Halloween has snuck up on me. I kept telling myself, "oh, it's next week, you have so long, take your time. . . " and I just realized, no. All of our costume-centric activities happen this weekend, which means tomorrow, which means I have got some serious work to do.

One of the new winter tops I made for R. I really love this fabric - it's a double gauze which makes it super soft and comfy, and the animals floating around just kill me with their cuteness. We call it her "secret bunny" top.
It really is next to impossible to get a good shot of this lady lately, so I had to sneak my camera out while R was trying to coax a smile from the little one.

R's little friends came over last week for pumpkin decorating. We had grand plans of actually carving something, but surprisingly none of the kids wanted to get their hands dirty with the goop and seemed uninterested in the idea of cutting them up. Luckily we had a back-up painting plan (thanks Grandma Judy!). It was a total success.

One of the things about not keeping up with this blog is that I have a whole stack of projects I've finished but never photographed. I am going to try and make a permanent record of all this hard work in the coming weeks. Unfortunately R is not the easy model she used to be, and most photographs have to be backed with bribes of tattoos and play dough. Totally worth it.

Poor little N. As is the case with almost every second child I know, pretty much everything that she has is second hand. From the bassinet she sleeps in at night to the teeny tiny socks we put on her feet - it's all been used before. I figured she needed at least one thing to call her very own - and I needed something to knit.
