Let me introduce you to what looks like our old neighbor dog, Brutus, from our mini-farm days a couple of months ago.
He was a lovable guy, a bit slobbery for my taste and apparently Jelly Beans as well. Here is the following conversation I had with her as I tucked her into bed...
JellyBeans: Mom, I liked the white house. (mini-farm)
Me: That house sure had a big yard in it, didn't it?
Jelly Beans: Yep! It was fun...except when Brutus would crawl under the fence.
He thinks I am lunch, but I am not!
World from a three year old.

This has to be one of the best Halloweens that my family has ever had.
No school stress or homework to bog us down, living with my favorite sister (I can say that, I only have one.. ;), and finally breaking out of my shell we decorated a our trunk and passed out candy after a most delightful and fun filled dinner party with the ward. By the way, I absolutely love, love, love my new ward! We were made for each other.
Always a challenge and delight to make the kids costumes. We are all about thrifty and unique usually one use costumes, because lets face it...my kids picking the same costume twice just isn't happening.
Besides making the costumes is half the fun! A Glittering Glenda's crown (and consequently the whole house for weeks), Davy's leather outfit from paper bags and some paint, and tutus for the little fairies, wings and wands compliments from the Dollar Store!
