52 Weeks of Sharing Our Memories - Halloween

This post is part of the 52 Weeks of Writing our Memories by Lorine McGinnis Schulze at Olive Tree Genealogy who has challenged us to write our memories for our future generations.

It's October; therefore, it's almost Halloween, so I thought I'd write a post about my costumes. Only, I don't remember most of them. I think one year I was a princess with a magic wand. Or maybe I was a fairy godmother. I think my costume was green and I wore a tall hat. 

I found these two photos when I was looking for something else (as usual).

This was taken in 1958 at the Roberts House (my maternal great grandparents' house---we call it The Big House). That's my brother Andy on the left. It looks like I'm wearing a clown outfit.

This photo was taken in 1959 at the Roberts House. That's me on the left. I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be. Maybe a witch. I don't know who the other two children are but the little girl is probably my playmate from across the street. The kid on the right is either my brother Andy or my playmate's brother. (I wish I'd found this photo when I wrote about my saddle oxford shoes. I'm wearing a pair in this photo.)
I loved dressing up and going trick-or-treating. I trick-or-treated until I thought I was too old, sometime after 6th grade, but I remember taking my younger siblings to a few houses on our street when I was older.
