You know how you start at one point on the internet and end up going from here to here to here … and end up somewhere you have no idea how you got there? Yeah, me too.
That’s what just happened to me. I ended up at an on-line magazine for Mormons “LSD Living”, and saw this article about really cute Halloween costumes for little kids.
I remember always trying to find some new, creative ideas for costumes when my children were small.
So for you who still have small children, here is a link to that idea-filled article:
I have fond memories of Halloween when I was a little kid.
We were very generic back then. I especially liked this costume because it meant I got to wear lipstick. Wahoo!!
I’m guessing you have some great memories of costumes you wore too — and are making some great costumes and memories for your own children.
From the past-raising-kids side of things, I can tell you that any work or inconvenience you dedicate to making memories for your children, you will be soooo glad you did it when they are grown and gone.

My two sisters and my brother came for a visit a couple weeks ago. For five days we visited, laughed, ate and played Yahtzee.
Betty is 82 and Martha is 79. Maybe I’m biased, but I think they look wonderful for their age!
Hubby took a picture of the four of us right after Jimmy got off his plane …
and a few days later, he took some at home …
but then he told us to look at each other so we would looked more “connected” — and looking at each other made us laugh. So it did make for a good picture — smart Hubby!
We had a great time. If you have siblings who are far flung, I definitely recommend a reunion like this. It was a wonderful experience.
Betty, Jean, Me, Martha and Jimmy — Easter, 1948
The only thing that would have made it better is if our sister Jean, who passed away a few years ago, could have been there too. But she was there in our hearts and in many of our memories — many of her were about her making us laugh.
