My lucky grandboys have a mom who makes them animal suits for Halloween. She asks them what they want to be, and then adjusts a basic pattern to their whims. Made from fun fur, these costumes are cozy and her family has built up an enviable collection. This year we have Puppy (4 years) and Raccoon (7 years). (Raccoon carries his baby in his pouch.)
Oona started making costumes when she was quite young. Above, spider, age 11.
From the same old photo album, a snap of Jay designing a not too scary face for the pumpkin.
While it's nice to look back on, I do not miss the Halloween hoopla. Be safe and have fun everyone.
