Trick or Treat

First up…Mary Poppins..Destiny wanted to be Mary Poppins..so off we went to Goodwill we found the black coat, white shirt and black skirt there on the dollar rack..Score!!!  but the problem was they were a women's size 18…so we had scale it down a couple of sizes..;) We also found the carpet bag and the shoes at Goodwill too…and found the umbrella and the hat at a garage sale..of course we had to make the hat too bc it wasn’t any were close to Mary Poppins..we spray painted it black and found some wood balls and painted them red for the cherries and I had some daisy flowers that we stuck to the hat.I also made the red bowtie to go along with it. I think we did a pretty good job. I think she makes a great Mary Poppins!!!

and finally the twins..the show stoppers..boy did they get a lot of attention last night..They were Thing 1 and Thing 2 from Dr. Seuss. I made there hats out of a white beanie hat and blue feather boas and just kept gluing it around the hat and then glued a red bow in it. I found some red shirts and my friend cut out the vinyl for there shirts and then I ironed them on.

So, uh, which kiddo popped her elbow out of socket by wrapping the safety strap around her arm? And why do people stare? If you have the time to stare, you have the time to help. Just saying
