getting there

dorothy
last minute again over here, but thats ok because it has kicked me in the pants and gotten me out of my funk. i botched attempt number one on dorothys dress. why i feel like i can just tackle these things on my own without a pattern i dont know. going for a simpler apron style jumper this time around. thanks for the idea david, you are right i need to talk to you more often about sewing. next time my dear, next time. arlo just needs a pair of ears to go with a brown onesie to complete her role as toto. remember how i had mentioned losing the battle with eliot over costumes this year? i am counting my blessings right now that i dont have a third thing lined up to make. besides he was so stinking excited about it how could i not smile and enjoy it.
spiderman wears a wife beater
spiderman hung out at our house all day saturday and sunday. also scared the bajesus out of arlo one time. oops. have a great day tomorrow. in classic kc style the temperature today is 76 and tomorrow it is supposed to be 40 and rainy. awesome, bring on the candy induced tummy aches and runny noses.

Oh, you must show the finished dorothy and toto once the girls are dressed up. My daughter has those exact same shoes -- watch out, the glitter gets everywhere!

I saw those ruby slippers at Target and *almost* picked up a pair on the off chance that Elise would want to be Dorothy one day. They're so fun!

Today should have been Halloween -- nice and blustery and warm. Tomorrow will be coat-under-costume weather...

so great, and I can't wait to see the whole trio! last minute was our routine too - I'm starting to think there's no possible way around it... Happy Halloween, and I hope the insanity of the evening helps to brighten everything up for you!
