I have to brag. This year, Henry's Halloween costume fit! If you've hung around for awhile, you may remember his first Halloween as a Pea Pod and his second year as a gnome with too-short pants. But this year, I actually bought the costume in early October AND was able to buy the correct size. And because it goes over a regular shirt and pants, he didn't seem to mind it. He even kept the hood up most of the time. Now the whole trick-or-treating thing is still a bit overwhelming, but he does love the candy, which he ate as he went along.
Now Olivia was almost a problem. I ordered an Olivia the pig costume the Wednesday before Halloween requesting overnight service. By Friday, it wasn't here. So Saturday, I ran to a Halloween costume store, found an Olivia costume that had been ransacked, leaving only the dress. Found striped tights that were way too big. Made felt pig ears, but found out that interfacing isn't enough to hold them upright- next time I should wire them. Oh well, she was pleased and except for exceptionally droopy bunny-like ears, she looked fine.
While I'm bragging on myself, Henry did look awesome at my niece's wedding. I caught this picture of him as he was, apparently, auditioning for a Gap ad.
