I got all of this stuff today:
It may not look like it, but it is going to be a Halloween costume. A first Halloween costume. For this cute little kid:
I wanted it to be an owl, but I couldn’t find a pattern for an owl that wasn’t so scary or ugly or costing $50+… so I was talking about modifying a pumpkin pattern when Garrett admitted that he thought something else would be cuter:
This, my friends, is Abby Cadabby. Hayden watches her on Sesame Street while I make her breakfast in the morning. She loves her. I love her. (The truth is that Hoot prefers Elmo. But Elmo is a boy and wouldn’t make as cute of a costume as a sweet little fairy-in training like Miss Abby here. And let’s face it, I am the mom and until she can talk I get to pick.)
So now I have a pile of stuff to make into a costume. I figured I should get a head start on it since it takes me forever and two days to get anything done, especially in the craft project department. I am hoping (while promising nothing) that this will not look like the same little heap of crap on October 28th or thereabouts. I am making a goal here to go against all that I usually do and not procrastinate. We’ll see how it goes. J
And now to take the heat off of me and my goal making, I bring you some pictures of Haydie-Hoots herself, a crafty little lady in the making, working on her first art project with her daddy. We bought her these little chubby markers and a notebook at Walmart the other night. We chose to blow off the fact that the package says “18 Months +” and the fact that our kid is only 8 months. We, like all parents , believe she is a genius. So, without further ado, Hayden Paisley The Genius gets crafty:
"You see me, Mama? i am coloring!"
"I don't NEED your help, Dad!"
More issues with unwanted help....
"See, I can do it MYSELF!!"
I just think that this is the funniest picture i have ever seen. (And so does she. LOL)
AND VOILA!! A MASTERPIECE!!
man, i love this kid. :)
