Happy Friday everyone and Happy Halloween! It’s nice when the kids can go trick-or-treating and you don’t have to worry about it being a school night! Here’s a few of my Halloween observations – call it a monster mish-mash. Muwahhaha!
Do you make them or buy them? Growing up, my Halloween costumes were always homemade by my mom. And I won the school costume contest every year. Except the year I had the chicken pox. That was a bummer. But my neighbor – who borrowed my ladybug costume that year – did win. My mom was good. These were not costumes that were over the top. They were fairly simple costumes that used common materials like posterboard, brown bags, markers, paper bags, string, etc. But she took the time and made them well. Some of my costumes I remember were a shaggy dog, a ladybug, a turtle, and my sister had one of the cutest costumes – a sunflower.
