I continue to abandon my writing and I apologize. So many things have been going on and I haven't written about any of them!
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. In keeping with my terribly late theme, I thought I would share Halloween pictures with you. Quilt Market was that weekend and several people commented to me how I probably "really outdo myself on my children's costumes". No, not so much.
Olivia again took care of herself with a Snow White dress out of the dress-up box. Henry had to suffer through my Target costume that I was sure was big enough this year. (Remember last year's failure?) This year I chose the Garden Gnome costume because I figured it could pass as a dwarf costume with Olivia's Snow White. Henry wouldn't wear the beard and most of the time wouldn't wear the hat either. So, he just looked like Howdy Dowdy in an outfit that is too small. On the left, you can see that by the end of the evening the snaps on the pants had had enough and finally exploded leaving him in some sort of flowing palazzo pants.
Oh well, he is still young enough to have no idea how I failed him and he thought the best part of Halloween was just walking up and down the sidewalk. Next year I really will do better. A costume based on a sweatsuit that fits him, yes?
Right now I am on a sewing frenzy, so Olivia is going to benefit from some new clothes for the holidays. I'll share pictures once I get them figured out. And finished.
