Happy Halloween, friends! I was thinking about what to post today and I couldn't resist showing you a few pictures of me on Halloweens past. I think that most of the reason I love Halloween so much is that I have SUPER fond memories of it growing up.
Here I am in a Pre-K parade as an Indian princess... apparently it was serious business :)
I'm not sure if this was Halloween or just a random "Fifties Day", either way - it's a costume :)
And I think one of my favorite Halloween memories is this pic...
Yes, people... that's me as a world. My mom always made my Halloween costumes and when I got into the 3rd or 4th grade I REALLY wanted a store bought one. (Why??? I'm not sure). My mom assured me that there wasn't a single costume she could't make for me and so I threw out the most abstract idea EVER in the hopes that she would cave and we'd have to go buy a costume... a globe. My mom assured my sweet little sassy self that she could totally make me a world costume and a few weeks later there I was.... at the Church carnival... in a world costume.... made out of toilet seat covers. :)
Life Lesson #1: Don't challenge my mom.
Life Lesson #2: My mom is awesome
Our plans for today include a Pajama Parade for Luke this morning, Halloween party at Miss Lisa's for the "littles", jack-o-lantern pizza, trick-or-treating and eating our kids candy after they go to bed :)
Tomorrow is November 1st - which means I am officially allowed to show you all the Christmas stuff I've already been up to - which may or may not involve Ryan Gosling Christmas ornaments for my classroom tree and a North Pole Breakfast to top last years :)
