Our Little Pumpkin

“My 3 year old was very unhappy about his first preschool field trip even though it was to a fun pumpkin patch. He scowled at everyone and everything the entire time and was even madder after I coerced him to getting behind this pumpkin cut-out to take this picture… if looks could kill, I would have been dead immediately after taking this photo!”

All Dolled Up

“This photo was taken on Halloween in 1984. It’s my sister (Raggady Ann), my brother (@jdcallan – a teddy bear?), and myself (Cabbage Patch Doll). My 25 year old mother was clearly unprepared for her life with 3 children!”

“Halloween 1994, when my parents told us they were a sock and a sock box, and asked us to put on our white pajamas, because we were dryer lint.”
