My Roaming Gnome!

My Travelocity Roaming Gnome!

Our handmade costume...not because I am creative but because we waited until the last minute!

On Saturday we grabbed all of our supplies:
Blue Felt
Stiff Red Fabric
and Poster Board.

We cut a wrap around vest (new sewing involved...just strategic cutting) out of the blue felt and put it over a long sleeved blue shirt. Borrowed one of Kaia's belts and wrapped it around Blake's waist. Dave made a cone shaped hat out of the poster board and then last night we took spray adhesive and attached the fabric and batting to the hat to make the gnome beard and eyebrows.  Blake is so proud.

But he is even prouder of what he and daddy created last night....

Isn't he cute with his puffy warty nose and face?

This is my first year without a picture of both my kids together. Kaia isn't dressing up for school...but hopefully tonight I can grab one of them together. She is being a school-girl wizard...Luna..something or other from Harry Potter.

Happy Halloween!
