Halloween is coming up just around the corner. Do your kids have a favourite Halloween costume planned? My daughter would start to think about her costume literally the week after Halloween – I loved her enthusiasm!
She came up with some pretty cool ideas and she would get them all together herself. She must have caught that from my husband – he loved dressing up for Halloween – had elaborate costumes that he made himself – we finally got rid of some of them on our move back from Vancouver, but I am sure he is wishing we had kept them. I remember one year, he decided he was going to be a Christmas tree – he looked great, awesome tree – only problem was that back then we didn’t have battery powered lights, so he had to stay close to a plug so his lights would work!
Here is one of the costumes we did manage to keep.
Do you have a favorite costume that you made up from your past or your child’s?
