First of all, I have lost 23 pounds now, and I've been trying to take in all of my pants and tops so that I have SOMETHING to wear that isn't WAY too big or a bit too small still. (No pictures, since they would be boring photos of jeans and sweaters that I took apart and sewed back together, just minus a little fabric...)
Second, I decided to try quilting again... This time, I enjoyed it a lot more. I think it's just that I'm starting to get the hang of half-square triangles, and that opens up a lot more cool looking blocks.
Third, my kids kept changing their minds on Halloween costumes, so I've been going crazy trying to adjust what I had already started to fit what they wanted. The result is still super cute! Isaac is Toothless from "How to Train Your Dragon" - the movie. Jonathan is The Green Death from "How to Train Your Dragon" - the book. (Originally, Isaac wanted to be a Ninja Turtle and Jonathan started as a hobbit, then was a dinosaur, and then, and then...)
Jon's dragon face:
Isaac said Toothless isn't mean, so this was his "Toothless" face:
Not sewing, because I was lazy and used safety pins, but I made the boys each a "tent" over their bunks. Isaac's is the favorite of the two:
And, it snowed... The boys just enjoy getting bundled up. They must, because that takes longer than the amount of time they actually spend in the snow. (Jon is totally rocking the one glove look...)
This is how snow adventures end....
Today, we went Trick-or-treating at the Children's Museum. My phone was out of memory, so I only got two pictures...
Isaac and Lydia inside a bubble:
My sewing projects aren't all done yet, but at least the ones with deadlines are! Yay! Hopefully, this week I'll also get to finish repainting a filing cabinet and dropping a bunch of stuff at the thrift store - that would make life a little easier, even if the pictures would be boring.
