I am so glad to be done with all the kids costumes. I waited until last weekend to start, and I’m still in shock that I finished them all in time. It doesn’t help that once I get an idea of something to add, I can’t not add it. ya know? Like Allysa’s kitten costume had to have a collar because it made it look sweeter (and less like a rat). Corra’s vampire cape had to have glitter (come on, its glitter!). Bryce’s Indiana Jones costume had to have a “whip” and a satchel (Indiana Jones has to have a whip, even if its really a bunch of rope tied together and it doesn’t even unravel). My costume had to have eyes too, not just teeth, claws, nose and ears. Kailey *neeeeded* to have mittens so her little Red Ridding Hood hands didn’t freeze.
Of course I thought of this the night of October 29, you know like a day from Halloween.
good thing she has little hands.

Now, I should probably start the laundry that I’ve been ignoring for the past 3 days or vacumme the stray pumpkin seeds that escaped the vacuum Wednesday night after the pumpkin carving.
eh, I don’t wanna.
Happy Halloween all, spooky pictures of the kids in there costumes tonight after trick or treating!
Shhhhhhhhh, don’t wake up the laundry! It’s sleeping peacefully while I ply 😉
I can’t wait to see costume pictures!
The costumes sound adorable! And no, you couldn’t not add that stuff. It would be wrong.
Too bad the laundry couldn’t help out by doing itself.
