Simple is sometimes better. ..

Yesterday was the Relay for Life in Southgate, MI. My sister works for the American Cancer Society and I always go out to her events that she plans. This year there was a trick-or-treat lap for kids to walk around and get candy. I found out about it two days ago, so I didn't have much time to plan.

Judah hasn't had a Halloween yet, because he's only 3 1/2 months old,  so he didn't have a costume. His great-aunt had bought us a little baseball outfit for him, so we went with that. I was going to make him a plush baseball to carry, but Nathan suggested a little ping pong ball. It was perfectly to his scale. So I just washed off the ball, drew lines of a baseball on it with a paint marker, and there he had a little baseball!

here it is:

and here Judah is holding the baseball, with me and the whole outfit outside our house:

(his eyes are closed,  Cheesy but this gives a good size comparison)

He got so many compliments yesterday, I'm so glad he could bring joy.

I'm writing this to say that even some of the simplest crafts make something so much better.  Grin Grin

Such a clever idea!
And little Judah looks so cute in his outfit with matching ball.
That last picture of the two of you is just perfect!

So sweet I think I am in sugar shock! What an adorable little boy! Great outfit and the ball is perfect. Great job.

I was off to save the world....until I was distracted by something shiny.
