Are You Planning a Spooky Halloween?

My son always dressed up in something gross for Halloween. When I look back I am surprised at some of the things I let him do. I actually made him a Freddy Krueger costume. I must have been nuts!

Now that I am a grandmother, I realize that different children seem to be able to handle different things and situations. I have found that not all children can distinguish between fantasy and reality.

These are some great costumes that are spooky but not scary.

Sorry this item has been sold out.
This bat costume is too cute! Your little one will be so spooky.

Adorable little Frankenstein costume. Top quality detailed baby costume is crafted from quality materials and detailed with appliqué.

My younger brother decided to take my son to see a movie called “Basket Case” when he was three years old. When they entered the movie they were passing out surgical masks for everyone to wear. These were to prevent the blood from splattering off the screen and all over your face. I was horrified, but my son never suffered any damage from this.

Get me to school on time!

My granddaughter wakes up from her nap just before we have to run out the door to pick up her brother from school. I try to have her at least half dressed, or have her clothes laid out beside her. Once she was so tired that I picked her up while she was still in her pajamas, grabbed  the clothes beside her, and put her in the car. I figured if we had to get out I would have her clothes.

Looking at this dress I realized that it would be perfect to put on her before she took her nap. When she woke up she would be ready to put on her shoes and head out the door.

This dress would be very convenient if you were going out at night. Just bathed your daughter, and put this dress on her. When you come home brush her teeth, wash her hands, and tuck her in bed. This dress makes a great night gown.

I like the idea that it is a simple A-line dress with nothing that would poke her while she was sleeping.

Welcome to the Wild West

I spent some time in Texas while I was growing up with my uncles, aunts, cousins and other family and friends. We all had a hunting lodge with bunk beds. During the day we would go out and walk forever in the woods. (I can’t tell you how many cowgirl boots I’ve had in my lifetime, but my oldest brother still wears them.)  Our adventures were amazing!

When I was a teenager I dressed up like an Indian for Halloween. I had long hair so I braided it. When I saw this costume I thought this would have been perfect. I could have worn it for Halloween, out to dinner, to a party, or a dance. Wearing this to a dance would be fun because of the full twirlly skirt.

This faux suede skirt set is 100% polyester. The full skirt has a fringed hem with an elastic waist, drop yoke, and full twirly skirt. The matching long sleeve tee has fringe across the front, and half fringed sleeves. Looks great with boots!

Tonight we will have a dinner, and his party, at his great-grandmothers. Lots of food, family, presents, cake and ice cream.

This is not my grandson, but what you think of the new hat I got for his birthday?

What is the Autumnal Equinox?

An Equinox happens twice every year. The spring equinox (vernal) has passed, and on September 22, 2009 we will have the fall equinox (autumnal). At the time of the equinox, the night and day are approximately equally long.

The name "equinox" is from the Latin word aequus (equal) and nox (night). At an equinox, the Sun is at one of two opposite points on the celestial sphere. These points of intersection are called equinoctial points: the vernal point and the autumnal point.

An equinox happens every year around March 20/21 and September 22/23. These are two specific moments in time, not two whole days.

What does this mean to us?  Our days will be getting shorter. Fall is truly here and colder weather is on the way.  Get warm with our coats and hoodies.

Little Dinosaur

Onesies have been a favorite for a long time.

I love holding any baby, but a baby in a onesie is easier to hold because their clothes stay put. There is no tugging and pulling to keep your babies back and tummy covered and warm.

A big dinosaur for a big boy!

This cute little onesie has a dinosaur screen print that wraps  around the side. Contrast ribbing on lap shoulder neck line, sleeves, and bottom. Three snap crotch. Fits Babies 0-6M
