Six days ago, I wrote a post promising you guys an ODNT Halloween retrospective. And far be it from me to break a promise. (cough) But there were a lot of pictures to assemble. It was a real project. The first part of which was easy. I literally did it all from my phone. Then came the archaeological digging. I dove deeper and deeper, often using a miner’s helmet to light the way, into old, antiquated boxes of disorganized pictures and assorted memories. I even sent in a canary at one point and, when he flew back out, I deemed it safe to continue.
Once inside the
prehistoric cave walls teeming with giant bats, poisonous spiders and dripping stalactites dusty photo boxes stored high on the shelves of my closet, I found pictures that were so old they actually predated digital photography. The photos were blurry and riddled with closed eyes, unready subjects and missed moments. There were even plastic strips of photo negatives in the little white Walgreen’s envelopes. (shudder)
Of course, none of this archaic nonsense means that *I* am old. It just means my kids are. Funny how it works that way, isn’t it?
Happy Halloween, everybody. Be safe tonight!
ODNT Tip for a Happier Halloween:
Remember, when given the choice between cheap, seasonal gummies or a chocolate bar, always go with the chocolate. Especially if it’s a Twix bar. That candy crunch has saved my life. More than once.
great costumes and HARRY POTTER not once, but twice! I love Harry Potter’s !
have a safe and fun night tonight!
You and Dave have such a beautiful family. Love the pics. Happy Halloween. We’ll be seeing Dave in about two weeks.
Wonderful pics! My only question is…why the hell do you not look any older today than you did in 2003? It’s. Just. Not. Fair!!!
This was such a great idea and worth all the digging. 🙂
My 13 year old went this year and will get to go again tomorrow because one town postponed due to weather. Tomorrow we also get to take our grandson woot woot. I might be a wee bit excited about that..
What a fun look back!
Oh my goodness! What an awesome idea! I have all of these costumes around my house but never thought about digging them up! Too cute!! And man are you creative!
