WordGirl (and friends)

I’m sure I’ll be back to add a ton more photos eventually (and maybe some costume-making details), but I wanted to show our family’s WordGirl costumes, made for Jillian’s final costume party, Superheroes and Villains. We wore ours again for Halloween, too. Would you let a giant sandwich head go to waste?

Clockwise from Nora in the front, we have:

Nora – WordGirl
Sarah – Dr. Two-Brains
Blake – The Butcher
Lisa – Chuck the Evil Sandwich-Making Guy
Hazel – Captain Huggy Face
Jeff – The Amazing Rope Guy

Dave & Angie

I hope it’s OK with Angie if I share her photos from this weekend here.  I couldn’t resist–they’re probably the best pictures that have ever been taken of my kids.  Keep clicking for tea parties, Nora’s introduction to the iPad, swinging, pumpkin carving, and more Midway and Spring City adventures.  Please come visit again soon, you two!

Mummy loves us both equally

I had to get some comparison pictures of Hazel in Nora’s old mummy outfit. Two totally different kids, and I just like both of them so much.

The Scariest Mummy

This Halloween was mostly about scaring for Nora. And even though I was disappointed at first that she wouldn’t wear her mummy hat, I think tying a few “bandage” strips around her head with a bow added just the right amount of cuteness to her homemade mummy costume.

This costume was easy to make, but not at ALL easy to get on and off. Turns out, even if you start out with a stretchy base, sewing on a bunch of woven fabric strips makes it not stretchy. At least it looks cool, right?

Here are a few more photos from Nora’s class at CCNS performing their Halloween songs.
