i do enjoy making my kiddos costumes, even though i'm not a good seamstress. i think it goes back to my childhood and i always loved figuring out what i was going to be. 5th grade was my favorite year, i made a Rubik's cube costume out of a cardboard box and construction paper. too bad i don't have a picture of it!
this year, as we were trying to decide what they wanted to be, my little lady wanted something with pink hair. so, we came up with the idea of her being a flamingo. our little guy decided to be an owl.
