Matthew in "That Mince pie" Mum made costume! approx 1995
Matthew came home from school and told me he was going to be in the Schools Nativity play as a "Mince Pie" .....so me being me, I had to hand make Matthew's "Mince pie" (all of the other children were wearing school"prop" painted "Pies".)
So I bought a hoopla, put material front and back, Decorated it with Holly leaves and "Baubles" for berries, and Matthew had a hole to put his head in and small gaps at the sides for his little hands...
Design fault Alert!!!!!!
Just minutes after this photo was taken, Matthew fell forward on his face and he couldn't pick himself up from looking like "a dying fly" as his hands were out the side of him and his little legs were kicking :-)
The whole hall roared with laughter before a teacher/helper had realised what had happened, and swipped him up to his feet....then it took a minute or so for his little head to poke out of the face hole!
He had a big smile on his face so I knew he was ok!
I think that was nearly the funniest thing I ever saw...LoL
