Happy Halloween! My first "Blogger" post.

Welcome to my new blog on Blogger. I was using the blog on my MySpace account but it was a real pain to work with and I've heard really nice things about Blogger... So I made the switch and here I am!

Yesterday was Halloween! One of my family's favorite holidays.

My youngest son who is 6 years old was a fighter pilot. I found him a vintage child's jacket that had a ton of old war patches at a local thrift shop. Then on eBay I finally found a vintage military hat that matched the coat perfectly. He just lost his bottom 2 front teeth last week! His first tooth fairy visit too. Kids grow up so fast!

My older son who is 11 was Sasori a member of Akatsuki from the Naruto anime series. I made his costume from scratch without a pattern and boy was it tough! I'm not that great with sewing but I'm getting better and I was really surprised how nice it turned out!

My husband wasn't going to dress up at all.. but the day before Halloween his work decided his department had to participate in the annual costume contest. The people in his department ended up choosing Music Stars of the Past for their theme and tried to talk him into being Billy Idol.. I didn't want him to shave off his beard though so I talked him into being George Michael.. Poor guy! He looked really cute.. hehe.
I didn't have time to put a real costume together for myself this year. I spent way too much time on the Sasori costume. So didn't dress up this year.. well I did wear cat ears, lol.
