Ugh. I am SO sick of bandwidth issues! Before it happens again I will fix it, it’s just expensive (I have to buy my template and add to my website options all about $300 which drives me insane) and confusing so I’m forcing Kim to help me!
I’m so bummed because right before it went out I had some posts planned. Now I don’t remember all that I wanted to blog about but I do have some back-logged photos to share… instead of going in order though I’m going to start with Halloween!
Kids costumes are up first!
The night before Halloween at 10pm I realized I couldn’t find Bailey’s black shirt for her cat costume. It was too late to run to Target so I searched and searched for a substitute… which is when I came up with my “cat obsessed with yarn” idea! HA!
All I did was take a piece of red felt, hand stitched “yarn” on the felt, cut out a heart and hand stitched it to a while shirt. Then I took yarn and made a yarn ball necklace (it fell apart during school).
She couldn’t wear her ears to school so although it’s hard to see I made little yarn puffs for her hair.
While I was totally grasping here she ended up loving it!
Parker was Super Girl until just the day before Halloween. So again I improvised. Last minute.
This was my favorite and happened around midnight the night before (after I finished Bailey’s) because I am neurotic! I just hand stitched the hat (it’s crappy b/c I just free handed it) and then at the last second I decided to cut off the ring part of the spider ring and tie it to a string I added. She LOVED it! There’s no way it would have survived a wash so I tossed it in the trash after Halloween which was PAINFUL because I loved it so much! The spider just swung around on her shirt and she thought it was so cool!
Most boring costume but funniest photo! He ended up being a spiderman pirate (he didn’t have his eye patch on for this but that’s how he trick or treated!) and I asked him to make a good Spiderman face. He looks like he’s pooping or something! HA! Totally makes me laugh!
Oh and at the first house we hit up for candy they asked what his joke was and I said, “Oh no, he doesn’t have one this year” but he cut me off and said, “YES I DO!”
“The mouse crossed the road and he never came back.”
HA! Our neighbor Kelly joked that he was the Halloween downer!
More Halloween stuff coming soon!
