Stand still will ya!

Taking photos of my kids is challenging. They *never* stop moving. Well one might, but good luck getting them both still! Here’s some shots of Wesley’s costume, complete with sequin covered ‘hose’ and Nate’s Old Navy knock off costume.

I made Nate’s entire costume out of things on hand. A fact that is both impressive and kinda hoarder-like. It was ridiculously simple. I just cut a big rectangle, took a hole out of it, cut 2 hoodie pieces, assembled them and then stitched them to the hole. It was like a big poncho type things. Then I decorated the belly and added the elastic to gather up the bottom. I’m pretty impressed with myself (you’d figure I’d be over that shocking “Wow I’m pretty craft!” phase by now)

Hope you had a great Halloween!

  1. I have the same problem with my kids. Always moving! Especially the 3-year-old. The one who can understand me saying, “Stand still!” is worse than the baby who cannot. I resorted to flash last night because at least I could see them both clearly that way! Your kiddos look cute as can be!

  2. Thanks for posting the pictures of the kids in their costumes! I so enjoyed seeing them – I miss Wesley! Say Hi to him for me! I enjoy reading your entries too! I am taking a little break from writing reports!

  3. So funny you commented today, I just said at dinner I’ve been wanting to email you a ‘I miss you’ email. Hang in there, they’ll get done!
