Horns and a Tail
Tuesday, May 3, 2011

So.... this lovely photo was in our scanner this week, so I could include it in a Perspectives post on Prize31.com asking "What would you tell your 16 year old self?"

I know.  You don't have to say it.  My up-do with ringlets is awesome.

My middle child hit "print" on the copier/scanner and made himself a black and white copy that he then proceeded to...uh...embellish.

Really Dylan?  Horns?  And Jonathan gets a cape...while I get a massive tail.

Cracked. Us. Up.

 So Lauryn, not wanting to be outdone, did a little work on the original:

Glad I found her just as she finished coloring the gate, before she added the tail and horns.  This is my only known copy of this prom photo, but I kinda love it that she decorated it a bit.  My teenage self would have never guessed what would eventually happen to this photo at the hands of our offspring.  So goes parenthood.

Who woulda ever thought it? So glad it worked out the way it did!!

Ohh, you're so good. I don't think I would have been so gracious about the "decorating"! :)
