Wayback Wednesday: Trick or Treat, Part 3

I’m nearly out of Wednesday, but before I head off to bed I wanted to share the third and final childhood Halloween photo from my shoebox-o-pictures. (I have no doubt that there are many other costumed pix at my mom’s house, but these are the ones I have.)

Florence Nightingale, 1980.
Florence Nightingale, 1980.

I think this picture was from the fifth grade, which I believe was the last year I dressed up to go to school. I do remember being not just a nurse, but Florence Nightingale – hence the slightly old-timey look to the outfit. (Yes, I was already a history geek by the age of 10. I expect this is not surprising.)

I’m adding a bonus, totally not old photo to today’s post because it’s seriously the cutest thing I’ve ever seen – my nephew James, in his Halloween costume, in a pile of pumpkins. If you don’t find this adorable… Well, you have no soul. And I say that totally without auntie bias; science could prove the fact of its adorability.



Do you have photos from your past that you’re willing to share – and a blog to post them on? Play along with Wayback Wednesday by linking back to this post or sharing in the comments so we can snoop into your past, too!

    2. Sarah, oldest said he was thinking of dressing as a hockey player for Halloween. We said he couldn’t because he IS a hockey player. So, now that you’ve had your class, you can’t dress as one either. 🙂

      Oh, I think you dramatically misunderstand what I am learning in this class. I am merely in the first level of the hockey skating class. (I switched from just the regular adult basics track, which would eventually teach me how to spins and jumps, which I don’t care about.) Sticks and pucks come long, long after this. I am no more a hockey player than I am an astronaut!

      J, on the other hand, is legit. I’ve seen his goal-scoring videos!

    Oh, and of course I like the Nightingale outfit, too.

      Thought you might. 🙂
