Used to be we’d concoct halloween costumes out of stuff around the house. Contact paper, a lace doily, whatever.

And not a lot of planning went into it. I’m not saying I think that was better than they way things are now. I’ve just lived long enough to recognize the difference in the times. And this post might simply be my excuse to share this picture of what Ben chose for his costume at the Monster Ball this year.

Yup…that’s my boy Ben (Dover)!

  3. WOW-I just love it when other people are “inappropriate.” It makes me smile. That is pretty funny Sherry. I also adore the cute little homemade costumes.

    What a great pic of Ben and Quinn. They look so freaked out, I can’t stop laughing. Perfect for Halloween.
