Halloween Costumes…Skelly Style

halloween1Halloween is such a fun holiday because it allows kids and adults to dress up in costumes, have parties, and eat lots of candy.  Growing up, I have great memories of different Halloween costumes.  My mom made most of our costumes.  I remember her making a crayon costume for Corrin and I and it falling apart as the night went on (literally).  I remember my parents going with their neighbors to a party as the Fruit of the Loom gang (Village Green:).


I feel that the best costumes are definitely the home made ones that a lot of thought and effort have gone into them.  My kids are all very creative.  One of my favorite costumes was the year Allison went as a Mummy.  She took a bed sheet and just cut it into pieces and wrapped it around her body.  We bought white face paint and she was set.
