Hello friends!I am planning on posting Part II of my trip on Thursday this week, so please do come by and check out more of my trip to Santa Fe and Taos, more pictures! ( not to mention it also being My Refined Linkup as well)Hope you enjoyed the weekend. We went to a Hallo-wine Festival Saturday, wine tasting, food trucks, music, kid's events etc. Brought the puppies and it was a good time.I hope you enjoy Halloween tonight, if you celebrate it. Hubby, me and the pups have decided to sit outside and pass out candy. I was joking with hubby when I told him, " Now, we only give out candy to the kids with the homemade costumes, ok" None of that, " Draw-a-smile-on-a-white-sheet "Im a Ghost" -kind of costume!" Kidding. I do remember though, back in the day, when my mom made our costumes. I was a rabbit , a black cat, a monk ( and won first prize as a contest) yes, Mom sewed me a brown gown with hood, I had a white beard, and wore a rope belt, as I chanted Gregorian Chant while in a circle with the other kids. I also remember First Grade when mom used ribbed cardboard around my body, I had a black bodysuit, and used my Disney cap as the make-shift trash can lid stuck to my cap( beanie). Dad has spray painted trashcan on the body of my costume, and then I remember stapling or gluing paper cartons of milk, candy wrappers and more to my "can". It was a pretty cool costume now that I remember it.
