My schedule was too busy this past week to do much of anything for Halloween. It was a real bummer, because Halloween has been one of my favorite holidays since I was a kid. So to get into the spirit I went digging through old pictures and found this gem for a special Halloween edition of #WaybackWednesday
I’m not sure when this picture was taken but my best guess would be 1986. This guess is mostly based on my cousin Chrissy up front in the karate costume. She looks to be about 2 in this picture, which would make this 26 years ago.
This first thing I noticed is The Captain sitting down in the world’s worst pirate costume. Not only am I wearing an eye patch on TOP of my head, I’m also wearing socks with my sandals which is about as un-pirate as it gets. Serious Captain Fail.
My sister is standing in the back left in a greasy old granny costume, complete with a vacuum. Only seven years old and she’s already mocking the elderly.
The other two girls in the picture were our neighbors Brandi and Aubrey, our best friends at the time. Aubrey is standing up in the witch costume, and Brandi is sitting down in what appears to be a hobo costume. Either that or Kenny Rogers. How funny is it that all three girls are wearing grey wigs?!
Thanks to the magic of Facebook I can see that Brandi and Aubrey are still big fans of Halloween just like Cathie and I. Brandi posted a picture from a previous Halloween where she’s wearing a Plankton costume from SpongeBob SquarePants that is amazing.
So Happy Halloween to all my family and friends and followers. May all of your candy be razor blade free!
