I survived Halloween!!!

Halloween was a heck of a lot of fun but I seriously didn't think I was going to make it. In the week leading up to this mother of all kid holidays, I helped sew for a musical production of "Little Women" (sorry, I don't have any pictures), I made a costume for an 11 year old girl (her mother actually paid me!)

and I made dinosaur costumes for my own kids.

Graeme the Triceratops
Kai the Carnatorous
Chloe the Parasaurolophus
This in addition to being in charge of Graeme's classroom Halloween party.

Halloween itself was worth all the effort, though. The party was a great success, the kids had a wonderful time trick or treating and I had lots of trick or treaters come to the door. I was very impressed with how polite they were (almost all of the kids said "thank you" with little or no prompting from their parents). No one destroyed our decorations or pumpkins and I didn't have any snotty teenagers dressed in sweats instead of a costume. All in all it was a fun day.
I'm awfully glad it's over, though.

I read Sues blog and saw that Kai had a bad day, hope he's feeling better.

I hadn't seen pictures of the little dress you made. It's really cute and of course the dinosaurs are without doubt adorable. Just think three of them.

You are a great Mom, thanks for sharing.

Love ya,
Mom

I am so impressed with all this sewing you are/have been doing! Who knew that sewing machine of yours would come in so handy! You have a great talent (at least developing it quite well!)
