Trick or Treat

Trick or Treat for Halloween

Trick or Treat for Halloween
I'm knocking at your door.

Don't know what songs kids sing today while out on the streets Trick or Treating, but as a young girl this was the song that we sang years ago. I only remember two Halloween costumes. My cousin Peg and I were Beatniks. Easy costume - large white sweatshirt and black tights. The other costume, I remember, was putting on a sheet and becoming a Ghost. Again, we may have had awesome costumes as kids, but I don't remember:) Of course, when you work in an elementary school, there were many Book Character Parades on Halloween Day. My favorite was the year many of us wore white shirts, white pants, black dots, dog ears and were 101 Dalmatians. 
Of course, DS was a dalmatian that year, too.

We are getting lots of mileage out of Rusty's costume. Yesterday, we attended a Halloween fundraiser. He was quite the star in his hotdog costume.

Wishes you with lots of treats!

Hi Becky,
I love your son as a dalmatian. You were both so cute! Great post. Karmen

Rusty's costume is adorable. I made one similar years ago but had mustard instead of ketchup - lol! Doxies are so easy to dress up and I have found that most of them don't even mind wearing them.

Have you ever read the book Halloweiner?? Rusty reminded me of this funny funny children's book. I'm a retired teacher/Reading Specialist so I think in terms of children's books. Love it!!
