One of the blog memes that I really enjoy participating in is Think Back Thursday hosted by Debbie over at Debbie’s Digest. I do strive to post on Thursdays but I never seem to quite make it so I am thankful the linky stays open so I can add in sometime during the week.
This week’s theme is silly and since I am needing some silly right now it sounds perfect to me. One of the things that makes my family special is the silly ways we goof off and make each other laugh.
This picture makes me smile. It is just so Turtlegirl. Big silly glasses and eating a pickle. I think this was taken when she was about 5 1/2.
I don’t know why but my girls were always trying to sit or climb into the strangest places. So here is one silly girl sitting in a kitchen trash can! She had just turned 3 a few days earlier. Tailorbear being silly!
Playing dress up gives you a chance to be silly and make up stories. BooBear and Turtlegirl decided to put on a silly play about “the lady who was on the boat for a very long time.”
Being silly isn’t just for childhood. Grown-ups can be silly, too! In this first “grown ups being silly photo” my husband was goofing off with the girls in the kitchen. He put a cabbage leaf on his head and began to sing a silly song (I guess he thought he was a vegetable like Larry the cucumber or something.)
I think my husband enjoys being silly. We had the opportunity to do some skits with friends. Doesn’t my husband make a very sill looking lady? (Think Shakespeare, Midsummer Night’s Dream, the play within a play)
I think this last picture though has to be my favorite one of all. It is my mother sitting on my grandmother’s lap! They were both laughing and having fun.
