Firstly JJ's first Halloween as a koala. I designed and sewed this costume in 1 day. Turned out perfectly. He was warm and cuddly. I was a tree..... get it?
This year was a lot harder to make a decision. I went back and forth on many things. I figured this would be the last year that I would have all the say in JJ's costume. And it was only after we were playing amongst the trees in the yard that I realised he looked very much like a woodland fairy flittering around and playing peek a boo. So this year JJ (yes, my son) is a woodland fairy. I designed and sewed the costume and I think that JJ pulled it off remarkably.
And of course the little woodland fairy needs to enjoy his spoils....
And.... because I was doing a little reminiscing I thought I might as well share JJ's first pumkin carving. There is such a narrative. He did not like the feel of all that icky stuff and had a complete meltdown. However after a nap and was more willing.
