Do you see that white plastic ghost in the baby swing? I bought it as a gift for my daughter, Brandy, many years ago. Brandy had recently moved out, and was living on her own. She didn't have much money left to spend after paying her bills, so sometimes I'd buy her a few decorations around the holidays. This ghost was one of those decorations.
Last year, when Brandy brought out the old ghost for Halloween, her daughter, Madison, became quite attached to it. She carried it all around the yard and pretended that it was her best friend. We found this so amusing, that I took a photo and blogged about it.
Last week, Brandy got out the Halloween decorations again. Nothing has changed! Madison grabbed the old ghost and off the two of them went! They played on the swings, they slid down the sliding board, and Madison even drop-kicked the poor old ghost a few times. We had to caution her about being so rough with her "friend".
Madison's mom captured the above photo while the "friends" were resting...Isn't it wonderful to know that some friendships can withstand the test of time--and being packed away in a box?!
