Some pictures from our church Harvest Festival

Ack guys!! I have been so frantic the last few days getting ready for the Harvest Festival. I had to finish costumes, research costumes (for me) and yesterday I was cooking pretty much the whole day. *big sigh of relief* so the party was great (we got there late though, I was doing Tyler's make up ha ha!!) Now I just need to worry about MY party on Monday and then Halloween will officially be OVER. Thank goodness. I'm ready for some holiday baking and CHRISTMAS. (Yes I know that Thanksgiving is in between Halloween and Christmas) anyway, so be ready for a blogging overload today, I've got some cute, yummy, and crafty things for you that made last night a success (and then I need to crack down on my menu plan for Monday) First up, my adorable girlies!!!

 Hee hee! I just couldn't resist this one.

 It was really hard to get a picture with all the PUFF and still be able to see their cute faces.

 I don't know what she's looking at but I love the tongue! lol!

 More hugs!
 Okay so there's a mini story behind my costume. I came across this gorgeous fabric several years ago at the thrift store, I would say I've had this in my "stash" for 6 or 7 years now. Loved it, but it's something that you can't cut up. It's got a silver boarder on the top and bottom and a section that is more decorated. I always thought it looked like a sarong or a saree. So yesterday I've spent the whole day cooking or getting things for the girl's outfits so I don't have much time, so I pull out this fabric and do a youtube search on how to tie a saree. Seriously beautiful, I love it. And I looked up the mark on the forehead thing, and learned that it's more a cultural thing to signify marriage and not a religious thing (I didn't want to be mocking someone else's religion) but my "mark" is actually a blue stick on gem, but you can't tell in the picture. I wanted Tyler to be an Indian man, but I couldn't figure out the turban wrap, even when watching a how to video, he was happier being a pirate anyway. His favorite thing was all the comments he got from people saying that they couldn't figure out who he was. lol! I guess a wig and some eye makeup go a long way. :D I'll get another picture of him at our party on Monday. 

Someone said I looked like a "Goddess of the Sky" lol! I'll take it people!! :)
P.S. Want to know how I made the girl's dresses? That's coming up next! ;)

  1. The dresses look wonderful! Tyler {I'll be honest.. he looks a little weird. Is i the makeup? The long hair?... oh well... that's what Halloween's about right? Not being yourself?}

    It looks like you guys had a good time. Our party is coming up this Saturday... I'm excited to hang out with all the ADULTS! Grown-up conversation! Yes!
