Paging Drs. Caleb and Madeline
For as long as I can remember, Caleb wanted to be a doctor for Halloween this year. Simple enough, right? Now Madeline...well, I had hoped to create a special Little Red Riding costume for her. But that was not in the cards this year. Time was NOT my friend. I purchased the patterns and fabric at Joann and then got my little fingers busy. I did most of my sewing after everyone was in bed, as it was truly the only uninterrupted time I had. I had two weeks to pull it off, and I needed every last minute. I was printing their doctor badges just before we left the house on Friday for our church's Trunk or Treat....
...in the rain. Yep. We went trunk or treating in the rain. I was not about to stay home after working so hard on these cute little numbers. Caleb loves dinosaurs. So picking his fabric was easy. For Madeline, I just thought these monkeys were so stinkin' cute, and I liked the color.
I took these photos as we were leaving the house around 6:45pm. So not only was it dark, but it was extra dark from all that rain. I had to open my lens and crank up my ISO to even see the kids in the frame! Hence all that yucky digital noise. Arent' these just the cutest little doctors you have ever seen?
Thankfully, the kids got to trick or treat without the rain on Halloween. Our dear friends invited us to join them in their neighborhood for the night. We all had an absolute blast. It was the best time trick or treating ever. Lots of kids. Lots of decorated houses. Lots of candy. And a cool, crisp night to boot! And great company! What could be better?!
A few weeks back, we walked across the street to
Why, give them away for FREE, of course! And wouldn't you know it, that after two days, not a single pumpkin remained. Hope you all had a fun-filled, candy fest of a Halloween!
