If you need ideas for Halloween, then you came to the right place.

Our oldest daughter always looks forward to this time of year.  She loves decorating and never fails to come up with the best costume for the Halloween parties that they get invited too.

This was the year to be a chicken and her hubby was the KFC man.

One year they decided to be the stein carrying couple

She never fails to amaze us with her ideas.  This was my favorite, a piñata.

Her gum ball machine brought the tooth fairy to the rescue.

I need to give credit to all our children, they all are  pretty darn creative and love to come up with fun ideas for dressing up.  I love their fun loving spirit!

Growing up we never celebrated Dia de los Muertos.  I don’t remember my Mom ever saying anything about this day, which is becoming very popular in the United States, especially in my California. This celebration comes from Mexico, which is a holiday in that country.

Dia de los Muertos is a day to honor all of those that are no longer with us physically.

Hubby and I never understood all the skulls and skeletons in the Mexican gift shops when we were first married, we thought it was macabre. I am so glad I understand now.

I had time to sew several clutch purses with that theme, these are just a few.

I used Kwik Sew pattern #3700.
