Scenery: Halloween at Cross Roads Village (Flint, MI)These pictures are of my great-grandchildren on a trip to Cross Roads Village, a 1865 village in Flint Michigan. Everyone goes trick or treating no matter how old. It is a lot of fun!
Halloween Pet Costume: Minnie MouseThis costume was made by reusing several things we had on hand. The skirt was from a Poodle Skirt Girl Costume. We cut the top attached shirt and vest off and used just the skirt. The t-shirt was one we already had at the house.
Halloween Costume: Dora the ExplorerNothing to it, I just got a pink shirt, orange shorts, yellow socks, white shoes, backpack with purple straps, and I made a map by rolling up a piece of paper and drawing the eyes, eyebrows and mouth. I found "Boots" the monkey on Ebay.
Halloween Costume: GypsyPeasant Skirt, black long sleeve shirt, long scarf and old costume jewelry. None of this costume had to be made.

Savannah in Tomboy CostumeLast year I found it hard to make a costume for my daughter Savannah. So I gathered together some of my oldest son clothing. I dressed her like a Tom Boy. Take a look.
Making CostumesWhen making a costume, I have found the best place to get strange clothes is the Thrift Stores, and also have a husband willing to dress up in anything you buy. Enjoy the picture!
Individualized Carved PumpkinsThis is the jack-o-lantern that I carved for my 8 month old son. It is a real pumpkin and was hand carved using only wood carving tools and a rotary tool. My family and I carved an additional 4 pumpkins the same way, each to reflect on the persons interests.
Pumpkin Vase as CenterpieceThis is what we did for a center piece for Halloween. We carved out the inside and put flowers inside of it. It does last for about 2 weeks.
No Bones About ItGreat way to start the day of Halloween! Fry two pieces of bacon in a skillet. Drain on paper towels. Cut each bacon slice in half; arrange the four pieces in an "X" shape on a small plate.
