A followup to the facebook photos...
We really had way too much fun at Halloween.
Jack was a Lion. I made his costume while I was still on maternity leave. I used pipe cleaners for the base of the mane. I wove in silk flowers and lots of tassley yarn to make it all stick out. He had little anklets and wristlets of tassley yarn, a tail with a pompom of yarn, and little "paws" made from scrap leather and black felt. It was a blast.
I hardly got any photos of our Halloween Potluck Party on Saturday, mostly because I was too busy having fun and laughing with the other parents over our silly, adorable babies. Everyone went all out.
There was a bumblebee...
And a lobster...
Two of Jack's friends from daycare were there. This is Jessie, who was a fearsome dinosaur:
And Ellis, who was an excellent dragon:
Ironically, the snowman was the warmest of us all:
However, the winner of the evening was clear, and it was the chicken:
Now imagine what this scene looks like when the five month old girl starts flapping her feet around.
I think I'm still laughing.
