Max, I love the "Indian princess named Rainbow"! That is so cute. Phoebe had decided a few weeks before Halloween that she wanted to be a princess, inspired by the flimsy but cute ballerina dress DH bought for her to play with at the thrift store. So we headed back to the thrift store in search of a women's skirt in a great fabric to make into a cape. We found this wonderful soft, flowy velour and I put some decorations on it and she was good to go. She wore that to her preschool party the Tuesday before Halloween. Then on the 30th we were dressing up for some events and she announced that the dress was itchy and the cape annoyed her neck. So she dug through her dress-up stuff and put together an adorable fairy costume. But then for Trick or Treating the next day, she decided to squeeze into the plushy bug costume she wore when she was 1! For my school parade, I was the periodic table. I made a shower curtain that has the periodic table on it into a cape and then in science class with my kids we all made me a crown with assorted odds and ends they found around the classroom to represent different elements. For a party with friends, I was a witch. And then my friend's baby was playing with my hat and scratched my eyeball with it as she was flinging it around. That hurt like hell for three days!
I think a lot of people can answer the "what were you for Halloween" with a LOT fewer words!
Max, I hope the business/job nightmare works out soon. What a hassle!
I'm headed out to the garden to close up the greenhouse for the winter. We have 3 kinds of lettuce growing in there and some spinach too! It was warm enough in the greenhouse to keep growing tomatoes in there up until a week or so ago. I made a ton of salsa with the last of them--in November! I love having a greenhouse.
This thread is over 6 months old now. Maybe it's time for a new one?
I'll start one later if no one beats me to it.
