Shake A Tail Feather...

Coming up with a costume for this year's Halloween... was something Charlotte went back and forth for, for days.... she was changing her mind, like she changes her unders... so I pretty much waited until the very last moment to throw her costume together, in fear that I'd sew something up that took SUPER long, and then she would change her mind. Okay... maybe that wasn't the reason I waited until the last moment- that might have something to do with my procrastination and crazy schedule as of late. She actually chose what she wanted to dress up as, because of revisiting blog posts from Hawaii... this one, in particular. She loves when I read old blog posts to her... I think she thinks it's her very own book, where she's the star... and I'm pretty certain that's what it's turned into.

But, as I finished up her costume yesterday... which took way longer than I had hoped... and had her try it on... it was that first initial smile, the smile that showed me the hours put in, were worth it... and then she danced around... and so I knew it was a keeper.

  1. So creative and cute! And just so you know, your blog CAN be an actual book. We used Blurb to make our blog into adoption books for both our girls. They love looking through them. Good archival quality, too.
