a blast from the past

evening all!
how are you all? hope you're well:) today i had my 8/11th gcse which was english literature which went well :) i wrote 16 sides of a4 though haha, i know i always write ridiculous amounts so i'm hoping that it pays off! my school is pretty good though because we get study leave so now i only have to go in for exams which is fab :) 
today over dinner, conversation about my mugshot of a passport photo came up which then meant janelle went and fished out the whole family's new and old passport photos! this for me, was a really big discovery because my mum was born in barbados and there are few pictures of her from before she was about 19. but today i saw her passport photo from when she was only 13! similarly for my dad, today i saw his fresh 13 year old passport photo for the first time and it really was a blast from the past!
then i went around the house and found some old photos of my whole family, so today isn't really about fashion but i thought i'd just share them with you :) enjoy!

mum aged 22, and 13 on the right. mum looks so caribbean in the younger photo! this is totally where i get my eyebrows from, next time you see a photo of me and you can see my eyebrows, they're identical to my mum's in the photo on the right!

dad, aged 18 and 13 on the left. this is where i get my cheeks from :P dad was so so cute! he was milk monitor and best boy in primary and then again in secondary. seriously, dad was appointed milk monitor! how cute!
PhotobucketPhotobucket
mum 37, and dad 24. i've seen this photo of my mum before and i think she looks beautiful in it :) she's one of the only women i've seen who can pull of bald :P and seeing this picture of my dad is so strange because he looks so young! i only ever remember by dad being 35+ so seeing this is like.. wow :)
PhotobucketPhotobucket
me on the left, and marcel on the right. he was such a cutie :P this was his second birthday, i was 7 months :D i know i look a bit confused, i was sucking my thumb and mum took my thumb out my mouth for the picture :P
-------------------------
Photobucket
janelle and siobhan in the infants :P loving siobhan's elephant clip :P

Photobucket
dad used to read us a story every day before bed, and we'd all be wearing one of his tees. marcel, dad, me and janelle.
Photobucket
this was when my mum had extentions, when we had the old montego car and when our heights actually went in age order. siobhan, janelle, me, mum and marcel.
Photobucket
one of our many barbeques. we used to absolutely love satay sticks! :P this was when i was little and i decided i wanted locks but mum and dad didn't think it was a good idea to tie me into one hairstyle for my whole life, but mum let me try it for a little bit which is why we had the same hair :P me, siobhan, marcel, janelle and mummy :)

Photobucket
mum, janelle and siobhan. siobhan looks exactly the same now :P mum looks so happy :) the reason there are other photos around is because i made a massive photo board thats about 1x2.5 meters for my mum on mothers day with hundreds of old photos :)
Photobucket
janelle's bithday :) when our heights started levelling out because marcel didn't grow :P
Photobucket
my birthday :D i always get the most presents without fail, always have and i always will ;)
Photobucket
everyone knows this photo of me. yes i had a pot belly :p i enjoy my food okay! i enjoyed food more than wearing a top it seems :P
Photobucket
baby siobhan and janelle :P
Photobucket
we were never camera shy, as you can see *cough* siobhan :P

PhotobucketPhotobucket
marcel aged tiny. on the right he was enjoying cake in his high chair :P 
PhotobucketPhotobucket
on the left, i clearly remember this day. i crossed over the road and couldn't see my mum and i thought i was lost :P and on the right, marcel and i in a fire truck at nursury. 
Photobucket
and lastly a few photos we took in a passport booth, back when you could take more than one photo on a strip. you'd be able to see the others if my head wasn't so big :P
