The thing about Halloween is...I love it.
I know once you are over a certain age you are supposed to move on to witty/sexy/no Halloween costumes but I didn't. My family has always been pretty in to the holiday and my costumes were always about ten times more intense than all the other kids at school. My mom's true creativity and sewing skills come out the week of Halloween. When everyone was a store bought Power Ranger in Kindergarten, I was a handmade, modest, personalized Belle. My costumes have ranged from Belle to Lydia (from Beetlejuice) to Queen Amidala.
Now that my family is in the grown up stage but pre-kiddos we have started doing a haunted house at my parents. The neighborhood likes it and it is fun to be crazy with my siblings for a night. A hear people say that they are too grown-up for Halloween or dressing up is from kids but I say get over it! Have a blast, because you can bet we are having a blast over at the Godfrey house!
