Hallowe'en is over for another year. I've noticed that in town here over the years, people get decorated almost as much as they do for Christmas. All we ever had was ONE pumpkin with triangle eyes/nose and the square teeth carved at 6:00 p.m. in freezing temperatures when my dad got home from work!
My husband's secretary's kids came to show us their princess and monster costumes. She and her husband were dressed up too, to take them around to a few houses. They looked great. My sister used to do that and get my mom and dad to give out the candy while they went out. What fun and fabulous memories these kids will all have!
My sister is a hoot! (She taught me well!) When you teach school, there are all kinds of opportunities to dress up as different characters on various occasions. I think this pic was when "Cruella" came out during an assembly advertising a Hallowe'en Dance-a-thon. All the kids in her class couldn't believe it! To them, she rocked! I can't imagine one of my Gr. 4 teachers ever doing this in 1963.
I have always loved doing this sort of thing; my years at summer camp make it a natural response. It is so much fun, especially if you can find a partner-in-crime. That is sometimes difficult because not all teachers are hams. I wish I had taught at my sister's school!
Here's to dressing up and having fun!
