|At our ward Halloween carnival|
We have always had fairly easy costumes in the past, but this year Gavin wanted to be a Wild Thing from Where the Wild Things Are. I stressed and stressed about how I was going to come up with a costume. With a LOT of help from my dear friend Lynda, I think we pulled it off. She pretty much sewed the mask/hat all by herself with out a pattern, just a picture. Gavin, however, was being very difficult. He insisted that the monster had a yellow striped shirt and not orange. We orginally sewed orange stripes. I told him he had to fix it if he wanted it different. So, he cut out the yellow stripes and taped it over the orange stripes.
Eli started out as a ghost, but ended up a bear (Gavin's costume from 2 years ago). Boyd was a Bishop chess piece (haha). I was a bat. Joshua was a dragon for our indoor events and Pooh for our outdoor events.
Our Halloween activies included carving pumpkins
