I made this little ghost with a scrap from a vintage sheet, some ribbon + felt for a headband, and some yarn as a little bow.

You can find the most adorable ghost tutorial at merry may handmade!

Isn’t this the scariest little ghostie you ever did see?!

saturday, the 31st

boy&bike [1]boy&bike [2]

Did you know this is the first Halloween on a Saturday since 1998? We took advantage. The boys spent a good chunk of the day outside. The weather was amazing and they toddled around barefoot. Andrew really likes bikes, now, so he had a wonderful time. After dinner the boys got into their costumes (for the second time!) and we headed out down the block–Nate walking and Andrew in the wagon, steered by me!

the awaiting paparazzi! Andrew was weary of these shenanigans.

I didn’t take any photos of our trek, but Nathan received a few compliments on his costume. He was very brave at scary houses and was [~75%] polite about saying “Thank you” when he received a treat. They spent the next few hours giving out & eating candy, having cake & ice cream (Halloween is Daddy’s birthday!), and bouncing around Grandma’s house. Andrew was asleep before we even left the neighborhood and Nathan dozed off soon after. We got home and they didn’t even wake up! Daddy is now out and my sugar crash is approaching. Sleep sounds delicious. And we get an extra hour, tonight! I hope my kids’ biological clocks got the message.

he’s a winner!

pumpkin prize

Today, Nathan won this pumpkin in a class raffle. He was so happy to bring him home! He even let me take his photo with it!

I hope everyone has a wonderful [and safe!] Halloween!

little lion: halloween dress-up

Ever since my friend, Vanessa, first linked to i<3faces, I have been enamored with the blog. There is so much inspiration there every week! I love the entries to the theme contests and was just patiently waiting for one that I could enter. It has arrived! Halloween dress-up! I showed this photo a few weeks ago, but since Halloween is literally DAYS away (!!!), here is my dear Andy in his lion costume:

Baby Lion

How do you make a cuddly baby cuddlier?
Put him in a cute as heck costume. I found this at Value Village, last night, for less than $3.

He didn’t like it at first. He actually whined until I put him on the table. then, he whined more. I realized what he was whining for, though! my lens cap! He likes to try to put it on. I sometimes put it on and he likes snapping it off. I bet one day I’ll regret it. like, the day he scratches my lens or something equally as horrifying.

after that grew old, he played on the fish for a bit.

After a bit, he realized there was something on his head! He started to revolt and so I snapped a few of angry-face-lion and helped him out of it. Once it was off, he started cuddling the costume. I don’t blame him–I wanted to squeeze him the entire time he wore it!
