Every so often, it hits me that I am now a ‘grown up’. I certainly don’t feel like a grown up. No way.
But one of the things I enjoy about being a grown up, is the fact that you get to make your own family traditions.
I like that for every birthday that any of us have, it will always involve a costume party (fabulous, or otherwise).
Samantha, my sister in law, (actually, from now on, I am just going to refer to her as just ‘sister’ – It’s too annoying to have to add in the ‘in law’ bit all the time. Plus, I feel like she is my sister) had her birthday party the other weekend. I was busy working that day, so I did miss half of it, but my lovely husband Dana was keen as mustard to take all the photos, so I wouldn’t miss out!
Some of the photos that I am going to show you today I am actually a little bit embarrassed about. At least one of them would definitely be awkwardfamilyphotos.com worthy.
So, in slight advance, I do hope that I do not offend your eyeballs. And please accept this as my language and concept warning. You see, my awesome brother David, decided it would be funny to attend the party dressed in a terrorist costume.
Come on now, if anyone could tell me they have seen a more awful costume, I’d be pretty surprised!
We are really a family full of awkward. Two whole fistfuls of it. And I’d not change it for the world.
All photos taken by my beautiful husband Dana.
And now for the awkwardandhorrible…
And for something totally redeeming…
Happy birthday Sam.
