This explains it...

My love for Halloween has deep roots from an awesome mom who made it so fun for us! She would go all out in planning and making our costumes. And of course, she would dress up as well....
I totally remember this year as a bunny and loving it! It's the closest I've been to being a "Playmate". My mom was an adorable baby and my little brother, Evan, was Mickey Mouse and Eric is self explanatory...
This was a fun year! We went down to our Playworld (remember those?) and they had a costume contest and we won! I was a mermaid (before The Little Mermaid), Eric was a table, and Evan was a dinosaur...
LOVED my costume this year and I wish I still had it. I was in fourth grade and I was Carmen Miranda...My mom did such an amazing job on this one...My mom was Shirley Temple (so hilarious!) and Evan was Elvis...
Was sick with the flu and couldn't go trick or treating...I feel nauseated just looking at this picture...
I was a girl in a bathtub this year....this was the year when most kids weren't dressing up anymore and I was still going strong...
My Mom would dress up for years as a witch and pass out candy. The neighborhood kids loved it and we would literally get hundreds of trick-or-treaters!!!....

Thanks Mom for years of Halloween fun! And the saga continues....

Yes! Keep up the tradition and little Emree one day will follow in your footsteps too. I remember the year you were Carmen Miranda at the ward party. It's the first time I really noticed you at church and I thought, that girl is way cool! Great story and pics!
