Having grown up in an era of home made, our costumes were thrifty, fun and very creative. I remember my dad reaching into the fireplace and taking a had full of soot and proceeded to wipe it on my face!! Next my plaid dress was stuffed with a pillow, he tightening up my belt, tied a scarf on my head and sent me out the door... as Aunt Jemima!! I laugh about it now but as a little girl I was the grumpiest pancake you'd ever seen!
Between getting costumes ready, making decorations, prepping the house and deciding on tricks or treats to hand out it will be a busy month end for everyone. Here's a few reminders of the fun we had as kids... carving pumpkins, embarrassing costumes, great parties and of course all the sexy moms! Enjoy!
