here’s the babe’s announcements, now that he’s already 2 months old! these were fun to do, super easy and cheap (minus postage!). the hardest part was getting a good picture! we’re sending these out to family and out-of-town friends, so if you’re local and wondering where your’s is, well…. here it is!
also, lily got her first shiner this week. she was throwing a fit as we were getting into the car. just as i was telling her to be careful or she’d get hurt – BAM! – she hit her eye against the edge of he door! not a great moment for “i told you so!”. she got over it pretty quickly, and now we’re left with an abused-looking child.
halloween costumes: we’re going with a peter pan theme. gracie is going to be tinkerbell, lily is princess tiger lily, and silas will be a pirate. gracie wanted him to be peter pan, but sean wanted him in something “more masculine”, so a pirate he’ll be. i went against everything in me and ordered lily’s costume again this year, its actually pretty cute on her, although made really cheaply. and i’m sure she won’t be wearing those braids for long!
gracie wanted to be tinkerbell, but i wasn’t so into the new disney costumes that are out there (we have one for dress up). nothing wrong with them, but they just don’t look like the original tinkerbell, more like a green fairy. so i’m (poorly) attempting to make her costume from scratch. my first attempt was really bad! she looks a bit more like a “lady of the night”! first i made it too big, then it was waaaayy too small. so i’ll try again for a longer happy medium. more to come!
