasure.
Happy Christmas, Throwback Thursday Style!
I think it’s a great photo! look at YOUR smile! (and like you, I wish the 1980’s and 1990’s had aged better…on all of us! OY indeed!)
So sweet, Carole! (Erin and I had matching snowman sweatshirts. And I had a similar permed . . . thing. . . going on with the hair.) Big OY.
The 80/90s were not the most fashionable of years, but the photo is a treasure because of the generations represented. The love on your face as you look at your daughter is priceless.
Oy also! The perms! What ever made them the “thing”? No sweatshirt for me but certainly a tacky sweater here and there!
I had a spiral perm on much longer hair. So I feel you.
That is a wonderful picture!

And look at the thinth!
Oy – the 90’s. What were we thinking? Do you wish you could go back in time for a day when Hannah was that little? I say for a day because I don’t think I would have enough energy to keep up with a baby anymore. But they are so darn cute at that age! What a nice Christmas memory.
I love this picture! Embrace your inner 80’s girl … and then be thankful we all woke up and changed our look 😉
Love it! You were totally with it, then, I’m sure!!
The 80’s gave us all wonderful hair, didn’t it? I actually like yours. Wish mine was like that now
So sweet! Even if we wonder what we were thinking style-wise those old pictures are a treasure. 🙂
It’s a wonderful picture. I just found a picture of Eldest around the same age (and around the same time!), and have been marveling at how quickly those 20 years have gone. (WB looked at the pictures with me and said, “Wow. You really had different glasses then, didn’t you? Giant round plastic frames FTW.)
