It’s no surprise that, with a DIY mother of my own, Halloween costumes from my childhood were often of the homemade variety…
…but when I caught the Today Show’s segment this morning on last minute Halloween ideas for the kiddos, it only confirmed that I’ll someday be the mother hauling around her little trick-or-treaters decked out in DIY costumes from the hardware store.
Poor little astronaut…
I wouldn’t venture to say that I’ve never laughed so hard as when I watched this, but it’s definitely in the running. Al Roker’s belly laughs were egging me on.
Happy Halloween, y’all!
LTHL Update: Since posting, fond family memories have arisen that must be shared…
Cara: Warning. You are on the blog today.
Brother Will: I look ready to do some plundering and sailing of the high seas. Too bad we grew up in a land locked state…that always was a favorite costume of mine.
Cara: Nah. Mom’s DIY version of Indiana Jones has the pirate beat.
Will: Of course. That one tops the list…and I’m pretty sure Mom made my whip out of a syringe and braided panty hose.
