Abby Cadabby

I had no plans of making Alexa's costume this year, but we just couldn't find anything that we liked/that was in our price range, so I decided to attempt it. It turned out way better than I thought it would! I'm really quite proud of myself. Mike was Cookie Monster and I was Elmo to complete the theme.


It's amazing how at this age kids pronunciations change so quickly. But, it's getting closer, so that's good. Mike and I carved our pumpkins Sunday night, finally. We like doing themed jack-o-lanterns.
We had Alexa paint her pumpkin after her nap on Sunday, figuring that she was a little young to carve her own :) She had a grand time.

And got so into it that one paint brush just wasn't enough.

And once the paint was about 3 inches thick all the way around the pumpkin, I took it away and let her paint on the 'drop cloths'.
This is a picture of the paint right after she started, it was a brand new set when we started, and there was no paint left by the time I made her stop.

My 4 pumpkins:

And Mike deserves a shout out for cleaning both out pumpkins, since I can't do my own. Thanks, hun!
