Er, back up just a minute. The handyman got a little preoccupied when we were trying to get out the door. He takes his job seriously. That's the hat we picked up at my local thrift a few weeks ago. I peeled away the old sticker and printed off my own, stickerfying it with the handy dandy Xyron machine. Also, the hat was wa-hay too big for his sweet little head, so I cut some foam strips and glue-gunned them inside for a more snuggeleyer fit.
Finally we set off on our mission.
Daisy had to stop and check out our Jack-o-lanterns, carved that very afternoon. She thought they were lush.
Then away she went. She's been walking for about a month, but I still can't stop watching her itty bitty feet go. She has a little penguin-ish sway.
But she was way ahead of Jack, so she stopped and called out to him..."Ja!" Then waited.
He caught up and off they went.
Here's a closer look at the pumpkins in their full glory. I'm proud to say that we grew the two outer ones. I planted 8 seeds and got two pumpkins. But that leaves some room for improvement on my gardening skills for next year's planting season.
As for the costume 4-1-1, Daisy's dungarees were a hand-me-down from some friends, and the hat was inherited from her big bro. Jack's vest and tool belt were hand stitched by moi, although I took no photos of the process and still scratch my head as to how I did the vest, since it was one of those way-too-late-at-night rush projects. But the best part is that Jack loves to wear it again and again around the house. I totally love Halloween costumes that lend themselves to role plan and imagination. He still gets a kick out of wearing his superman cape around, especially when jumping on his trampoline. I recently reorganized his closet and kept a section on the end specifically for role play and dress up. It'll be fun to see how that evolves.
Hope ya'll had a safe and fun Halloween too!
