For Halloween, we browsed many websites looking for costume ideas. Kendyll finally decided to be a 50's girl! So, we enlisted the help of Mimi to make the poodle skirt. We shopped for the materials to make it, and then sent it off to Mimi's house for her to sew it. As Kendyll says, "Momma can't sew." Nice, huh?!? I was worried that she would change her mind about her costume, but she didn't. Phew!
Before the big night, we carved our pumpkin. We sketched out many different designs before Kendyll chose one. Here she is drawing a face for our consideration.
Kendyll reluctantly helped Daddy with the pumpkin. She was very hesitant to pull the top off to reveal the insides. When she did, she dry heaved and had very teary eyes. Needless to say, she stayed at arms length for the duration of the carving.
The finished product!
Here's my adorable 50's girl, ready to head off into the night for some tricks and treats!
