Here's a photo of me and (most of) my Dad. I'm wearing my awesome Smurfette costume, the one I found in the attic this summer! (Well, the smock part anyway - the mask must be long gone.) This was in 1982 and I was only 2 years old. That's my high chair behind me, in a stylish yellow, orange and green floral print - stylish for the 70s I mean. Like every other child of the 80s, I loved the Smurfs! Besides this costume, I had Smurf pajamas (with booties and a hat), Smurf figurines and stuffed toys, a Gargamel punching bag - and there was even Smurf wallpaper in my bedroom!

Here's 3 year old me dressed as a witch - a witch with an impressive unibrow. (I think it's hilarious that there's a Wikipedia entry for that!) The hat was made out of construction paper, and that's probably just one of mom or dad's black shirts. Notice that I'm wearing a thick coat and wool hat underneath the costume? It gets pretty cold here that time of year. It's actually quite normal for there to be snow on the ground! It looks like I got a lot more candy that year. I guess my parents took me to quite a few more houses!

Next week I'll post a few pictures of costumes that I wore in my early 20s. They're quite a bit different than these!
