Alphabe-Thursday

Sometimes I think the more words there are for a letter, the harder it is to choose one ;-).  Anyhow I chose Trick or Treaters for the letter T.  When my son was little, we used to go trick or treating with the neighbors on the next street.  Every year, we would try to get a picture of all the kids.  I'm sure I have more but these are what I found.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I did looking at them.

                                                  My son as superman.  


               This next one I think he was a character from Super Mario but I'm not sure.



             This was when he was a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, if you remember them LOL



 This last one I don't have an individual picture of him and I'm not sure what he was.  He's the one with the things sticking out of his head lol. 


Now, check over at Jenny Matlock's to see what tremendous words people came up with for their Alphabe-Thursday.  http://jennymatlock.blogspot.com/2010/06/alphabe-thursday-t.html

Hi Viki!

How cute is he??? Such darling little outfits!! I always loved Treat or Treat, just to see the imaginations of the custom makers! I certainly was surprised at what some people could dream up!

Thanks for sharing with us!

Oh I love this Vikki...you know Halloween is my favorite time of year...the entire Fall season is...but this night...Party time...last year my 13 year old had a garage party...I think I had more fun than the kids:) No they had a blast too. Such cute kids here and their costumes.

These are so cute! I love having trick or treaters come to the door on Halloween. It's so much fun, especially the really little ones. Cute choice for T. Kathy

I absolutely adore Halloween and I especially LOVED trick or treating with my kids when they were young. It was such a magical night! Stop by my blog for a giveaway of 12 "Style Sisters" napkin rings. Joni

How cute! My now 30 year old son son loved the Teen Aged Ninja Turtle characters when he was young.

Happy "T"day!

My parents grew up in a little village in Derbyshie, England. Every year, they would have a 'wakes week' (sort of a village carnival). For the little kiddies there was a fancy dress parade. I still have certificates which 'I' won. (Of course, all I had to do was stand and show off mum's creatively created costumes!). Unfortunately, the needlework gene by-passed me completely:(

SOOOOO cute! I love your T choice! I love Halloween...my sister and I are both October babies so we've always been big on celebrating around the Halloween holiday. I love costumes and seeing all the kids in theirs! Fun, fun!

RNSANE said...

I laugh because my son, now 25, is cuter these days at Halloween, than he ever was as a child - at least at Halloween. His girlfriend of three years, a Cal Poly fellow track mate ( he graduated two years ago ) is a design engineer major ( graduating in two weeks ) and I've never seen anyone so creative. Their costumes are hysterical and delightful. One year, they went as a queen bee and a worker bee - last year, he was a crab fishing boat and she was a crab. She is so good with detail and I can't wait every year to see what will come next.



At 65, I've done it! My poetry book - Life's Journey by Carmen Henesy - is out on Amazon!

PERMANENT POSIES said...

Cute photos! Great idea for Alphabet Thursday.

Jamie said...

I always loved making Halloween costumes, and was so sad the first year no one wanted a new, homemade costume. This brought back great memories!

Lourie said...

I love trick or treaters!! And yes, I do remember the turtles. My nephew loved them. I think he still does, and he's all growed up! haha.

Hi, thanks for your comment on my trees. I had so many visitors this week because teacher put me at the front of the class!
Kids in the UK have not really taken the best ideas from Trick or Treat - causes a lot of problems here

Maggie B said...

Happy Days! Great T post.

I love Halloween costumes, I would spend hours sewing my kid's costumes! I made a Street Sharks costume with over 50 pieces but the most complicated was the Rainbow Brite costume for my daughter. They will always remember the effort that you made! Thanks for visiting my post.

GardenofDaisies said...

Love all the Halloween pics! Such a fun time of year!!! And your little guy looks adorable in his costumes! I do remember Ninja Turtles! :-)

Mary said...

My boys are older now and it would have been neat to go back and look at Halloween pics every year. I have some but not a whole bunch! Thanks for sharing!

easternsparkle said...

Trick or treat is fairly new over here - not many kids get the idea that you're supposed to dress up!!

Cheryl said...

What a great choice for T. Remember the Teenage Ninjas? I hated them! He looks like a Mario character in 2nd outfit. The last one is a stumper for sure.

Julie Schuler said...

I love pics of kids in costumes!

Betty (picture circa 1951) said...

Those days were so much fun! I have pictures like that of my kids. I'm sorry that kids don't trick or treat as much anymore. Playing dress up was always fun for everyone. I enjoyed your pictures.

Melinda Cornish said...

what fun pictures...I think the mario character is luigi...I think.

Mary said...

Adorable treat or treaters~ what fun :-)
