Wow, I was trying to come up with a costume for quite a while. Finally, I was shopping at Shopko for a diaper tote (which no one seems to have, btw) and found this CUTE hat and glove set for Claire that look like lamb wool with ears. I decided on that for a costume. I am a very poor seamstress, but I did my best. It is one of the most patchy jobs of sewing anyone can imagine, but the overall affect is pretty adorable---if nothing more than it being Claire that makes it so. Anyway, we took her to Old Navy (costumes were on sale for $5. For next year, though). If she came all dressed up, we were to recieve a coupon for a free tee shirt. So, Nick got a shirt for $6, Claire got a costume for $5 (normally $30---woohoo), I got a shirt for free and I got to show off Claire in her homemade costume prior to Halloween.
Nick was dressing her init this morning and he mentioned that it should come with instructions because it was so poorly designed. I'm sure it's true, but he did a good job getting her into it anyway. Isn't she adorable!?
