The anticipation and preparation for Halloween always started months in advance in our family, when my grandmother would come over and ask us what we wanted to dress up as and then proceed to work her magic to make us whatever costume we had managed to dream up. It was a My Little Pony for about 3 years, a ballerina mouse, Queen Elizabeth I, one of the 12 dancing princesses, and my personal favorite Maleficent, amongst many others. The art of costumes has changed over the years but the planning and excitement is still in the air every October. Suze has been planning Aiden’s first Halloween costume from about the moment he came home. She was set on the cutest little pumpkin costume but that was until the plump little green dinosaur costume popped up on the racks. Aiden was quite happy to wear his costume pre-halloween when we saw him and even rocked the hood up for us. So cute!
