Step Back



I always loved Halloween and a big part of that is costumes.  Having kids only makes it better because then you get to figure out how to create their costumes too.  I've transformed them into Jack Skellington, Fluffy, the 3-headed dog, an owl, several Harry Potters and more.  Then they started doing plays and that meant more costumes.  I created a fox, a bunny, some pirates...it was so much fun to figure out what we needed to transform regular kids into fantastical, imaginative creatures! But this last play everything changed.

The girls have their own ideas of how to create their costumes.  They are able to figure out what raw materials they need and using sewing machines, glue guns, sharpies and more, create what they had in their mind's eye.  It may not look like what I expected, but that really doesn't matter.  It's their costume and their time to shine.  It's time for me to step back and let them grow up. 

Hopefully they don't grow up too much, I need someone to go trick-or-treating with when I'm 60 ;)
