Title: Cat in the Hat, Thing 1 & Thing 2!
Post by: Kymy on October 29, 2010 07:14:52 PM
Not only did I get the kids costumes done early this year but I LOVE how they turned out!!!!


 I had a VERY happy little boy who was pacing around for over 30 minutes waiting to go to school for his party! On Halloween we will paint his face white & draw whiskers & probably wear white mittens. The school says no face paints so we are just skipping that stuff for today.


 This is the first costume I have ever made all the pieces for and I am very proud!  It was even more exciting to have someone from Bís office offer to buy it for their grandson next year after seeing Zander wear it.


 Time for the good stuff PICTURES! This afternoon we took the kids to Bís work to show off their costumes & took a walk in down town afterward for picturesÖ they were literally STOPPING traffic. I am surprised there werenít accidents because people were slamming on their brakes to roll down their windows & tell the kids how awesome they were. Surprise, surprise they didnít want to stay still! So some of the pictures are a little blurry, but I still think they are cute!


There are more pictures and all the details on how I made them on my blog http://everythingyourmamamade.com/2010/10/29/cat-in-the-hat-thing-1-thing-2/

We let them out of their red box in town & they were off!
