Happy Halloween

Trick or treat!

Twenty years ago, I made my daughter this costume for Halloween:
Daughter M (right) with her cousin Cody.

This year, she made her own:

She made that!  No pattern, just some duct tape modeling, fake fur, upholstery foam, an electric bread knife, Sculpey clay, and who knows what else.  Oh, hot glue.  I'm sure there was a glue gun involved.  Amazing!

She also made this German Shepherd for her boyfriend.  They (as well as Norm) went to Freakfest in Madison last Saturday.

The police dog posing with a real cop.  Cute.

I found some other old photos in my trip down memory lane.  It's spooky how time flies.
Our fall traditions always included a trip to the apple orchard and pumpkin patch/petting zoo.
The goats and kitties loved her way back then.  Now she takes care of all sorts of animals at the vet clinic.

Happy Halloween!

What a talent! (Obviously learned from you... or your DNA!) Is she interested in costuming as a job? From the picture, I think she has a SyFy future.
