Happy Halloween from Family Historians, Photo Collectors, Memory Keepers and the Team at Save Family Photos
My mom’s birthday is October 31st. Even though it was supposed to be her day, she fully embraced Halloween every year with my brother and me, easily making it my favorite holiday.
She dressed us up in extravagant costumes and transformed us into great trick-or-treaters. .
She loved hand-making our costumes. And I loved dreaming up ideas with her and then going to the fabric store, where she would create the perfect interpretation.
One of her most impressive accomplishments was a Dracula cape for my brother. I remember watching her construct the cape on her sewing machine at the dinning room table. It was a beautiful long black silky cape with red lining.
We ended up repurposing the cape for several costumes through out the years.
