Two pageant pictures

Beth over at A Cup of Coffey has asked all her blogger friends to post a school picture of themselves on October 1 for the first ever Little Miss Sunshine Online Pageant.
This is my first grade school picture. It is truly scary how much Bug and I look alike. She saw this picture and said "Who is that?!" When we told her it was me, she grinned and hugged me. Then she said "Oh, we're sisters!" Love that chick!

Could I actually have one of the original mulletts?

And this handsome young man is my dad (and Beth's uncle) - you can find him over at the Coffeypot. He is new to the blogger world and hasn't quite figured out how to post pictures. I wanted him in the pageant so, as a good daughter should, I volunteered to do it for him.

I'm not sure what grade he is in, but doesn't he look like a typical kid from the 50's?

I am off to view everyone else's pictures! Beth has a list of contestants, so head to her site to view all of the lovely fashions of "the day". This is a blast!

THAT'S the Marni I remember. So damn cute.

And, Johnny, Dan would like to borrow that shirt. Very retro-cool.

Dale said...

Very sweet Marni. Look at all that hair and how can someone with the missing front teeth have such a winning smile? Excellent - you may be ahead in the outfit race though. :-)

Your dad does look like he personifies the 50s. Good looking fella.

Great pics! I love the first grade missing teeth thing. Eating corn on the cob was so fun back then, right?? And yes, your dad looks like he should be in the television audience at the "Howdy Doody Show!"

Barbara said...

People pay a lot of money to get hair that color. What a cute picture! A reminder of when all you wanted for Christmas was your 2 front teeth!

Dan said...

Awesome photo Marni! Though I think your dad's nudges you out with those Coffey ears. =)

Marni said...

Beth: Thanks!

Dale: I LOVED that dress. I thought the boob-high belt was the coolest...

CP: I always thought dad looked like Howdy Doody!

Barbara: Thanks!

Dan: Oh, those ears... and now my son has them...

Ben Heller said...

What a cutie !
I just keep singing a song when I see the pic.

"All I want for christmas is my two front teeth".

It's a popular kids song in England.

Adorable! I love the outfit and the missing teeth :)

It's tough for a readhead to pull off a hot pink dress. Well done!

lulu said...

I pay big money to get my hair that color, lucky you.


Your dad is So cute, but those ears!

Coffeypot said...

Thanks, everyone, for the kind comments, especially for my beautiful daugher. She got it from me. Oh! And by the way. If you think the ears are funny you shoud see them when I am facing a heavy wind. They get to flapping so much I believe that is the reason for my dane brammage. But I can hear a gnat fart from 2 miles away.

I'm dying over here! So cute! I love a 'pelirrojo'! And the Dad?! Can he be any cuter?! Those ears and cheeks are just for pinching! Well posted.

Jacob's Mom said...

Sooooooooooooooooooo precious! The freckles are to die for

Dystopia said...

Your whole picture looks rather...pinkish.

Your dad looks exactly how little boys should look!!

Bubs said...

Yay, look at all that pink and purple cuteness!! I love it!

And your dad is like straight out of Spin and Marty.

Mother of Invention said...

Neat pics and so typical of Gr. 1! (I posted a Gr. 1 pic too but I hadn't lost any teeth yet. Figures! I'm always behind!)
Your dad must be handsome now!

So cute!

How cute is Jordan?! I love the fact that she called you sisters. I love the photos, too. I am not brave enough to post a photo of me in the 1st grade...

Great picture, aren't you the cute little red headed girl Charlie Brown was always in love with?
