Happy Halloween 2011

So, anyone who knows us, knows that Halloween is our very favorite holiday. This year, Jamie was actually into most of the activities. She helped Rob and I carve pumpkins, we headed over to the in-laws for that. Although, Jamie was totally not impressed when Rob started pulling the nasty pulpy pumpkin seeds out of the pumpkin. Smart girl, I hate that part, too. We carved some super awesome pumpkins, I made my warty pumpkin totally goofy, I also roasted the seeds for the first time.

A shy little grin with the pumkins.

I wanted to make Jamie’s costume myself, but as I have very little sewing skills (I have been making felt food by handstitching, I was not about to hand stitch an entire outfit) her outfit is semi-homemade. I bought a 24 month outfit, complete with ears in a grey tiger stripe, which fit for me since she is the Cheshire cat from Alice in Wonderland, and I was running out of time. My mother in law helped, err did all the work, by sewing on a tail and larger ears. Jamie loved the costume so much, she wore it out to dinner tonight. I’ll admit it’s a bit short, that child is so tall, that she won’t be able to wear it for much longer, but she is so darn cute! I have decided that by next Halloween, I will teach myself to sew and make Jamie’s costume since I’m just not a fan of store bought costumes. I totally want to be original in my ideas, so why buy some junky costume when you can make your own super awesome one, am I right? ( If I’m not, just nod and smile, it’s what Rob does.)

Just a little kitten grin.

Here is the whole group, well almost the whole group, we’re missing a card and the caterpillar for this shot, but it’s all I’ve got!
