Allison decided a couple weeks ago to be Minnie Mouse so Ian was Mickey Mouse. I modified a Simplicity
pattern, view F, to have a fuller skirt and added a sash. I made Ian a pair of pants from another Simplicity
pattern. They turned out really cute so I’m going to make a couple more pairs for church and general wear this winter.
I didn’t get a good picture of the dress yet. I’m going to try and get a couple pictures outside this week while the weather is still nice.
Allison love trick or treating. She went to a few houses around the neighborhood then we went to a friend’s house for a party.
We had a busy October and I can’t believe it’s already November. We went to Disneyland a couple weeks ago and had a great time. Even though it was 5 days, looking back it feels like it flew by.
We saw Mickey Mouse and rode Small World waaaay too many times. Allison loved it.
Even Ian went on a couple of rides. He spent most of the time in the stroller and the moby wrap but he was good.
Daddy cut his hair short the other day and now he and Ian look like twins 🙂
Bean has an unorthodox way of using the pacifier. I gave it to him to chew on since he’s teething his top teeth and he prefers to chew on it sideways. Such a silly boy. He’ll be six months tomorrow. The time has flown with the second one.
Ian love, love, loves the doorway bouncer. He could spend hours in it if we let him. When he’s not in it, he makes me bounce him up and down. Tiring, but a great arm workout.
I’m impatiently waiting for my serger to come back from the repair shop. I hope it can be fixed without too much cost. I have so many projects that I could use it for. I also have some quilt stuff to do. I signed up for a quilt-along at a local store as well as the free quilting classes they offer. So hopefully, at the end of a year, I’ll have a whole quilt top done.
