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.

halloween6One of the magical things about Halloween is the excitement you see in your children’s eyes!!!!  They are thrilled to go to door to door and ask for candy that they normally wouldn’t be able to get (or eat!).
