Will you dress up for Halloween?
When I was young, I couldn't wait for Halloween to arrive. I loved being outside when it was dark and watching all the other kids and parents as they Trick or Treated for their candy bounty. I was always a ballerina. Yes! Tutu, tights and all. Of course I couldn't wear my ballet slippers, so mom would let me where my special white patent leather shoes. What a fun night it was.
Now I'm older and it's rare that I dress up anymore...I can't really say why. My kids have fun with it now. Just a few days ago I was going through our closets and found a Halloween costume that belonged to my youngest son. How it managed to stay there and not be passed to someone else, I'll never know. So now, I've got a really cute, plushy giraffe costume listed on Ebay, just waiting to find a new lucky boy or girl to costume. If you want more details, please check it out.
