What Shall I be...

for Halloween, Mom?  Ah, one of my favorite questions.  Throughout the years I have spent most of the month of October working on elaborate costumes for my children.  Why?  Because I could!  And I enjoyed it a lot!  I decided to go back through the photos on my computer and see if I could come up with a pretty good representation of the years of sewing and creativity. There aren't too many digitized ones from long ago, but there are a few.  Pretty fun to see, I think.  I hope you think so too.









Well, I couldn't find any evidence on my computer of Mickey and Minnie, The Little Mermaid, Superman, Pocahontas, The Scarlet Pimpernel, Dolly Parton from 9 to 5,... well, you get the idea.  It may be time to pull out the scrapbooks and do a little scanning.


I found some more!

















Such fun times as a family; such fun times for a mother.  I hope my children will remember fondly when their mother pulled out all the stops.  I'm afraid I have gotten lazy.  This year, would you believe, I ordered Miranda's costume online. ;-)
