We look at Halloween really as a time to dress up as our favorite characters. Over the years we have had Mister Rogers, prairie girls, Shirley Temple, ballerinas, Little Red Riding Hood, and my all-time favorite, Betsy Ross.
This year we had characters from the Wizard of Oz. (Cheryl M. you win the gold star with your guess a few weeks back!) Emily was Dorothy, Elisabeth was Glinda the Good Witch, and Ethan, of course, was the Tin Man. He wanted "to make smoke come out of his head." I made all the costumes from McCalls and Simplicity patterns. They were fun...but I am glad they are finished!!! The kids had a fantastic time tonight and they will continue to use the outfits for dress-up clothes.
