My kids wanted to be angry birds characters for Halloween this year and after searching online, I couldn't find the right costumes. With a little encouragement from my handy friend Chrissy, we took a trip to the fabric store for supplies.
I used the patterns from twindragonflydesigns.com as a starting point and decided to wing it from there. The hardest part was teaching myself how to sew by hand... I'm crafty, but a seamstress has always been a close friend.
With a lot of breaks, it took two weeks to complete both costumes.

The first few weeks were really difficult, leaving the boy in tears in his classroom. My heart ached all day and I watched the clock for 10:30, when the teacher had her free period and would call if anything was wrong. There were a few calls, but mostly just me being a protective mom, and now the phone is silent. Each day when he gets in the car at pick-up time, his smile radiates a newfound confidence that makes me so incredibly proud.
Of course, the girl is excelling and doing stellar in private preschool. She is independent, fierce, strong minded.. the exact opposite of her brother. They are polar opposites and best friends just like their daddy and me.
I never thought I'd miss them so much after five years at home with them. The silence only emphasizes their absence. 3:00 is now like Christmas morning.
