Halloween 2009

Just a few photos from tonight.

We tried Henry's costume on before visiting Granna, but he didn't love it. So we let him take it off.

We misplaced and never found the ears that Anna Jane stitched for her doggy costume, so I had to make a set of emergency ears this afternoon. Other than that, the handiwork is all hers!

I cut out a leg of a cheap pair of sweatpants and stuffed them with cotton batting to become Wilson's spiky dino tail. All of the dinosaur accessories were attached to the hooded sweatshirt so it could easily be removed with one un-zip.

I bribed Henry with a piece of candy to put the lion costume on long enough for a photograph. With his cute little waddle, he looked more like an Ewok than the king of the jungle.

Uncle Adam snapped some pics and we hit the streets! A great night!

By the way...yesterday was a teacher workday. I tackled a couple of ambitious projects around the house instead of working. I can't wait to show the before and afters...keep your eyes open for a couple of new posts in the next few days!


  1. I am so proud of Anna Jane's sewing skills! I'm glad she likes to come to workshop with her mommy. Martha

  2. Katherine can you send these pictures to my facebook? Several people want to see the kids in Halloween garb!
