As kids, my little sister and I would pick out a costume from the store or our mom would make us something. I can remember my favorite costume as a kid was a homemade one of a crayon. I called my parents this week and they dug up a few pictures for me to share. My sis is dressed as Jem (did anyone else watch that cartoon?) and I'm sporting my awesome purple felt crayon costume. We are both carrying our Cabbage Patch Kids who are also dressed up- hers is a princess and mine is a Halloween clown. We loved our Cabbage patch Kids in a big way so mom sewed them special outfits! Welcome to 1987:

Now, back to 2011. We are dressing up at work, so I decided to get crafty and make a costume. I found this costume idea over on Parenting.com. All it took was a bit of shopping, cutting, gluing, then running out of glue and using iron on tape. Of course I also made myself some orange and yellow bracelets and earrings. I can't go to the bead store with out matching accessories, can I?

Finally, I leave you with a photo of Oscar's first Halloween. Puppy cuteness coming at you...

I would love to hear about your favorite costume blast from the past or what you did this year. For now, Happy Halloween!
