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!
