Halloween's past

Please sir posted about memorable Halloween costumes and also has some photos of some fastastical costumes you should check out. She told about her favorite when she was Pippi Longstockings. I always loved reading about Pippi's adventures when I was growing up so with a red head daughter how could I not dress her up as Pippi for Halloween. These are poor photos but they still hold the memories.

So I made her this costume when she was 8. I thought she was the perfect Pippi. (sorry Taylor, you're going to be pretty embarrassed about this post - because I found some great stuff hunting for this photo -haha)

She always loved playing the classic cat,

and as she got older, the classic witch.

Taylor loved to dress up, as every child does. You're lucky I don't have time - I'd find more. I think she still likes dressing up. In fact, I believe she's going to be Little Red Riding Hood this year (with a twist of course - wearing a red hoodie)

I loved Pippi too.

There was something about her attitude....
