I love Halloween # 5 & 6

Number 6: Sewing!

For me, sewing Halloween costumes is more fun then sewing any thing else. How often do you get to work with feathers, coins, sequins, ribbons, and jewels? People in the ward ask me if I sew anything else and I do I just complain a bit more while doing it. Coincidentally that is why sewing is not further up on the list. Sometimes I get so frustrated with the whole thing I want to through my seam ripper across the room, but only sometimes! I have made Shy's costume every year and Reed's costume two out of three years (he was only three weeks old his first Halloween). Last year I made the whole cast of Peter pan. This year I made my kids and Gage's but my best story is three years ago. Kemarie asked to be Hermione from the forth Harry Potter film. The problem, the movie was not out until December! There were no patterns and limited release photos on the internet. It turned out pretty good and was a fun challenge.

Number 5: Getting Scared

I don’t like the guts and gore stuff, that’s more gross then scary. But I do find my DVR full of real ghost stories and spooky tales from the travel and scifi channel. Most of the time, I don’t believe what they say but its fun to pretend all the same.
