Halloween Costumes

So last night was our Ward Halloween Party, and we all dressed up.
Yes, Dan actually wore that to a church function. I think only one kid asked him what he was; I don't know what he told him. It was a fun night. Dan and I have never dressed up before, and we decided it was time.

Speaking of costumes, here are some oldies but goodies:

Here I am at two with my sister. I am the younger blonder one believe it or not.

Now at 4: (It's weird to think Tyler is the age I was in this picture)

And here is the whole gang in 1984, which makes me 8. I was a Cabbage Patch Kid. I had gotten one the year before for Christmas, and my mom made my costume. My doll has a matching one. Halloween is the only time my mom ever sewed. It is also the only time I am aware of that she swore too. Love ya mom! And did you catch that David my little bro is wearing the costume that I was wearing in the picture above? I think it got some good mileage over the years!

And those are all the pictures I could find from the past. That's it. I couldn't even tell you what else I dressed up as over the course of my childhood. All I remember is vaguely Trick-or-Treating down our street and not wanting to go to the house with the scary dogs. Ahh! What fond memories.

When I saw this post your text appeared on the screen before your pictures did. I had no idea what to expect with Dan's costume after your comment. I admit, I laughed out loud when I saw his costume. Good for you guys for dressing up.

Great costumes. I haven’t dressed up in years. Dan and Ty should have had that costume 12 years ago.

Brenda told me I had to see this....she was right! Man it's just like the old days (remember the vests?).

Anyway, good to see that you guys have a great sense of humor. Nice to see you wearing that to a ward party...good times.

Later
