The Halloween Costume and a Bit of History

Halloween is big for William, though it's never been one of my favorite holidays. I'll admit that I have had a great deal of fun while sharing in the costume-making each year. Here's a bit of Halloween history.

Kindergarten (06) - Thomas the Tank Engine

First Grade (07) - Spider

Second Grade (08) - Vampire

Third Grade (09) - Bird



  1. It's fun to watch him change - he got his inspiration from more concrete sources early on, and now he's branching out on his own.

    I have to say, I'm not that fond of Halloween, either (and we seem to zoom right into Christmas the next day), as it seems to promote kind of a "gimme," feel, but costuming is so much fun. I keep thinking we need to come up with another big holiday that encourages the imaginative dressing...

  2. Those costumes are fabulous!

  3. What fun costumes. Thanks for sharing! ((William))

  4. How fabulous! Tricia, he looks so much like you, too. Has your smile!
