Flashback Photos

How it use to be in the good ole' days (and how it should be on the streets, but isn't now).
The neighborhood gang!
I am the youngest one...
My first Graduation

Danny & I

The family picture
(when I was 1 and slightly resembled Santa)

I ALWAYS had a great fashion senseMy mom at my 2nd b-day in the gold shirt, looking like she is 14 with 2 kids.
Blowing out my candles and pouring milk (& looking a lot like my little Asher)
4 GENERATIONS: Mom, Great Grandma Krause, me, (uncle), and my Grandma Krause.
And this one is just for laughs. We grow REALLY fast in my family (well with Krause genes anyway) so Hayley, me, and my mom all were Giant's in our younger days. As you may know I am a very average 5'4" right now. Well in 4th grade I was a not so average 5"4".
That is my mom standing in FRONT of the teacher, looking like a teachers aid or something.

Happy Mothers Day to Nana!!!

My children love all their Grandparents so much! This is a good example, one day when my mom and dad came over and my kids did not want them to leave, so they ran to them outside and just hugged and laid on them, it did work for about another 10 minutes. We thought it was funny, smart little kids!
