Halloween May Commence

So, Cal was feeling a bit more cooperative on Monday. Isn't he awesome? I mean, I don't care so much what he thinks. I'M proud of this costume.


The sweater vest is just a luck thrift from Salvation Army. I made the little felt patch to help out anyone (small children for one) who might not know what an old fashioned golfer would look like. The hat pattern I found from this, aptly named, Clever Girl. It turned out a tad big for even my guy's head, ahem, so I just added a piece of elastic in the back to hold it tight, rather than fuss with pulling out seams, etc. As cute as I think the hat is, I doubt he'll chose to wear it for "regular life."


And so, the carving began.


With a lot of fun


and silliness.


And a request for polka dots, cuz that's how my girl rolls.


Spooktacular ;-)

Oh lots to say! I knew that Halloween outfit was going to look great and it does - my favorite I have to say most definitely of the three. You did an amazing job matching everything to that sweater you found.

Looks like you had so much fun with the pumpkins and I LOVE the polka dot pumpkin. I do wish we could get our girls together for these activities. Sigh....

The pumpkins out on the porch photo is great.

Oh Yes, Awesome! I used to sell golf knickers in the olden days, the 80's ; )
I am envious of the hat making skills and the carving skills!
Love the polka dots too!

OK, Mike gets a big "hats off" from me for using power tools on pumpkins! Why didn't I think of that?
