This weeks' Show Us Your Life topic is "Costumes". Here are a few family favorites from before my time.
This is Mommy's all-time, most favorite, bestest costume ever! Mimi made it for her when she was a little girl. Mommy says she remembers being so excited as she watched Mimi spend days gluing cotton balls to footed jammies...and even more excited when she won the "Most Adorable" prize at her church's Fall Carnival.
Mommy had big plans to make a very similar costume for me this year, but she changed her mind when people kept asking, "Won't she just try to eat the cotton balls?"
(Oh, you guys know me too well! )
Here's a more recent costume of Mommy's. The school she taught at often had "Book Character Dress-Up Day" on Halloween.
Can you tell what book "character" Mommy is supposed to be?She's the coconut tree from "Chicka, Chicka, Boom, Boom"!
Mommy came home from teaching last Halloween to find Daddy wearing this little number: Their small groups theme for Trunk or Treat was "candy"...so daddy decided to use a TV box to make a costume of his favorite candy! I hear he was a big hit at Trunk or treat.
Remember this pumpkin from a few weeks ago?
As of right now, this is the only costume I've ever worn.
It's not my Halloween costume, though!
That one will be debuted at Trunk or Treat this weekend...so you'll have to check back here on Saturday night if you want to see it!
