Halloween Costumes

I don’t know what it is but for some reason having TWO kids makes holidays even more fun.  There’s something about having two little girls that makes me want to dress them up in matching fairy costumes.  Sure it would be easier to buy some cheap little dress at Target, but where’s the fun in that?  I found the {PERFECT} costume pattern at Walmart, only problem was that they were all sold out.  So I called my mom to see if she could go by Joanns (a fabric store 25 minutes away from where I live) and see if they had it in stock.  So she went and bought it for me, on marathon weekend, and got stuck in traffic for over 30 minutes.  The pattern cost double what I thought it would be even with it being 50% off. (Thanks mom for buying it for me, the girls will be fairies and princesses for Halloween every year to make up for it.)  Today I went and bought the fabric and oh what a headache it is trying to add up thirds and eighths of yards in my head.   I just can’t compute things in my head like that on only a few hours of sleep.  So after all this headache I’m hoping these costumes turn out to be pretty stinking awesome or I will be sorely disappointed.  I’m sure Macey and Maddy won’t care either way.  The costumes are mostly to feed their mommas ego and to give me an excuse to  spend some time with Berny.  I hope I can get these done before Halloween – I’m sure I’ll probably be up all night on the 30th.

  1. Oh, those are going to be so cute! Can’t wait to see how they turn out! (BTW- my mom and sister and I all made the mistake last year of going to Joann’s last year during marathon day and I think we had to endure about an hour of the twins crying in the car while trying to get back home! Ahh! What a HUGE pain! …. don’t even remember what we got, but hopefully your mom’s trip was worth the trouble!)
