Local Halloween Activities

Before moving to Dallas in 2006, my family and I lived in Powell, OH which is north of Columbus.  Every Halloween, our neighborhood would potluck and have a parade for the kids before the trick-or-treating began.  It was the perfect time for us to gather before the cold weather hit.  Back then, I took great pride in repurposing clothing and craft materials I had around the house in order to make costumes for my kids.  Here are two of my favorite costumes that I made!
