Happy New Year and Flashbacks.

I have a good feeling about 2009. 2008 is going to be a hard year to top, but I have a feeling that 2009 will be giving it a run for it's money. 

We'd like to wish all of you a super happy new year - here's to actually accomplishing resolutions...right? :)

While we were visiting Ben's parents over the holidays (*which I am still planning on blogging about), we took a little trip down nostalgic photography lane. After flipping out a little over how adorable little Ben was, I was ecstatic to see that Ben had dug up some examples of "old school" Starks Photography. Ben's dad, Jerry, (I know, I know - "Ben and Jerry") has dabbled in a little snapping and shooting himself over the years! We scanned a few to throw onto this post, so check out the flashback below:

A couple of glamorous model poses from Ben's mom, Kathe. How sweet are those shades?


And because I know all of you are dying to see "little Ben," here's a glimpse into his past:

How adorable is that face? From what I understand, he was quite the handful as a kid, so I guess it was a good thing he was so cute.


I can't get over the cuteness. Even if he does look like he doesn't want to have anything to do with this picture. :) (and can we take a second to commemorate the "walkman" that Ben's brother, Andrew is rockin'?!)


So there you have it - ringing in the new year with a blast from the past. Maybe next year I'll be posting photos of a little Ben junior....? (just kidding, babe! ;))
