Vampire Ball {Halloween 2014}

So our final costumes for Halloween were for the Vampire Ball, which was a party held on November first in the Officer’s club on Osan AB. My dress is made from a silk corset, that I trimmed in lace and boned with basket reeds. The under skirt is black damask fabric, and the over dress…

A Witch and a Plague Doctor {Halloween 2014}

    Since my mom was visiting, I made her a Halloween costume too! Because she grew up in Africa, she has never had a real Halloween costume, so it was fun making her one! She wore the witches hat that went with Emmie’s costume last year, and was a medieval style witch. I made…

Elsa {Halloween 2014}

      So, Miss Emmie (along with a million other little girls this year) wanted to be Elsa, I told her that she would be in the same costume as a lot of people, but alas the Frozen heart wants, what the Frozen heart wants! I made the dress out of a blue poly…

Woody and Bo Peep {Halloween 2014}

    Paul got excited a couple of weeks ago, because he found a stitched hat, that he thought would be perfect for a Woody costume, so of course I had to make him one (It’s not often that he’s the excited one that comes up with a plan!) I made Paul’s yellow shirt out…

Halloween Decor {just a couple of years late}

I know I am a bad blogger, we have been so busy lately I haven’t even cared! We have my mom in town right now, which has been so fun, and literally as she flew in to Korea to meet us, we were flying from Hong Kong, back to Korea, from an amazing whirlwind trip…

Emmie’s 11th Birthday {flashback post}

The other day I shared a post about Emmie’s small and understated 12th birthday party, and today I am back with her 11th birthday (I am so behind on posts….) Emmie decided that she wanted to have a circus theme for her party, and we tried really hard to thread the theme throughout within the…

Roman Costume Flashback

    So today, I have sort of a funny/weird post; earlier I was going through pictures so that I could edit them for a guest post I am doing, and I came across some pictures from last year that I never posted. Emmie had a Social Studies class, that for their end of year…

Halloween 2013 {part 3}

Today I am sharing the Halloween costume that I might secretly like the most out of the 3 I worked on this year; (and not just because it took less work than any of the others,) but because of how *Isaac* it really is! Isaac decided that he wanted to be his musical hero Weird…

Halloween 2013 {part 2}

Hello! Today was a brilliant day here in Spain; I got to go to the Royal Tapestry Workshop and see the weavers in action, which was awesome (but alas no pictures allowed.) BUT I do have a rather picture intensive post today; in complete contrast to yesterday’s puppy costume, today I have Emmie’s Witch costume…

Halloween 2013 {part 1}

Hello from Spain!!! I am on the last leg of our 2 month long trip to the US with a week of Spain, and Istanbul mixed in at the end. The kids are with my mom in the US, so I unfortunately will be missing Halloween with them this year, BUT I did manage to…
