Happy Halloween Matey!

I’m sure we can all remember at least a few of our childhood Halloween costumes.
I know for a fact, when I was 8 and 9, I was a blue Care Bear. (Go figure)
I also remember being a Witch one year (which I truly believe had no reference to
to the future…maybe a little.) That year my uncle made me an incredible costume.
My hat was made out of black spray painted newspaper with
gold stars,and a wand from wood with a cardboard silver-glitter-covered-star.
One yearI was a Punk Rocker. Tons of hairspray and makeup is all I remember, lol.

Halloween is probably one of my favorite times because it is so much fun to decorate
with orange and yellow leaves, pumpkins and mums. It’s also exciting to see what the
children pick out for costumes and what motivates them to do so.

Saturday night we finished sewing my eldest daughter’s Wizard costume. It’s really amazing
with black glittery  satin fabric and shiny teal lining with a special clasp at the neck.
 Alongside my Wizard will be an Evil Doctor and a Transformer. I am going as myself this year.
Too busy to plan out a costume. But just for the record even though I’ve been known to
wear that Witch costume now and again, I truly do mean well.
