week 39 in my “this is where i am from” year long project:
I loved halloween. I loved making costumes and my most favorite of all was my big fig newton costume – I was 10 or 11. I spent weeks working on it. The fabric was shimmery and I learned the song and the dance (note the jazz hands). So much fun to make but not so much fun to wear – it was pretty awkward and it rained on halloween that year so I was a soggy, cold, uncomfortable newton.
