This One's For You, Connie

This week's Foreign Service RoundUp, compiled by Connie, has a theme: Halloween.

I've been kind of too busy to think about Halloween.

In addition to my manic baking (see previous post), I've picked up a few freelance jobs and am just a wee bit over my head trying to figure out health care reform and holistic healing and website design and some other random things. Oh, and I have four kids to keep alive. One of whom wants to be a mermaid for Halloween.

Which brings me back to the title of this post. Connie asked for Halloween, so here it is: the front of Ainsley's mermaid costume. I still have to do the back, but I'm having trouble with that - she keeps taking it and carrying it around the house. I guess she likes it.

Kyra likes it, too. Which is unfortunate, because she was all set to be Belle again this year, until she saw the mermaid tail. Now she wants one. I predict I'm about to get busier...

Please tell me this looks mermaidy to you. Please?

I definitely see the tail! Although it sounds like the most important judge has already weighed in positively. Very creative!

Wow, for someone who claims that they don't do much sewing, that's pretty impressive!
