Trick or Treat

I always grew up with home-made costumes -- so that what I want to provide for my kids. They don't cost less -- and they certainly don't take any less time to make/find ... but they are SO SO SO much cuter than you can buy them for at the store. This year I decided to make Jace a monkey. I sew quilts ... and costumes have curves and fabrics that I am unfamiliar with. Nevertheless, Joe and I picked out the material and got to work. Because my last few weeks have been quite ... miserable ... I didn't get the costume finished until Friday night ... RIGHT in time! We ran to Sears on Saturday afternoon to get his pictures taken.
We chose Pose #4 here -- although as you can see it was a tough pick. I really like the "mischievous monkey" and the "hanging monkey" at the bottom. Afterwards we went to Grandma and Granpa Stohel's house for dinner and "show off" time. We "trick or treated" at the neighbors house -- really we just said hello. We didn't need any candy :) BUT SOMEONE had to see the cute monkey costume I made :)
