My Favourite Halloween Moments – Win with Nestle! #favouritehalloween

Parents really are the unsung heroes of Halloween, we are the ones who rush out to buy the costumes and candies, decorate, send goodies for classroom parties and get slimy carving pumpkins. But this is 2012 and we have it pretty easy actually! When I was little it was up to my poor mom to come up with something creative and fun and she couldn’t just pop over to the local store to buy it! She sewed and crafted far more than she ever wanted to, I imagine and that is the real hero of Halloween right there! She even whipped herself up a costume most years and handed out candy in disguise! Yes, my mom had more Halloween spirit than I do for sure! 

Here’s a fun shot of the early years! This is my brother and me ready to head out for tricks and treats. My brother is dressed up as a witch with orange hair apparently, and I think I am supposed to be Little Red Riding Hood, even though my hood looks more like a witches hat too! lol oh well, can’t say I would come up with anything better for my own boys!

  2. I also remember my mom hand-sewing costumes for my brother & I one Hallowe’en. You are right about unsung hero!

    I will never forget we were all bad for my mom as she tried getting us ready for Halloween and dad said we all had to have a spank. So there we were lined up to get a wack on the bum. We each got one and then he took us out crying to go trick or treating even though none of us wanted to go. He made us! LOL

  4. My mom made a lot of our Halloween costumes too when we were kids. I probably will some day too but right now my little one is getting whatever costume on bought on sale at the end of the season last year!

  5. Such a great contest! Halloween is always our favourite celebration. Some of the costumes submitted look hilarious, others a bit scary lol

  6. Awww! I love this!! You guys are pretty darn cute!
    but, I’m so sad that I don’t have any pics from childhood Halloweens!
