29 Oct Halloween Memories and Fun Costumes
Halloween is just around the corner, and I’ll be dressing up the pups this year. I am sharing today some of my favorite Halloween memories!
Gibson, after being spared last year, from dressing up, is ready to get back into the Ewok zone.
“Princess Truffles” is now “Princess Leia” 🙂
Pumpkin picking and getting into the Spirit of the Season, with my sister and niece.
Hubby help leading the way out of the corn maze. No one asks me, as I have such a poor sense of direction!
I had to dig up this old photo of my brother Tim and I when my mom would make our costumes. He was a leopard, I was a bunny. Mom sewed all of our costumes. I will have to find more for next year, as all of the old photographs are at my mom’s house in Pittsburgh. My dad loved to show slides as well back then.
Its the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, is a classic book or show to watch that made Halloween even more special at our house.
This is a fantasy movie that my hubs and I enjoy. Classic Tim Burton.
This was one of the scariest movies I saw as a kid. I thought it was great though! Did you ever see Spielberg’s Poltergiest?
I love this Antique Victorian Animated Spooky Phone for Halloween Decor. I can picture a kid saying, “That’s a telephone?”
Only $15 at Target, and there is still some time:-)
One of My Favorite Candies to Get as a Kid on Halloween.
My Favorite candy when I was a kid trick or treating was the Clark Bar. I am not talking those little bit sized nibbles you get in a bag today! No, when we would trick or treat, we would use pillowcases, and come home and all 4 of us kids would dump our stash on the floor. Clark Bars were a hot commodity, along with Reeses Cups, although, unless your from Pittsburgh, you may not have heard of my favorite candy.
History of the Clark Bar
“The Clark Bar is a candy bar consisting of a crispy peanut butter/spun taffy core (originally with a caramel center) and coated in milk chocolate. It was the first American “combination” candy bar to achieve nationwide success. The Clark Bar was introduced in 1917 by David L. Clark , an Irish Immigrant, and was popular during and after both World Wars. It was manufactured in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, by the original family-owned business until 1955. ” Courtesy of Wiki**
Tell me about Halloween when you grew up. Did your family make the costumes? What was your favorite candy?
I’d love to hear from you in the comments!
Have a great Halloween weekend!
