I've been busy with Halloween this year for once.  Usually, I'm not terribly into Halloween, but now that I have a child who adores dressing up, Halloween has become a big deal.  His first Halloween, he was a teddy bear.

I just can't wrap my head around how long ago this picture was!

Last Halloween, he was a monkey, which was quite possibly the hottest costume in the entire state of Florida.  This probably bordered on cruelty.  Lesson learned.

This photo was taken before he was drenched in sweat, thankfully.  It was not pretty.

This year, he's going to be the Cat in the Hat.

Yes, I know I could have bought the hat from the party store, but making it was a ton of fun.

He's obsessed with all things Dr. Seuss, especially the Cat in the Hat and the sequel, The Cat in the Hat Comes Back.  When we went shopping for the felt to make his hat at Jo-Ann's, he told everyone who was willing to listen that he was going to be the Cat in the Hat for Halloween.  Keep in mind, this was the first week of September.  So far, the excitement's carried through to October.  When he sees the pumpkins in stores and such, he'll talk about trick-or-treating, though he has no idea really what that means.  He just know he's going to be doing it.  And soon.  That is, after Mommy gets her act together and makes the rest of the costume...


Welcome! I'm Elizabeth, mom to a mood teen boy and a chatty six-year-old girl and I sew for my sanity. Let's get to quilting, shall we?
