Remembering Halloween

When my girls were little, the best part of Halloween for me, were always our conversations about what they wanted their costume to be that year. They had definite ideas and because they knew I could sew, they also knew I could make what they imagined. It was fun to go back and look at the costumes I made and to remember their excitement. This Tinkerbell costume was one of my favorites.

Remember the Beanie Babie craze? No sewing involved; just some ears, a tail and a tag around the neck.

A vest with fringe and stars, an easy pull on skirt, a cowboy hat and boots made a cute cowgirl costume.

Sometimes it was the accessories that made the costumes. Curella Deville and a little hippie girl look cool in their sunglasses.

From princesses to Minnie Mouse, to even a Twister board dress and hat; we have had a variety of cute and creative costumes. It was fun, taking an idea from my daughters imagination and coming up with a Halloween costume they were excited to wear.

Have a great Halloween weekend!

  1. So cute! There was so many years we had snow on halloween always loved the warmer of costumes! Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Seeing your pictures makes me think back to costumes that my kids have had over the years. I'm tempted to go dig out some pics of my own. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Cute post! I enjoyed seeing your girls. Those were fun days for all of you, weren't they? Heartwarming post!

  4. I miss those times too - we always had so much fun planning and executing the costumes - always dressed up along with the kids too.

  5. How cute is that beanie baby?! So clever!

  6. This brings back so many memories when I my kids were young:) I am also an empty nester and enjoying the memories and the adventures of retirement:) Come on over for a visit sometimes. (I also have a blog hop called Freedom Fridays)

  7. I'm sure it was fun dressing up girls. I had boys and was stuck with Woody and Buzz Light Year. LOL

  8. Oh...I love the little Cruella De Ville..."if she doesn't kill you her evil twin will!" (Insert music here!) How nice that you could make the costumes! The first picture is so similar to one I have of my daughter at the same age, looking out the window in a ballerina costume. I think she liked handing out the candy more than going out herself!

  13. Oh, so many memories for you! Me too. Oh how excited my girls would be. My grands do not participate in Halloween so I think my costume days are over.

  17. Aren't they the cutest? I love their costumes and by the look on their faces I think that they did too.

  18. Great costumes. I have almost the same picture of my daughter looking out the front window in a fairy costume. Hope your weekend was great!

  19. A fun review from the Halloween's of the past. Thanks for stopping by, I agree the Michigan fall was very pretty this year, Laura

  20. Had to come check out your Halloween "walk down memory lane". Cute favorite are the Curella Devilee and the hippie. It's funny how the costumes go with what's trendy at the time or, of course, the traditional stuff. Cute post!
