Unfortunately, life goes on and the hours and hours you plan to have are quickly taken for other time deserving activities. So, Wednesday, I sat down at the sewing machine, turned on my favorite old movies and sewed until my brain was fried. Even I didn't know how to do something, I would ask for a little help and then pin, baste and sew, hoping that it would work out. This I can tell you that on the sleeves and the collar, there were hands helping me. There is no way that I just sewed something like that and it turned out alright.
So, after hemming, finishing button holes and placing on the buttons, I threw Shae in the costume and figured whatever will be, will be.
Ladies, here is Laura Ingles Wilder!
After the ward trunk or treat, we headed over to the Bowler home to carve our pumpkins for Halloween. So much fun to pull out pumpkin guts with a friend. Shae and Alpine had a blast for about 5 minutes and then the parentals had to finish the job.
We are, well you could say "pumpkin carving challenged." We do the typical triangle eyes, nose and the open mouth. I tried to do all circle shapes on my pumpkin. Yeah, it was real original let me tell you!
