Instead of Wordless Wednesday, I present you with Way Back When-esday

This was Halloween, three years ago. Take note of the beat-up couch and ugly drapes. Thankfully, we do not own either one anymore, nor do we live in the same house, so I'm all nostalgic now. Don't you love how thrilled Owen looks to be dressed as a mouse? Also, this was the last Halloween that Josie actually donned a costume and allowed me near her with a camera. She is going to kill me for posting this, which makes it all the more fun. Apparently, I'm a rebel at heart. Who knew?

Edited to add~ The more I look at this picture, the more it looks like Alex's arms are...weird. I have no idea what he was doing, but he does actually have forearms...and hands, even. This picture makes him look like he has flaming flippers coming out of his elbows. I have some mad photography skillz, y'all.

"Way Back When-esday" is bound to catch on! That's hilarious! I love the pic, too...Owen looks like he is depressed, all saggy ears and all.

:-)

I like the Way Back When-esday thing, you little rebel you.

So funny! Love the Mickey costume!! If they made that in adult size, my husband would SO be Mickey for Halloween!! =)

Very funny!:)

Some people end up having to pay their children in order to post old pictures of them dressed up in costumes to share with tens of people on the internet.

Not me, of course, but I've heard stories.;)

I'm happy to meet you and enjoyed chuckling through several posts.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.

I homeschooled for one year. And thereafter told people that you should do it at least once - it makes it very easy to write the check to private school. We did some public school along the way too and they all turned out wonderful and smart. Let's hear it for grace!!

I'm glad you're a rebel...that's a great photo!

I'm a rebel that way too. If I take a picture and one of the kids says "Don't you dare show that to anyone", you know I'm going to post it. LOL

Wendi @ Every Day Miracles said...
