TRIPS, COSTUMES AND STUFF.....
October has always been a favorite month of mine.....Kaleb and Kevin's birthdays, my niece Shannon's birthday and my brother-in-law Herb's birthday (on Halloween lucky guy!) not to mention the Fryeburg Fair, Fall Foliage Festival and Pumpkin Fest and the changing color of the leaves. Tom and I took a day off from work last week and ventured to the Fryeburg Fair and into the White Mountains. Foliage was past peak but still very colorful - we even ran into very wet snow - they can have it.
My sewing machine needles have been flying - thank God my mother was a great seamstress and taught me a lot about sewing and thank God I got all those Girl Scout merit badges for sewing way back then. I don't sew often enough anymore to be good at it but I managed to put together these 3 (out of 5) costumes since I last blogged. Kayden wants to be a ghost, Tom wants to be "Count A-Fraud" (a spoof on Arod of the Yankees) and I'm going to be an Indian princess. Left to do is Kyle's (he's created his own mystery monster again this year..now all I have to do is follow his picture) and Kaleb's Bowser. Kaleb had his heart set on being Bowser but his Mom and Dad couldn't find the costume for it - well, being the good Grammie that I am I printed a picture of Bowser and showed it to Kaleb at Kyle's soccer game with my ideas on how to create it. Mind you Kaleb has a broken wrist so the sleeve will have to be velcro'd. Needless to say he was all smiles - the turtle shell will take some creativeness but I think I can pull it off! Stay tuned. 150 Back River is changing over to Halloween - in the S.H.O.P. for the party and on the outside doors.
Happy Columbus Day everyone!
