AMANDA, TONY AND REBEKAH HALLOWEEN 1979
Previous years I'd done easy things like a ghost, cowboy, fireman etc but this year I went all out.
TONY, 7- THE PUPPY, COMPLETE WITH EYE-SPOT AND LEASH.
My first thought was that these would become pajamas but I was so happy with them that they became the first residents of the Halloween box.
REBEKAH, 6- THE SWEET KITTY
AND AMANDA, 3- AS A LEOPARD
THIS IS A VERY TIRED LEOPARD AFTER A TIRING NIGHT OF MARAUDING THE NEIGHBORHOOD!
AND YOURS TRULY IN MY 27-YEAR-OLD TOMATO-Y GLORY!
(When I ran across this tomato costume last week I'd forgotten that it was this old and I was that young.)
Over the years I've added more costumes: the Fruit of the Loom guys (a bunch of grapes and an apple), the tortoise and the hare, salt and pepper, pirates, hula girl, shepherds, Tinkerbell (a hand-me-down from Sue), an old woman and many more. Each Halloween we'd pull the box out and have a costume parade... and I loved it.
My favorite will always be the years Bek and the boys would come to visit. Stuart would usually have us in tears of laughter. I searched in vain for my blog post about this and I just now remembered- it's not on my blog but tucked safely in one of my many scrapbooks (you remember those days before blogging?)
So I was happy when Camille asked if the kids could come over and *shop* in Grammie's costume box for Halloween. Yes, please!
But this was our unexpected bonus... we put Fiona in her Auntie Amanda's 35 year old costume. (And see Mama-Camille's cute *costume*?)
What do you think this little costume would say about this?
Grammie says it makes her heart very happy!
