Costume Fun with Sharron!

my mom's entry for Terrorific Tuesday!

This is my mom’s entry for this week’s Terrorific Tuesday. Here’s what she had to say about making these costumes…

“One of my favorite things about sewing is being able to make most any my grand children ask for. Often there is not a pattern for things they dream up and I have to wing it. Last year Taylor had her heart set on being a pink bunny for Halloween, fortunately McCalls pattern #8593 made my job easy.”

Mom, you always make the best costumes. I know that it will be something they look back on that will make them smile!


To be a kid again this Halloween…


So it’s not everyday you see kiddos on my blog, but this is an adorable pic of my niece and nephew, Brock and Taylor as a Pink Bunny and Indiana Jones! My mom the oh-so-talented seamstress made both of these costumes like she does every year for them. If this isn’t super cute, I don’t know what is!!!

I really hope they enjoy these years dressing up and trick or treating. Halloween is such a magical time in a child’s life. Even though you know I love Halloween and get excited by the smallest little thing, I miss the excitement I felt as a kid around this time of year. Little things like going trick or treating and rummaging through candy afterwards, getting to play games at a fall festival, and feeling the anticipation of a Halloween party at school, are things I look back fondly and wistfully on. Excitement back then was so pure and simple, but now adding on daily tasks and struggles weighs me down a lot, and I’m sure it does others too.

I really need to make it my goal to not get to overwhelmed by the Holiday that I don’t get to enjoy it. Maybe simple things like going on a ghost walk, eating pumpkin goods, and just sitting in the dark as my hot pink and orange lights glow is the thing I need to do to reconnect with that little girl I once was.

What are you going to do to reconnect with your inner child this Halloween?
