Halloween Costumes!

Monday, October 31st, 2011

Sophie’s was pretty easy this year, we just put a cute hat on her. So she was a pretty woodland ensemble of owls and hedgehogs.

Desi wanted to be Thomas this year. So I made his costume out of a diaper box, (Size 4 Target, Club Size), paper plates and brads (so Thomas has moving wheels), ribbon, felt, blue spraypaint, cardboard, glue, red paint, and gold paper for the number ones. He loved it. It turned out really nice. I liked that total out-of-pocket cost was $4.99 for the brads since I already had everything else!

Running to candy! :)

Walker wanted to go as Dia de los Muertos this year, so we put together some fun outfits for Highball Halloween last night. Despite the freezing temperatures, we had a great time!

Finished up a treat bag for Sophie tonight! It is a pink felt bag with a little owl and candy corn. She loves bags anyway, so she’ll love this! I love the lining!

Delightful Book!

Just preordered this sweet book written by Emily of The Black Apple. Will be available in January. A nice after-Christmas arrival! The story sounds delightful and I love all of her illustrations. Order yourself a copy here. (Picture via The Black Apple).
