My little pumpkin
She loved trick-or-treating. We were lucky that with the bad weather brought on by hurricane Sandy, there was a break in the rain just in time to go out for candy.
Because my son is so young, I was the one who stayed home with him to give out candies. Since it was fairly nice out at the time, I dressed him in his costume, carried him in the sling and stood out on the porch to distribute the treats.
Surprised baby pumpkin
The question I got the most: is this a real baby? Riiiight...
My two favourite pumpkins
So you must be wondering by now if I finished my Pumpkin Polonaise in time. Drum rolls please...
Mother of two
Alas no. I tried, and I have done some progress on it, but with a newborn at home, I was unable to finish it in time. Oh well! I'll have it done for next year and it will be better than if I had rushed at the last minute. Also, while cleaning my sewing room, I found some cotton with a Halloween print that would make great stays for this dress.
Nancy-Raven came over with her son, my godsson.
Nancy-Raven and her son
My daughter had not seen my godsson since the Costumer's Picnic and was somehow fascinated by him.
All three kids
Like me, Nancy-Raven did not have the time to make herself a new costume, so she wore the scrubs her honey was supposed to wear, while I pulled my Halloween classic Dark Maiden out of the closet.
Nancy-Raven the Nurse and Gwenyver the Witch
(She is going to hate me for posting this picture of her, I just know it.)
I guess I should get working on my outfit for the premiere of The Hobbit if I want to be done in time.
