I love Halloween! I like dressing up, I like walking around at night, I like getting tons of candy and then swapping it with friends. However, I do not like to be scared. No scary movies, no haunted houses, no people chasing me with a chain saw (yes, it has happened).
Back to the point. My favorite part of Halloween is the making of the costume. Growing up, I remember picking what I wanted to be for Halloween and then my mom would help me figure out how to make it. I always had the best time making my costume because I got to do crafts and spend time with my mom.
Me (in the blue) and my BFF Erin - circa 1992?
I have been making Claire's costumes since she was born and this year is no different. I may be biased, but I think that they are way cuter than anything I could buy in a store, plus they always get a good laugh.
1st Halloween - 4 months old - "Sack of Potatoes"
Yes, it says "Grown in Georgia". Adorable, I know.
2nd Halloween - 1 year old - "Claire Bear"
Check the tail and the butt heart! It says "Claire Bear".
And finally, the unveiling of this years costume! Drum roll please......
3rd Halloween - 2 years old - "Super Bunny"
Not the best pictures in the world but I'll take what I can get. I had to take her to the school to see Daddy to even get her to put the cape on. This is what I got when I tried it at home,
Tragic, I know. I'm such a horrible mother. We will be candy hunting tomorrow night so I hope to get some better shots then.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!
