Halloween 1976
Yvonne
Halloween 2008
Elise
My mom made this turtle costume for me in 1976. When I went home to visit we pulled it out and put it on Elise. It has held up pretty well considering it is 32 years old. I know I wasn't the only one to wear it either. I think all of my brothers were put in it at one time or another.

Not only did you all wear it, but three of my kids wore that costume! And Carrie asked just yesterday if I had that cute turtle costume...I had to inform her that it wasn't ours:)I am going to try to find pictures now. That really is such a cute costume. Thanks, Margene!

Wow! I love that turtle costume. It's really cute with a side by side. I'm amazed at your mom's talent. My homemade costumes never look that good.

That is just too adorable! Sheldon was a turtle last year for Halloween and the costume was modeled after one that my mom made for me that I think was modeled after the one your mom made for you! How fun. Oh, and I love the haircut, so cute!
