Chris and I weren't sure if we wanted to get a Christmas tree this year, since we're going to be in Dubai with my parents for the holidays. But we went with Mahon and Cindy to go look at trees and we ended up talking about it a bit and deciding to get one, so here are the before and after pictures. Esau has been surprisingly good with the tree, he laid under it for a bit before we got it decorated, but hasn't bothered it since. Yay! That's a nice change from last year! But the Santa hat was just as hard to get him to ware as it was last year... poor guy, the things he has to put up with.
OK, I'm horrible at Blogging! Sorry
So this was our Halloween costumes, The Three Musketeers.
The idea came to us in August when we found the Three Musketeers movie on T.V. one night. So slowly but surly we got all the materials and I sewed the costumes, (Shirts, pants, tunics, hats, and sashes) Chris ordered our swords and big hat feathers on line. Chris' wig and our boots were just covers we found at a Halloween store.
We won a prize at our Ward Halloween party too. It was a little pumpkin flashlight.... we were the envy of every three year old. there was also a "Baby Elvis" that won, and a family of Ghost Busters.
Chris thinks I'm going to make different costumes next year too.... Ya right! these were a lot of work! I'm not doing this every year. I'm content to be a Musketeer for the next ten years, thank you!
