Halloween Costume Reader Submission

Yesterday and today I've been piecing together a Halloween costume for Zade and I. 

There is something so nostalgic about imagining-up a Halloween costume as the weather turns chilly.

When my siblings and I were children, our parents ruled that we could choose to dress up as anything we wanted for Halloween - but nothing scary. Ha! Like that was going to be an issue. 

I wanted to be....

a princess (of course)
a pumpkin
a Native American
Liesel (from the Sound of Music)
"a woman going to a ball" (my nine year old self felt gorgeous)
an artist
a hippie
 a Scottish lass
a peasant (definitely a downgrade from princess)
Jane (of Disney's Tarzan)
 the "State of Indiana" (seriously)
and last year....

Hobbes (from the comic strip Calvin and Hobbes)!

Do you have a favorite costume? If so, share it! 

E-mail me a picture at bethany.joy.shaw@gmail.com by October 30th and I'll post it on this blog on Halloween!
