Costumes of Halloween Past….

Since my children no longer want home made Halloween costumes, I thought I would get nostalgic and take a look back at all of the costumes I had made over the years.  It was a lot of fun finding and looking at these pictures.  As I went back in time Annabelle and Sam got younger and it made me miss them as babies and made me realize how fast the time does go!  Maybe next year I can convince them to let me make their costumes….maybe!

Annabelle's 2nd Halloween, I made this flower costume out of felt.

And Sam was a goldfish! I used a TON of cupcake liners and hot glue for this costume and I remember I had a really hard time finding gold and yellow. But it turned out so cute!
