Making the most of life's journey alongside my three!!!

Happy Halloween October 31, 2012

Despite so many obstacles, things turned out alright.

My cow costume turned out alright after only one hour of sewing and a few finger burns from my hot glue gun. Amara helped me cut out my spots and Terra chose where they’d go.

Terra loved being Pocahontas. She kept asking me to reapply her lipstick.

Amara’s red squirrel tail was perfect for Trick-or-Treating

Sister love!

The girls did so well with Trick-or-Treat. They said “thank you” every single time šŸ™‚

Halloween was a hard holiday for me to pull off on my own. I felt bad about not having their father’s pumpkin carving skills and not being able to take them to as many festivities as I wanted to due to being a single parent, pregnant, and insanely busy with graduate school. I don’t think they felt slighted though. They both loved their costumes and had a wonderful time celebrating. I suppose it’s not always about how much you get to do, it’s how much you get to enjoy what you’re doing, and we had a good time doing everything.

Now…on to conquer Thanksgiving!
