Happy Halloween!

Caden decided to be a Steampunk Gentleman this year for Halloween:
Here is a closer look at some of the Steampunk costume details:

I’m not sure why, but this Steampunk costume was SO much more difficult than I had anticipated. Then, after seven very long painful days of hand sewing, the end result gets completely overshadowed by the creepy stash! Or maybe it was that my child is more "punk" then Gentleman? Apparently the mustache was my fault, I guess the kids is too, but it was supposed to be a 1920’s “Crumbcatcher”, however, I accidently applied it upside down making it appear more 1980’s Magnum P.I.! Oh well… I mean really, I love Tom Selleck, I just wasn’t ready for my 12 year old to look like him!

Here is a look at some of the other (painful sewing projects) Halloween costumes I have created for Caden over the years: 
2007 The Ghost (Age 4)  
2008 The Goblin (Age 5)
2009 The Rotten Rocker (Age 6)
2010 The Satyr (Age 7)

2011 The Vampire (Age 8)
2012 The Mummy (Age 9)  2013 The Devil (Age 10)  
2014 The Wearpanther (Age 11)

Hope you are enjoying your little Ladies and Gentleman this windy fall weekend! Have A Very Happy Halloween!

Seriously Amy, your skills are amazing. Wondering if you can tutor me in adulthood. I can in return teach you the art of accepting hugs from random acquaintances, fair?

Love you Beth, I must be a better actor then I thought! Maybe I can help with whether it’s a Hi Five or a Wave instead? You go ahead and hug away lady, I’m pretty sure I’m broken as far as that goes! Thank you about Caden’s costume – I think he too will be sporting it for the dance, also sans weaponry….
