Happy Halloween!!

Here are the girls last night! Gem would only keep the hood on for this picture . . . she was supposed to be Little Red Riding Hood, but she ended up looking like a German Barmaid! The girls costumes turned out really well (if I do say so myself!) And they had a blast. It was so fun having Halloween on a Friday b/c I didn't have to worry about getting up for school and I let them stay out longer than I think we normally would have!

What was I thinking??

Today the girls and I ran over to JoAnn's fabric to get some elastic for some EASY to sew skirts, this is the one I made yesterday.

So, we walk in the store and there is the most gorgeous Fairy costume on a small mannequin. The girls went NUTS! "MOMMY, I LOVE THAT ONE!! I WANT THAT ONE!"

Well, I say, hum, I just made a skirt, so I CAN DO THAT FOR YOU!! What was I thinking?? So, here is what I have so far: 8 yards of slippery satiny fabric, Gold trim, A VERY COMPLICATED pattern (no the word EASY is not on the front) and the elastic that I went to get.

Who wants to make a bet that I am at Target on the 31st, begging the girls to be the fluffy bunny b/c that is the only costume left???????
