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…

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…
