S'more Roses


As some of you may know, Hallie was supposed to be a little lamb for Halloween.  It was going to be great.  But, as most of you probably know, my imagination far exceeds my talent for actually making any of these crafty things I dream up.  So, I put the costume that I had been slaving over for weeks on her as a test run, and I could not stop laughing.  (At least I keep a sense of humor when I fail miserably... sometimes.)  All I could say was that she looked like a marshmallow.  Well, I was supposed to be Mary who Had a Little Lamb for the ward Halloween party, and of course, I couldn't be farmgirl Mary without a lamb, so I was stumped until it occurred to me that I could be chocolate. But then Devin was Jack and the Beanstalk all by himself, and wouldn't that be lonely?  I really struggled here because I had already finished his costume, and it actually looked great.  (In my opinion. Look for a Jack and the Beanstalk next year, I guess.)  But of course, I finally caved in to myself and decided he could be graham crackers.  So, here is Hallie's test run for her marshmallow costume.


And, here we are, the complete set.  I guess you can't really see that I am chocolate and Devin is a graham cracker, but we looked pretty sweet.  (ha ha.)

  4. hallie is beautiful ames! and i totally see the lamb there. All you needed was a little head band with some floppy lamb ears. but it was a nice save, it totally worked as well. i haven't made anything for the boys and wonder if i'll regret it someday. eh.
