So, I've been sick. Spent last Mon/Tues attempting to stay in bed. It's been lingering all week, thought I was doing better, but on second thought, maybe not. Trying to decide now if I should go to the Dr., yuck! Maybe if I continue to ignore it, it will eventually go away. :)

Beginning to feel like I have Halloween breathing down my neck. This is my pile of costumes I need to sew...3 of them. Thought I had all the time in the world having bought it all in September, but alas, here we are 1st week in October, sick and not wanting to sew. They shouldn't be too hard though and I still have 3 whole weeks right!

Oh ya, here's the details...Nathan wanted to be something scary, so a Dementor is his choice. He wanted to be something like Scream or some other ax murderer that every other boy in school wears. I wouldn't allow it. For one, EVERY one wears those masks, and why should he choose a character he doesn't even know!
Kristen was easy, she wanted to be a Devil. That girl decides what she wants and does not waver. She's easy to shop with.
Samantha had no idea what to be. Took her to the fabric store to look at patterns. The only thing she liked was the medieval princess costume with the tall hat and veil. She told her grandma she didn't know if she was going to be a bride or a princess. When I told her she was a medieval princess she said excitedly, "Ok, so I'm an evil princess!" LOL I'm glad she wanted to be something princessy...I think we are on the tail end of that business in this house.

I have been sick too, it sucks. I just can't seem to get it together. I need to hire a team of helpers, maybe that will make me feel better.

LOL on the costumes, they look like they will be cute.

Taking a sewing class is on my list of things to do when the kids are older. My list seems to be getting longer and longer!

You are so ambitious with the costume sewing...but that is so neat that your kids will have those good memories. I always remember my mom sewing our costumes. Too bad that skill did not get passed along.

You are such the super mom to SEW their costumes! Way to go!
