Halloween 2015

So, I just realized that I never posted about our family costume last Halloween.
I do realize we are 2 months out and I am already planning for this year but that's life.

W was Pebbles from the Flintstones

I made a pinafore dress and stuck black felt on it and some blue bloomers.
The car behind her was made over a cozy truck we got for free and used as a base.
It's amazing what some cardboard, paint and wood could do.

We took the car trick or treating, although she can walk it's not very far.

This is the family.
P's costume was orange felt sewed in a tube made longer with black felt triangles a and a blue felt tie.
My dress is also made from felt.
The necklace is styrofoam balls cut into geometric shapes to look like rocks.
I used felt because it's sturdy and doesn't need hemming.

What were you for Halloween? What are you going to be this year?

I can't believe it! 
Two years ago today I was feeling like such a cow

and now I look at the little girl you are becoming.

You are independent and strong willed.
Don't ever let anyone tell you that's a bad thing.

Currently when I ask you how old you are,
 you say three and think it's so funny. Then you correct it to two. 
You have quite the personality already.

Tickles, chunkies or gotchus are your favorite and you always demand more.
You are polite and usually say please and thank you.

I love you so much, my Willow Leigh.
