The Fall Festival at our church this year was so much fun!
I spent the week putting together Emolyn's Little Mermaid costume,
so I could hardly wait for them to arrive!
And I must say, she made quite a splash! (I know, I had to say it)
I found the mermaid tail at Savers and then reconstructed it to fit Emolyn.
And then after many attempts, I finally gave up and bought a girl's bra at JC Penney Outlet
and transformed it into Ariel's "crab bra". (as Emolyn calls it)
When I was done, I sprayed it with fabric adhesive and gave it a generous dusting of glitter.
I am more than pleased with how it turned out. And so was Emolyn!
Introducing ~ The Little Mermaid family!
I made 75 miniature cupcakes for the Cupcake Walk that Randy & I love doing for the kids.
And they were gone pretty fast!
The kids loved walk 'n rock 'n to Phil Collin's Tarzan CD!
Point the camera in Emolyn's direction ~ when she's in her element ~ and the girl shines!
This innocent bystander got caught in the middle of Emolyn's theatrics,
or maybe he was just a prop for her spontaneous antics.
But he sure was a good little sport... and as cute as can be!
Ariel ~ King Triton ~ Ursula ~ Sebastian
Our son Tyler loves Clint Eastwood movies and recently watched all his Spaghetti Westerns.
So this year he dressed up as "The Man with No Name" for Halloween.
I love that my adult kids still love pretending and playing dress-up.
And Halloween gives them (and us) permission to do just that!
