Wandering through old photos again. I have absolutely no idea what is going on in this picture. James is 5 and Pearl is 9. I do know that her outfit is a holdover from a Halloween costume, as is James' shirt. Her mask is handmade by her. His hat is a "gimme" from a conference Lee went to. That was back when companies had money for such things. Now Lee gets pens with logos on them. James' hotpink pants belong to her dress up box.
It looks as though there is a string tied to his ankle. She has the other end. That could only mean that he is her captive or pet, depending on the game they've made up.
James is now older (10) than Pearl was in this picture. I can't believe how quickly they grow. What's best, is that they still like each other. They don't play make believe games anymore, but that's okay. They also don't dress up in silly costumes anymore. I kinda miss that. Not so many fun photo opportunities with which to embarrass them in the future.
