As I am writing this it's 11:59 p.m. Actually. So Happy Halloween, yay! .....and welcome November!
I have no idea where October went. Somewhere involving lots of pink foam, proscenium designs and questionable structural drawings.
Anyways, I love halloween. I'm not sure what child didn't like mass amounts of free candy and running crazily down every dark street in their neighbourhood, but I thought it was great. However, I was never very creative with costumes. I was a cow once, a spice girl and queen amidala (sp??) but generally I leaned towards princesses, fairies and butterflies. I have so many princess costumes.
This year I decided I wanted to make my own non-princess costume. It was the best craft evening. Regardless of whatever any particular people happen to say, I think one can be a pretty adorable bird without wings...its all about pretty things anyways and I thought my costume was lovely, if not anatomically correct. Also, its much easier to dance in a dress...and without a beak.
Of course, I was inspired by this. Typical. Although I like mine better!
Oh. and remember beyblades?? My six year old cousins adore them and I spent a good chunk of saturday afternoon "battling" them. Needless to say I won almost every time. and I also now have gigantic cut on my hand, those things are intense. xo!
