Happy Halloween! Today is the day of tricks and treats - hopefully more treats then tricks. Seeing little ones and not so little ones dressed in costumes. Halloween always brings back memories of my father who would take my sister and me trick or treating in costumes he made for us - my favorite has always been the Miss Piggy costume he crafted for my 3 year old self, with ears and a snout. My dad always wore a homemade devils hood, with a widow's peak and red horns. I am a bit nostalgic for homemade costumes this year as everyone seems to buy their kids costumes now a days. I hope that when I have my own little ones I can take the time to make them masquerades from scratch and love.
