Throwback Thursday: In Costume

Growing up, my brother and I dressed up for Halloween and went trick-or-treating.

At present time, we don't go trick-or-treating with our boys and are still not sure how we wa
nt to approach the celebrating or not of Halloween. Ah, but I'll save that for another post!

In the meantime, enjoy these pictures of me at about 3 & 4 years old dressing up as a really cute witch? (What was I, Mom?)


And Strawberry Shortcake. I found this before & after pic. Weren't we too cute? I don't think they make costumes with tiny eye slits like that anymore- isn't it, like, a hazard? I have no idea what my brother was dressing up as here either! Was he a Shirttail? Mom?

  3. At first I thought your brother was sitting next to a doll -- not you! :)

    Yeah, I think the plastic masks are a no-no now.

  4. I thought it was a doll next to him, too, until I clicked on it! lol

    Wasn't there some kind of Rainbow character? Could that've been it?

  6. Rainbow Brite, perhaps?
    WE do Halloween with our munchkins, but cautiously - no scary or occult costumes. But whatever works for your family, right?

  7. How cute you both were. At first I didn't know you had on a mask I thought how did you get yourself to look like that.
    I'm laughing so hard, I'm crying right now. Blonde I know.

  8. Ok...Amy is dying with laughter at her desk...thinking that you didn't have on a mask, trying to figure it out...(We are really busy working today).
    I am thinking, what was I thinking, putting that witch costume on you? I must have made that in my sleep...but you were so cute...I think Nate was Ernie from Sesame Street...he never did like to wear the masks...I was trying to think of where I stored that ceramic pumpkin sitting on the table. I painted that in ceramic class...it even had a light inside that you plug in...

  14. I had the same strawberry shortcake halloween outfit. And the next year, I had a plastic wonder woman one! I missed those days......I think every child of our generation had the plastic outfits.

  19. Love the costumes! I used to love Strawberry Shortcake. I had to be a clown for probably 5 years in a row when I was little, and I'm scared of clowns! How messed up is that?

  22. I just love the old pics :-) We always went growy up too, and I'm pretty sure I dressed up like in a "witchy-poo" costume once. Too funny. Sorry I haven't been around much in blog world...my life sometimes just takes over.
