Costume Party

A Thousand Words: Photo day!



What's going through the mind of the kid in the middle of this photo?

We have a winner!!! (11/07/09)
Hmmmm, its about 300 yards to the woods. If I could disappear in there no one else would ever see me in this stupid costume. I wonder how far I could get before Mom turns around??
Big Ups to: Mellodee
Method of Selection: There were some great answers to this one but Mellodee's resonated - I'm always looking for an escape route. It seems perfectly logical that since the ground wasn't opening to swallow him up, running for the trees was the next best thing.

My costume this year is a mess.
I can't believe I'm wearing a dress.

The Thorbergsens always hemmed and hawed when little Hans asked why tourists always wanted to take pictures of the family when they were out in their Sunday best.

"Mama? Can I wear a sateen pinafore every day?"

I asked my three year old what the kid was thinking. He said "He see's animals."
