I’m glad I started my kids’ Halloween costumes early this year or I would be freaking out about now. It’s been a hectic month, and we just got back from a weekend trip to the cottage where we shut it down for the winter. (I love fall, and Michigan is beautiful this time of year. Check out Mona and Quinn on the path to the lake. Looks like a painting to me:
So between life and work in general and a few days out of town,
squeezing in costume making time has been tricky, but I’m finding
moments somewhere. I made sure to finish the thirteen-lined-ground-squirrel costume
before we left, and I recently finished the crocodile, too. (I have a
few more days before the dance at school to get Aden’s porcupine outfit
finished, but the rainy weather is not cooperating in terms of getting
her quills spray-painted.)
In any case, want to see the crocodile?
tooth fairy isn’t responsible for lost fake teeth, is she?)
specific ideas about visual things,
so I was worried I wouldn’t put this all together in a way she would
like, but she’s very happy with it. The hard part is keeping her out of
it before the school dance and trick-or-treat, but after that she can wear it to choir for all I care.
(Now to tackle those porcupine quills….)
