Memory Lane Friday is a weekly blog carnival where you can blog about your past memories and link up. Some weeks have themes, some do not, but either way everyone is welcome! This week's topic is Halloween, Part 1. As you might guess, I really like Halloween :-)
I guess back in my infancy, parents didn't really dress up babies for Halloween. Or if they did, they didn't waste film on the cuteness like they do today. At any rate, I have no pictures of myself before about age 4 or 5 in Halloween costume.
So the earliest pic I have is my witch costume, which my mom made for me. In addition to looking really green, my cheeks look really puffy, so I'm kind of wondering if I wasn't sick or something. It was about this age that my mom made the coolest ghost cake for my class at school! It had this delicious marshmallowy frosting, and the eyeballs were eggshells. She had put something in the eggshells that she lit on fire, and it made the eyes glow. I was fascinated by those eyes! The second picture I am the dog to the left with my friend Erin in the unicorn costume. I loved my dog costume, but I loved that unicorn costume more, so my mom made me a horse costume the following year.
