Do you believe in fairies?
Well, I do. When my daughter asked to be a flower fairy for Halloween this year, I was happy to make this costume for her. I had a lot of fun with it...especially the little hat! The boys are just putting together simple costumes this year, with things that they already have. It won't be long before they've outgrown the tradition. That makes me a little sad. We've had so much fun over the years. The kids would start thinking about costumes months before Halloween, changing their minds many times before making their ultimate choice. My favorites are the years they have chosen a theme and dressed up together...The boys have been Tigger & Pooh and Buzz & Woody. The first year that all three went out, they were firemen and their dalmatian dog. There was the Star Wars year...Darth Maul, Obi Wan Kenobi and Queen Amidala. Two years in a row, they were X-Men characters. The boys have also been Legolas & Aragorn from Lord of the Rings. I have so much fun making their costumes, adding all of the accessories, and making them as close to the originals as possible. They let their imaginations run wild at Halloween, taking mine right along with them. Yes, I will definitely miss this.
