Dragging My Halloween Feet
My Jenifer could be the poster child for Halloween in this picture.
I remember this was her "first" and she thoroughly embraced the idea of people giving her candy.
She was eating the candy almost as fast as it was being dropped into her little pumpkin bucket.
Did you notice the sucker stuck to her thigh?
Some years later... Jessica and Jenifer ready for their evening of trick or treating.
Jessica was a "devil woman" and Jeni, a rabbit.
I still have Jessica's cape in my box of Halloween goodies. Probably, because it was such a bear to sew that slippery stuff! But it turned out beautifully.
The inside was black satin, so the following year she used it again when she was a witch.
Jeni's rabbit costume doubled as cold weather sleepwear--minus the hat, gloves, booties and over sized bow, of course.
She grew very fond of this outfit, (it was made of robe velor) that we changed it us just slightly and the next year she was a cat.
I made the bags from one of those panels you get at the fabric store.
I've had "get out halloween decorations" on my list for well over a week now. It's doesn't have the sense of urgency that it once did with children at home. When the girls were little, decorations had to be put out on the 1st!!
But I'll get there.
