Halloween Fun.

Because Halloween is just around the corner, I thought I would go down Memory Lane and  take you with me.

This was 1955... I'm in the middle with my Kangaroo sister and a family friend. 

Either that is two different years, or we ditched one little guy for another.  We just didn't look that excited about being there did we?

Big jump forward to when I had Trick or Treaters of my own. 

Daughter # 1.   After that, she was a cheerleader for about 5 years in a row.   I liked when I could dress them, which makes me think my mother dressed us in the first pictures.

I don't think I ever bought a costume.  To me it was more fun to put one together out of stuff we had.  They probably wanted the one in the box from the store.

If you notice that the little Gypsy's hair and the ghoul's hair is the same, it did have to come from somewhere.

"If I Could Turn Back Time" now,  would I?  Would you?

Now I have these guys to watch get excited about their Halloween costumes. 

Have fun guys.  Take pictures and call your Nana.  I want to know all about it.

No, I don't think I'd go back - would you? I see that with every generation you have great pictures - costumes and loves. sandie

I'd go back to when my children were little "in a New York minute" - the happiest time of my life!

Loved the photos.
I think I was always a ghost at Halloween. We had no money for costumes when I was a kid and a white ghost always meant "Casper is on the loose".

I enjoyed walking down memory lane with ya'!

Yeah, I think I'd turn back time, if I could. I'd like to be 20 one more time! Life was so good back then!

I don't know why you had trouble commenting, but I recently had to switch to Google Chrome because of that same thing.

Adorable! There is nothing like Halloween to bring out the kid in everyone....and the fun in every kid...except maybe Disney World.

Yowzers! Are you the fabulous biker babe? Nice gams!

(Sorry. I was going to leave a nice innocuous comment, since you don't know me, but those legs! Nice!)

Growing up, I always wanted the store-bought costumes, but looking back now? I realize that the most fun was had when I put together my own or when my folks did so. And the photos of the homemade Halloweens are the best, warmest, and funniest. And also give me the warmest memories.

Well we should have some intersting pictures for you this year! I hope I can pull off the make up job that is required.
I wouldn't turn back time ..other to the year the boys were 3 and 4. They were so funny

I really like the pumpkin painting in the banner... yours?

Ahh.. the good ol' days - my brothers and I always made our own costumes too - my mom had a big box of very miscellaneous stuff... from old army jackets to wigs, to (shhhhh fake boobs) other things.

We got pretty creative - and yeah, we crossed-dressed a few times - but it was always a huge joke.
