Another beautiful fall day has come. It will not decide whether it wants to be cold or warm around here.
So it is making it hard for me to finish the costume for Halloween. I want them to be warm enough for the little ones but not so warm that everyone is sweating. At the some time I don't want them too cool either.
My DS wants to be Oggie Boogie from the Nightmare before Christmas . I plan on going as a Virginia Colonialist and the girls are goings as Disney characters. Missy Ginny will be Ariel and Miss Keira will be Tinker Bell, wings and all. What a group we will be. My DD said that she is goings as the tried SAHM. hehehe I don't know why she is tried, I'm doing all the sewing. LOL I'm still trying to get DH and SIL to dress up, but so far no go. DH said he plans on dressing warm, not crazy. Party Pooper!!
Well I'm off to Hobby Lobby for burlap and lace. Keep your fingers crossed, I'm doing the Oggie Boogie costume without a pattern. Wish me luck.

So until we meet again ~~smiles~~
