Have I mentioned I love Halloween?

I'm trying to think of costumes for me and the hubs for the party we're going to on Saturday. We have a bin full of wigs and hats and other bits of costumes, so I'm sure we'll be able to cobble something together. It gets harder every year though to come up with something. It's not like when I was a kid and knew before summer ended what I wanted to be.

This was my best costume of all time. I was six and my dad made this from a pattern. On a sewing machine! I'm still in awe. I don't think he's sewn anything since, but how could you top this? Behold my Cabbage Patch Kid costume...

It was the talk of the first grade, I tell you.

Then there was this year...

Whaaa? I think my face says it all. And no, that giant inflated pumpkin thing is not hanging on the door as Mark initially thought. It's on my head. A dollar to anyone who can tell me what I was exactly.

If you're dressing up this year, what are you going to be? Any best and/or worst costume stories?


  1. That Cabbage Patch costume is amazing! Kudos to your talented dad!!

  2. Thanks Kasey! I will pass it along!

  3. The Great Pumpkin!!!!! However your Cabbage Patch Kid costume is WONDERFUL! ~ Gwyn

  4. That is adorable!


  5. "Umpkin Pumpkin." I was subjected to the same costume in my youth. My neighbor pretended to pick her nose with Umpkin's giant yellow schnoz, and I cried for the rest of the night. There were costumes for all the characters printed on your fetching tunic (my brother was the drunk-looking green monster that same year) but I can't remember any of their names.
