Before we get to the foursome of family photos, can we pause for a moment and look what a stylish little boy I was. Rockin' the bowl cut and polyester. Whoop!
Please note: Alaina and I are not twins. You may notice that we're wearing the same outfit in nearly every photo. This was perhaps the last time our clothing styles ran parallel.
Williams' Family Reunion 1983
Just last week, a few of us were giggling about family photos and Olan Mills. Low and behold, in this photo you can see the trademarked gold-foil stamp in the bottom right corner.
Our bed time was 7:30. Growing up in Phoenix, land of heat and eternal night; we often went to bed when it was still light outside. We didn't have a lot of money, so my mom sewed a good chunk of our wardrobe and babysat other kids. (I love exchanging "poor" stories with my friends--isn't it interesting how most of us grew up with less money?)
**Update: Alaina would like me to point out that she used to be taller than me. I'm sure my Mom would point out the same. Dad is barely holding on to the claim of tallest in the family.
