|Trying to get the last couple acres of bean cut before the rain.|
Since Daddy's work slowed a bit and rain moved in he got to participate in taking the girls Trick-or-Treating. Halloween is not my favorite holiday and I have some mixed feelings about it, but we do let the girls dress up in non-scary customs and go visit a few friends and family. I love to make my girls costumes and this year I let the older two girls pick what they wanted to be. Ella loves all things princess. I was not surprised when she wanted to dress-up like Cinderella. Emma decided to be a purple lady bug. When she first told me of her plans I tried to explain that lady bugs are red so she would be a red lady bug. Then I thought, "She is three years old. If she would like to be a purple lady bug then she can be!" So a purple lady bug she was! Our littlest girl Eva wore a butterfly costume that had been passed down from big sister. I was able to get fabric and felt to make the big girls costumes on sale so it was very cost effective, and the girls loved the fact that I made them. I know that someday they will probably decide that they prefer store bought things instead of what I make, so I am enjoying making things for them while I can.
