Obligatory Halloween Post

Halloween's such a fun time of year--I can't wait until we have our own house so we can distribute candy and see all the costumes. I got to go trick-or-treating with the boys I work with last year (they went as Mario and Luigi :D ) and it's always interesting seeing the creativity, and the trends.

I wasn't terribly creative with my costumes as a kid. I loved cats, and I think at least 50% of the time I went as some sort of cat. Starting with one of my earliest costumes, this leopard suit my mom made for me (I believe I'm five or six in this pic):

I went as a black cat a few times, and once I decided to be completely original and was a *white* cat. Heh.

When I was really really little, I was Strawberry Shortcake (that might have been my first). I was a witch at least once. In grade seven I went as a bat, with wings that attached to my wrists so I could flap them (made again by my mom).

My last Halloween (age 12), for reasons I cannot recall, I went as a gypsy (and there's my mom, ever helpful with costuming, putting on my make-up):

Happy Halloween, everyone!
