(Sort of ) Wordless Wednesday

Here is a picture of Daniel dressed as Harry Potter for Halloween several years ago.
It wasn't until I had the picture printed, that I realized Matthew (as the sheriff) was aiming a gun right over the top of Daniel's head.

Boys will be boys.



Sigh.

He looks the real thing. It must be interesting bringing up boys. I had 2 girls...that was easy. (most of the time)
I really enjoyed reading Erma Bombeck's books back in the 80's.

Well you already know that THIS grandmother misses those fun Halloween times!!! Harry Potter, Tin Man, Scarecrow, Batman, Superman, Bert, and on and on!!! Those were some of the funnest times for me. Daniel looks AWESOME as Harry Potter! That's funny about the gun though, I didn't see that!

I still remember you laughing hysterically in your room as a teenager reading Erma Bombeck!

Love you!!!

Mom :)

Hi Amy. What a sweet picture! How funny Matthew looks in the background if you notice him! I love it! I also love the Erma Bombeck line you added. I've never followed her but I think I need to. What a lovely grandmotherly thought.
Have a great day.
