Dress Up Day!

Today was the Halloween Parade at
Sydney and Ty's school. Sydney hasn't
been allowed to dress up at school for
Halloween since pre-school. She was
really excited. My cute clown & skeleton.

My mom had made this clown costume over
25 years ago. It is the cutest thing ever! It
has star patches, polka dots, and stripes.
You would have thought she bought all those
fabrics today. My mom was a visionary! :0)

I needed Jen Rose this morning (our friend that
is a professional make-up artist)! My skills
are what you call 'lacking'. Especially when
you don't plan well when you have 10 minutes
to put make-up on both kids. :0(

I was so sad when Ty decided he wanted
to be a Jedi this year. I'm so glad he
changed his mind. I love making their
costumes and we had fun cutting
all of the bones out of felt.
Ty was a huge help!

Pretty cool gloves, Ty!
You two are adorable...
oops, I mean scary,Ty!

Great job on the skeleton!! You know, I had a clown costume made from that very same pattern that my mom made for me - um more than 25 years ago ;) The kids look so cute and I am glad they are getting to have so much fun at school!
