I'm a crafty sort and so most years I tried to make Daniel's costumes. My favorite year was 1993. Daniel was like most young boys of that time, enamored of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. That year he chose to dress up as Michaelangelo.
Here's Daniel telling his Tia all about how
Michaelangelo would protect us when we went
out after dark. That's me in the background
putting the finishing touches on the costume.
OMG! So adorable!
Daniel's costume was a hit! This was one of my earliest sewing projects and I was so proud of the outcome. He wore that costume all night and wanted to wear it for months after Halloween was over. In fact, he kept the stuffed shell for years after that using it as a bed pillow.

Here's to all of you with little ones! Though it can be stressful, please remember to cherish days like today, because they pass quickly and little ones are soon grown and having little ones of their own. Have a safe and happy halloween!
The scariest thing about this halloween is realizing how quickly the
kids have grown up!
