Halloween Memories

When my daughter was young we loved creating her Halloween costume. Each year we careful considered our plan of action and gathered our materials for the perfect costume. One of our favorites was the homemade authentic Indian costume which won first place in the town Halloween parade!  I bought a few yards of brown felt, folded it in half and cut a hole for her head, added a cut fringe bodice, and applied beads, feathers and puffy paint animal symbols.  We collected a large walking stick from the woods and I applied rawhide and collected feathers on the top to the stick.

I remember when she walked into the auditorium and everyone’s head turned. She was so proud of that costume and to this day, 20 years later, that costume still hangs in the closet.

Now, that she’s grown and married I miss those Halloween creations and Trick or Treating around the neighborhood. If you still have little one’s enjoy your time together you’re creating memories that will last a lifetime.
