The Inevitable Halloween Post

Surprise, surprise, I'm posting Halloween Pics! Babies make Halloween so much fun. I even dressed up this year! I was attempting to be Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany's (Yes, I totally stole that idea from you Rebecca dear, circa 2006). No body knew who I was. Lame.
Anyway, enough about me, Avery was a smash hit at our ward chili cook off. Her costume was stinking adorable. I crocheted it, and (here comes my horn tooting) I made up the pattern!
From my head.
For anyone who crochets, I'm sure you can appreciate what a feat it is to make up a pattern and have it turn out exactly like you want it to. It was a giant leap for my skills. Here are the pics to prove it.

Only in Arizona could you pull off a baby mermaid costume with bare skin...much to my niece's' chagrin, they thought Avery was immodest. Gotta love 8 year old girls.
That sums up our Halloween night, hope yours was just as great as ours!

What a way to celebrate...

Happy 4Th month birthday Avery! We celebrated your 1/3 year of life by taking your unknowing, happy self down to the county vaccine place, where you got poked by scary needles. It was awful. You cried, and I wanted to.

Poor girl. Tomorrow will be a much better day. Promise.
