Finished the Halloween Costumes

Every year I go through the same cycle.  I always got beautifully done handmade costumes when I was a kid (I had to cover them up with a snowsuit ... but that's a separate rant).  I want my children to have the same quality of costumes that I did.

I'm not impressed with the costumes in the stores.  They're flimsy and, other than the princess costumes, badly done.  So that means I make my kids' costumes every year.

And every year we begin with a cool idea.

 Then I start sewing and hot-glue gunning.

Then I start worrying that I won't have enough time to get everything done.

Then I feel like a failure because my skills don't match what I wanted to do.

Then I pull it all together and the kids seem happy with the results.

And I tell myself that next year, I'll make things simpler.  Until next year arrives and I start all over again.
