Henry has been set on his costume for weeks and weeks-- a golden knight. I used Simplicity pattern 5520 and a cape that Grandma J had made a while back. It was really fun to make and even more gratifying when he asked if he could sleep in it. There is something so endearing about the three-year old stage. Their imaginations are endless, their perception of the world is eye opening and their love is unconditional (that's not to say he isn't challenging at times), but I just want to bottle this stage up and keep it in my pocket.
Lucy has had a few ideas for costumes. She wanted to be Spider Girl up until a couple of days ago when her heart's desire settled on being a TV. We didn't quite have the supplies she wanted, but we tried our best. (What's on TV? A baseball game!)
Sadly, the TV was a bit too cumbersome to wear to school. Luckily, Grandma J had bought some princess dresses a few years ago and Lucy was happy to trade in for something a little more feminine. She wore the TV to our church Halloween party and the Cinderella dress to Boo at the Zoo and to her school dress-up day. And she wore the Belle dress (my favorite) to a friend's Halloween party and trick or treating.
Happy Haunting, everyone!
