halloween 2009

I'm not biased or anything, but I'm pretty sure I've got the cutest Halloween crew around. So cute, in fact, that two of them won awards in two different categories at the ward Trunk-or-Treat. That's right, award winning cute.


These lovely costumes were purchased, not hand sewn, and after my sewing marathon producing penguins I am again reminded of the lunacy of spending so much time and pretty much the same amount of money to get an outfit that will only be worn for a couple of hours during one night of the year. Yet, I can all but guarantee I will forget this logic again at some point in the future and embark on another Halloween sewing mission. Because sewing Halloween costumes is like giving birth. In the middle of it all, you are like "What in the world was I thinking. I'm never doing this again." And before you know it, you have a creation all your own (costume or baby) and you forget all about the hours of torture it took to bring them to life. And some time passes, and suddenly you think "Hey, let's do this again." Remind me of this post in a year when I start to flip through patterns books, although I might ignore the advice. In summary, my kids are cute, and store bought costumes are great.

Hey Kimmy! Do I remember you saying one of your kids was into the 39 clues books? I'm just wondering what you think of them and if you kids like them. I was thinking of getting them for Mark (8) for Christmas.

Email me whatcha think emily@gleukos.com. Thanks!

Kimmy, how am I supposed to waste my time at the computer when I am still looking at your Halloween posts, I mean isn't the whole reason you blog to keep me entertained during my last few weeks of pregnancy?
