Photobooth Friday

    All hail the great Monchichi!
    My memory of this day (which I should probably run by my mom, just to see how accurate - or inaccurate - it is) is fairly clear. I remember getting this picture taken. I had to go to the doctors for a shot I think, some sort of required for kindergarten vaccination. That explains why I'm solo, Amy would have been in school already. As a treat for being so good my mom let me get photos taken in the booth (I wonder is it's the same booth that we were in at 3 and 4?). The dress I'm wearing (yes, it's a dress complete with smocking on the front) was a hand-me-down from Amy, I think we have pictures of her wearing it too. She's arriving tonight by the way and I promise to whisk her away to a photobooth-

    I adored my Monchichi... I wonder what happened to him?

    As always, Andrea at hulaseventy.blogspot.com/ is to thank for this wonderful idea. Go to her blog to see more lovely photobooth photographs-

      Great photo, Jes! I love the Monchichi there -- I remember the silly song that they had on the commericals-- drove me crazy.

      Can't wait to see the new shots with your sis!

      Hmm, I somehow missed the Monchichi phenomenon. I feel so cheated. Very cute photo though.

      It seems like everyone has a little love for the Monchichi!

      lovegreendog, mine wore a red little jumper/dress.

      jimtown, I saw them on ebay, I googled them to be sure I was spelling it right!

      ward, I vaguely remember the song from the commercial, oh the memories!

      When was this picture taken? :) You look so young!

      caroline, around 1982 I think - when I was 4 or 5. So many years ago!
