Flashback Friday #1

I happened upon THIS blog through another friend... and thought it would be fun to join into her Flashback Friday Meme. So today... I would like to share with you a picture from my very first Halloween!!
That's my sister on the left... The Chicken... and I am on my great grandpa's lap... The Egg. (My cousin is on the right). My mom was the AWESOMEST at making costumes and having us do creative things when we were younger. I always thought that this Chicken/Egg Costume was a cool idea. If I remember correctly (from other pictures)... she even had my sis pull me in a little red wagon that had a nest of hay in it! Of course, at the time I had no idea......... thank goodness, since my sister was only 2 and I can imagine she didn't quite grasp the concept of GENTLE when it came to babies (otherwise known as ME!) :) Haha! This picture is special to me because it is one of the only ones that I have with my great grandpa. He passed away a number of years ago and I miss having the opportunity to have appreciated him as I became an adult. My great grandma is still kickin though! A whopping 93! Or is it 94? Either way... she is still hanging in there... although I believe she is ready to go anytime the Good Lord wants to take her!
Check out the other Flashback Fridays on Tia's blog... and check back here next week to see what I'll come up with next... or heck... come join in the fun and post your own!!

  2. Love it! My mom put us all in theme costumes one year. We went as Little Red Riding Hood, the big, bad Wolf, and Grandmother. I was too young to remember, but the picture is hilarious.
