Meet the Girl Version of Creed

My dad called us Saturday night to invite us to a slide show of slides from my childhood by request of my sisters. Candice mentioned to my mom that there aren't that many pictures of us when we were little and my mom said it's because they had lots of slides. We dug out a grocery bag and sorted through slides and came up with some gems. I took a few picture of the slide show with my camera since we don't have a slide scanner yet so forgive the blurry photos, but i had to post a few of my favorites.

First of all, I guess this explains where Creed's big open-mouthed smile comes from.
My mom made pretty much all of the clothes that you see in these pictures. I can't imagine making all of Creed's clothes.
People always ask where Creed gets his white-blond hair and they are always surprised when I say that I was the same way when I was little.
Here I am with Candice. We were always about the same size.
My whole family cracked up when they saw this one because this is so me. I used to fight to be able to get myself dressed and I always ended up in outfits like this when I won the battle. My mom would have to compromise, "You can wear this to the store if I get to pick out what you wear to church tomorrow . . ."
And speaking of stylin, here's my dad the day he got his PHD And here are all of the Borup girls.

It was crazy looking back and realizing how much Creed looks like me and how much Logan looks like Marissa. I'm so glad that my sisters got my dad to pull out the slides. It makes me a little sad that we don't use film anymore and Creed won't have a slide show of his childhood one day. We could always put together a Powerpoint and project it or something, but it just isn't the same as film.

SO fun! I loved watching slide shows of us when we were little--we'd do it for an FHE activity now and then. Those pics were so cute! I love finding the resemblance between kids and their parents. Can't believe you were so blond when you were young!!

I love those slides! You all were such cute kids. Oh my, Marissa is a little chunky monkey in the last one. I love it! Creed does look like you-that's adorable! Felicity looks EXACTLY like a picture of Kurt when he was a baby, not me:( I guess she will go through life hearing, "You look just like your dad!" which is what I still hear. I loved seeing you and meeting the famous Creed, what a great kid.

I LOVE these! We didn't have slides of US growing up, but I remember watching the multiple trays of slides from my dad's mission to Mexico. They were the best memories! Very fun pictures.
