Creativity was never my strong suit
I've read several blogs lately showing the really cute and creative Halloween costumes that moms and grandmoms have made for their kids and grandkids. I love seeing all the cute ideas people come up with but it leaves me feeling a little deficient in the creative talent department and it takes me back to my first attempt at creating a Halloween costume for one of my children.
When my son was 2 I came up with this creation made out of a paper bag, some paint and a few cotton balls.
I apparently thought it was so great that I saved it for my daughter to wear 2 years later, or maybe I made a new one....I don't remember.
Yes, they have seen these pictures and yes, they have given me a hard time about the way I dressed them up.
What can I say? For a young military family in the early '70s at least the price was right.
I'm sure my creativity gene will kick in one of these days.
