Emma's costume saga.

Ok, so I like to make the girl's costumes for Halloween every year (the boys have grown out of it :( ...) and so we went to JoAnn's because stupid Walmart closed their fabric section. Emma picked out a costume,but they were out of that pattern, so she picked another one that looked cute. Madison decided that we would dye her baptism dress black and she would be a witch. So we get home with all the stuff and I looked more closely at the pattern for Emma's costume and I thought ohh @#^&$! Very detailed... I should have figured it out when I was having to buy all these beaded ribbons and stuff. Anyway I finally got it done last night....
Madison's dress, of course wasn't the right fabric to dye, but we got lucky and found a beautiful princess dress at a consignment store by our house that she loves. Yea!

Let's take a drive!

We finally traded in our tiny, little white car for a Yukon XL. It's huge and gets horrible gas mileage, but we love it! We took a trip to Prescott and stayed with Tom and Dawn on their trap bed. (I'll have to do a post on that, its very funny.) Anyway, while we were there we went and talked to Melanie's car friend and he got a great deal for us. I was so glad to get rid of that car, it was cute, but it only had 55,000 miles on it and it was already starting to fall apart. The radio broke (the worst part if you ask me), the engine light wouldn't turn off, the airbag light was on and the fuel door wouldn't stay closed. The Yukon has lots and lots of room and has Bose speakers, yea! Now we have to take a road trip somewhere.....
