All in the Family

I was just reading Talk To Me Tuesday over on Tip Junkie, where there's a post about family-themed Halloween costumes---and I remembered the one-and-only time my family had a sort-of theme going on at Halloween. I don't have a picture of this (sorry) because it was at least ten years ago.

This was when my sister was still a baby. My mom dressed her in a black sweatsuit, with a white stripe down the back, and made a stuffed skunk tail that fastened around my sister's waist. Then my dad, who works at an oil refinery, borrowed a gas mask and a hazmat suit from one of his coworkers. Good thing my sister was too little to remember it later, huh?

  9. What a sweet idea. I remember once my mom rented a rabbit costume for me from a local skating arena. It was fun, but around here it gets pretty cold so the rabbit had to wear a jacket!
