Oh, how October got away from me. I had planned to do so many Halloweeny things and Halloweeny posts, but it turned out to be an incredibly busy month. Not to mention some illness sweeping through the house and catching us each in turn. I'm kinda bummed that I missed out on so much from one of my favorite months, but I hope you all had a fantastically spooky October.
I have had Ezra's costume planned for a little while, and half done for most of the month, which is why it got finished—mostly. I had intended to add a dorsal fin, but again, ran out of time. Here's my little shark-bait.
Ava's I struggled with more. I had kind of planned to make her a pink flamingo (guess I'm on a bird kick with her) but never had a chance to even start on it. So two days before Halloween I threw together a Little Red Riding Hood costume. I made her cape out of an old skirt lining (I made the hood way too big) and a feather boa. All I bought for the costume was the basket ($5), the kerchief ($1), and the feather boa ($2). The rest I already had. Not my proudest moment in costuming, but it just had to do. And it was so fun to take her out for her first trick-or-treating ever.
