Halloween, long ago


My son James will be 20 years old tomorrow. When he was little, he was really into Jurassic Park. So I dressed him up like a JP worker for Halloween. I don't know what became of that shirt, but I did the embroidered emblem on the front myself. It's a matter of drawing the picture, then lowering the feed dogs on your sewing machine and letting the machine stitch in many different directions until you 'fill in' the design. I'm not so sure I'd be so ambitious in this day and age, LOL!
Alas, no more trick-or-treaters in my house. The youngest is 16, the oldest 24. But they sure were cute back in the day, LOL!
We still, however, carve pumpkins! And we're dressing up the dog...pics to come later!

Love the picture!! You should try to find one of all the kids from days past..... You must have a group one?

This is Ada's first Halloween. She is dressed up all day but as she doesn't eat candy, she won't actually be going out tonight. I'll share her pic's when Grandpa gets home with the camera.
