{phfr} - 4 Days Late

...because that's how I roll nowadays.


I've been working on Halloween costumes for the kids this past week (and of course this week, because everything takes me waaaaaaay longer to do anymore).  On a whim, and because I'm a glutton for punishment, I decided to make a little strawberry bag for Sunflowers costume (Strawberry Shortcake).  I wanted it to be kind of sturdy so she could use it after Halloween as well.  I think it turned out pretty. 
The red material is just scraps I had laying around.  The green is actually from a discarded shirt of my dear husband.  I couldn't bring myself to throw it away at the time and now I'm glad I kept it.

I had to throw in a picture of my little Ladybug who looks so pretty in her Little Flowers shirt.


Yesterday was my dear husband's birthday.  He got his present a little early because I couldn't wait to give it to him (and because I couldn't really hide it from him) but I think he was pretty happy with it.
Sorry for the bad picture.  I still haven't figured out my camera, and though I took many pictures this is the only one that kind of came out.

 As happy as my husband was with his gift, I think the munchkins were even happier with the box.  They immediately took it outside.  It was just tall enough for them to slip inside and of course that's what they did.  What child could resist?  Not these ones.
Who's in here?

It's Sunflower!

A little Fritter-in-the-box.

Hey, that box has grown feet!  Oh wait.  I think it's Ladybug.
My dining room table has taken the brunt of all the prepping for Halloween and birthdays (yikes!) to come.  We've taken to eating in the kitchen, which is really no fun at all.  Who wants to look at a pile of dirty dishes when we're supposed to be enjoying our meal?!
You can see Sunflower's mostly finished costume on the table.  Somewhere on here is the inspiration for our little Froggy's costume.  Anyone want to take a guess what he's going to be?

Go visit Like Mother, Like Daughter for more contentment!
