Halloween is one of my favorite holidays!!!! It holds a special place in my heart for many reasons, but mostly I just love seeing kids show up at my house in their costumes. I also enjoy helping my children come up with awesome homemade costumes every year. Sure you can go out to the Halloween stores now-a-days and buy some pretty awesome costumes, but making them is so much more fun! Over the years I have helped my children become robots, mime's, mummies, freaks, bloody scary things, hobos, and so much more.
My favorite Halloween character has to be Jack Skeleton for several reasons --- one of them very special. 1) I just love the character. He has such a big heart for being such a "king" at scaring people. 2) He is a lot like me. He is long and thin like I am, and he has long legs like a spider, just like me:) 3) I dressed up like him on the evening my husband proposed me many years ago! (That's the special part!)
So in honor of Halloween and Jack Skelton, here is a drawing I did of him and a picture of me dressed as him all those many years ago!
What will you dress up as this Halloween? I hope you do. It's so much fun!
