Photo update


Colin got a haircut this weekend. Anthony did, too. I'm their barber, which is great because it saves money and I get to be creative. But sometimes, its a chore. Man, I look so serious, and wrinkly!


I bought Colin's Halloween costume today - Buzz Lightyear. He tried it on for a nanosecond, then wanted Anna to try it on. She really hammed it up, and he loved looking at her in it.


Here Anna demonstrates her loose tooth. Anna wants to be Lightning McQueen for Halloween, but wants to make her costume, not buy it. "Mommy, I'll just get a box and color it with my red marker!" I think it will be a little more laborious project than that, but we are going to give it a whirl.

Tonight at bedtime, Anna tripped and knocked her head on the end of the bed. She cried a lot, then said, "It hurts like all the teeth in your mouth were loose, it hurts!!!"

ooh, the red marker project sounds daunting. I think I'd try to convince her she needed some red vinyl from the fabric store to glue-gun to the box. Just my 2 cents,

Love,
your sister who once ambitiously created home-sewn costumes the night before halloween and this year bought them ready-made from costumeexpress.com ;)

Ooooh, am seriously envious of the Buzz Lightyear costume, Luke is sooooo into Toy Story at the moment, and we have to sit through Toy Story 1 and Toy Story 2 on a daily basis (yawn). He has to have a costume for preschool and am frantically trying to find a Buzz Lightyear one.

Steph, I remember helping you work on Paige's costume the night before Halloween! It turned out great, I thought....


Love the pic of Colin! He is sitting so still...Considering boys of that age, he must have been wathcing a fav. movie or something to hold his attention span for more than 2 seconds! =)
And, doesn't Anna look hilarious in her bro's costume? Too cute. The last picture is so descriptive... you can tell her tooth is hurting her, yet she wishes to show it off!

Good post!

XOXOXOX!

Paula, I just did a quick search, and you can get a Buzz costuma at disneystore.co.uk and at thekidswindow.co.uk. They have different styles; both are cute!

Yea, I'm the barber in my house too, I just line up the boys/men in front of the t.v. and fire up the clippers and just like that I've saved $60. A great thing.
