For the title page I used some more of the black lace paper. This time I layered it on orange. So much fun! And I don’t even mind that the letter stickers aren’t perfectly straight. Which is a big step for this slightly OCD girl! 🙂
The first spread shows my oldest’s first two Halloweens 2005 and 2006 (before his brother came along). But from here on out I did one year per spread.
I pick my favorite costume pic of each child and add a tab with their name and the year. Pooh and Tigger strutted their stuff in 2007. Well pooh didn’t strut cause he couldn’t walk. But he rode in that stroller like nobodies business! 🙂
The shipping tags make perfect spots for journaling. So that I can tell stories like how in 2008 my oldest decided he should be Parker Police “Ossifer” and his brother should be Keaton Kitty.
By 2009 both boys had gotten into TV and movies. So Mickey Mouse and Buzz Lightyear they became.
And in 2010, they both wanted to be able to fly. Super Why and Buzz were the costumes of choice.
2013 was the first year my oldest thought of a costume without just strolling through the aisles of the store. Which took a bit more work to find and put together. But a Chiefs uniform was sure fun. My youngest was all about the claws on his Wolverine costume. Strike a (menacing) pose!
2020 (it’s weird to even type that! hard to think that far in advance!)
2024 (enough pages to get me through my youngest’s senior year)
I just know this album will become a much loved holiday tradition!
My 5th grade year I dressed as a rock star (fishnets, black mini, gold shirt, and microphone) and the boys teased me that I looked like a hooker. Many tears over that one! I even remember yelling at one point, “I’m a ROCK STAR! Don’t you see the mic!” 🙂 What’s your most memorable Halloween costume? Leave me a comment, I’d love to hear all about it!
