dressing my buddy up in funny costumes and toting him around town for candy on halloween night is definitely something i look forward to this time of year! he's been some doosy of some characters...a bumble bee (ssqqquueee! baby max!), a jester, a knight, batman, a skele, a cowboy, and this year....a ninja? boys! i try to make his costumes for tricks and treats but he's bucking the system this year. he found a ninja costume at the store that made his heart skip a beat...dragons and ying yangs and all...and mama couldn't refuse.
(but between you and me...i'm making him a back up homemade costume anyways..haha)
growing up, we didn't celebrate halloween. and i never particularity felt deprived...my mom would usually take us out for a movie or have a "harvest party" on trick or treat night. but it's always been something i've been fascinated by, always seeming just a little bit forbidden. and something i knew for sure i would want to experience through my little ones when i was an adult!
although a harvest party sounds pretty good too!
so let me live vicariously through all of your childhoods! what was your favorite halloween costume when you were little?
