Ok, so my title might be a bit of an exaggeration,
but here's my not-so-spooky version of
A Princess and a Ghost.
My story for Sian's Storytelling Sunday this month isn't much of a story. It's just a photo of my eight-year old Carrie dressed in a Belle costume I'd made for her that year, standing in front of a ghost we created as a decoration for a small Halloween party we held. I made all of Carrie's costumes when she was younger, and she will tell that this Belle dress was her all-time favorite.
The ghost was made of a bed sheet draped over a Styrofoam ball, strung up with fishing line and suspended in the corner of our fence. It made a fun backdrop for photos that night - an unknowing successful attempt at an early photo booth.
Her friends from school came dressed in costume too, and each brought a bag of candy to be used in a candy exchange. The girls played games, ate snacks, and giggled a lot.
I'll admit to feeling very nostalgic when I see photos of my sweet little girl in Halloween costumes I made for her, and I dream of the day that I'll be called upon to fashion a small costume for a grandchild. Someday...
