Happy Halloweenie!

So, Halloween. I love it. When I was a kid, I remember thinking that I always had the most special costumes because my mom made them.

It's true that my costumes were special, but I just learned that my parents didn't dress me up until I was three - when my brother was 1. Apparently my first 3 Halloweens weren't that important. Geez!

This is when I was 2 - no costume, just an awesome face. This was my first Halloween dressing up. I'm not even sure we Trick-or-Treated. I was a princess, obviously. My brother was almost 1 and a skeleton.


The next year has to be one of our legendary Halloweens. The pumpkins are Bert and Ernie from Sesame Street - awesome, right? My brother and I are Raggedy Ann and Ragga Andy. A-dorable. We wore these costumes for 2 years because... hello, awesome.
This year we were clowns. My mom made these costumes and we won "Most Colorful Costume" awards at some party. Mickey the pumpkin won too.
This year we were with my cousin, Minnie Mouse. I was a princess (again) and my brother was a cowboy. This costume also got a repeat the next year because what girl doesn't want to be a princess again?
Next year - Pocahontas (the blonde version) and a Pirate. Awesome.


This year I was 9 - and I got my first store bought costume. Cheerleader - how original, I know. And also, this was the year my brother and I stopped posing together for pictures.
By the time I was 10, I was apparently too cool for Halloween. I was a hippie, and I'm pretty sure this was the last time I trick-or-treated.
And also, this was my brother's costume for that year... tell me this isn't a hilarious mad scientist.

Go over to Sarah's post and see her awesome Halloween costumes.

Did you have awesome costumes as a kid??

Happy Halloween! I hope your night is spook-tacular! (Also, our power went out for 3 hours last night. I was convinced it was some prank and - not gonna lie - I was waiting for a slasher to come bang on the windows. Yes, I'm 23 years old and I'm afraid of the dark.)

Happy Halloween! I love the pictures so much. When I was younger, my mom made us be in out town's Halloween parade and she always made us dress as a family. Once we were M and Ms. Once we were bowling pins and she was the bowling ball. It was sooo embarrassing at the time, but now I look back and it was really creative. Oh, and we always won the prize at the parade!

That's so awesome that you have pictures of past costumes. I can't wait to do that for my kids. We weren't allowed to celebrate until we were older and my mom rarely took pictures.

Your pictures are absolutely adorable though. :)
