This week for the A&I team we were asked to blog about our most memorable Halloween.
I'd have to say that the one Halloween that stands out in my mind is the year my older sister and I both dressed up as black cats. We wore black tights and a black leotard. It seems like we wore black patent leather shoes but I can't remember for sure. Unfortunately, mom didn't have the time to sew black tails on to our leotards. You tend to not have a lot of time for things like that when you own a home and are a single mom with 2 little kids. Mom put makeup on our faces to look like we had cat whiskers. One of the reasons why this Halloween stands out in my mind is that we both froze our behinds off going door to door getting candy. We wore coats but then took them off just before we got to the door so that the people could see our costumes. We were still really cold though. Normally we'd do around 3 blocks or so before going home. We lived on a hill and we'd usually go up or down one side then go to the other streets and then get the other side of the street on our way back home. This year I think we did 2 blocks...maybe. We never dressed so skimpily ever again after that Halloween. We wanted candy but we couldn't wait to get home. Thankfully it didn't snow that year for Halloween but it was cold enough as it is! In Colorado it wasn't entirely unheard of for it to snow around this time of year. We did however, get lots of comments about our costumes.
