This is me the last year I went trick or treating. I was in 7th grade and 11 almost 12 (my birthday is 4 days after Halloween) in this picture. After that I just went out with my friends and hung out on Halloween.
I went as a scarecrow. My costume consisted of me painting my mom's old jeans, wearing my mom's shirt (my mom had embellished it many many years before) and my dad's hat. I think I had some straw somewhere, too. Look at that eyeshadow & feathered hair...wow! My mom made that Halloween treat bag. I still have it and we use it every year.
Do you remember the last time you went trick or treating as a child?
(My husband said he continued to go trick or treating well into his teens.)
