Who Did The Rabbit Ears

My mother is happiest when she has her girls all around her. My nephew Drew’s wedding is why we were all cleaned up on this day. Mom was in a sparkling dress and everything.

Mom always wants pictures of us and I hate my picture taken. I always think I am the ugliest of the girls and I figure that after I die they will remember my marvelous wit and forget that I haven’t got the Hahn beauty the rest of them have. They all pose and if they see a camera they start smiling and Lori even looks to see if her make up and hair looks good. Not me, I go running for the hills hoping that the Lord will come before they can publish the stupid picture. That is unless Lorna wants a picture taken. You have no choice but to bite the bullet and give in. She is the mom and what mom says goes. See how nice all of my sisters look? Well, maybe not Linda but she had a twig in her eye before the wedding that I had to take out. Now the reason for all of this hoopla.

I don’t know who the photographer was but they weren’t paying attention and I was doing the rabbit ears behind Mom’s head.Where did that rabbit ear thing come from? I don’t know but it sure lightens the mood for me. Who ever did it the first time was brilliant I say. It really isn’t mean because I think bunnies are cute.Who can be mad about rabbit ears on your head unless you’re weird and start thinking that they work in the Play Boy mansion or something and they wouldn’t think that about Mom because she is in her seventies.I figure if she is going to inflict the fear of the camera on me I am going to retaliate. I guess there was three or four shots like that until Linda the peace maker grabbed my head in a hammer lock. Why does she bother I say because as everybody knows you can knock her over breathing boo in her ear. They then snapped this one just before I got my hand back in place.

A few weeks later Mom goes to Walmart or somewhere and has her pictures made and she is lamenting about the rabbit ears to me.She was grumbling there were some nice shots but somebody put rabbit ears on her.Oh man! I couldn’t  help it, I laughed. I just love to laugh at my mom because when I laugh her grin is priceless and such a gift to me.

She will never know who did the rabbit ears because what goes on with these sisters stays with these sisters. That broken candy dish comes to mind when we all had to stand in line and get a swat because nobody would tell who broke it. We all took one for the team and they won’t squeal on me because they never do. That’s one of the reasons I love my sisters. There are a million more but that day it was because I got away with the rabbit ears. Thanks girls. Know if you need me I still have your back. Today I say thank God for sisters.sisters1 001 (916x1280)IMG_0496

  1. Don’t know where you get that you don’t have the Hahn good looks – you look just like our Dad and he was one good looking man. You are a true beauty inside and out. And Sis I have never considered myself as being beautiful only an average girl I have always hated my smile. But for some reason when we are all together the teeth start showing through the lips. Love ya! I would of loved to have been there when Mom brought up the rabbit ears we could of snikered together like we used to in the little house long ago.

    • You hit the nail on the head- I look like a good looking MAN! It was funny when Mom said that. The truth be told I tried to blame it on Linette but she wouldn’t buy it.

  2. Liz, I hate having my picture taken, too. But I love the stories behind them after the fact.

    I have to agree with some of the other comments. You have a beautiful smile, and it shows what a beautiful

      • Linda you always say just the right thing. I hated even pushing the post button because I was in the picture. Your cell phone makes me laugh because my daughters does the same thing. Sometimes she even sounds like she is in a tunnel or under water when she calls me. I have probably the first flip phone and we laugh because mine works just fine compared to her expensive one. Blessings my friend.

    • You sound just like my mother. That picture taking is real serious business to her. She makes many copies of them and distributes to all of the rabbit ear people in our family.

I love hearing from you so please comment
