You know the old Girl Scout song..."Make new friends but keep the old....one is silver and the other's gold"? Well that's how I feel about these crazy sweaters. Today's Haloween cutie is the one that started it all...my "golden" friend! And even though it could be dubbed an "ugly theme sweater" in today's terms, it is so much more!
Back then our kids were young, really young! Like kindergarten and first grade young. The sweaters went along way with that crowd. Those youngens didn't make fun or call them ugly, oh no, in fact anyone's Mom who wore a pumpkin sweater in October was considered extremely cool...the cool Mom! And that's probably what started the cllection for all of us.
