well, the weather is changing. we had some hail and snow recently, but i hear this week is supposed to warm up again. i love the fall weather. i like layering clothes. emmy likes to wear tights, but we've been having a hard time so far finding them in the stores. i told her that she can't wear dresses outside until we get her some tights. she's really upset because she just loves to wear dresses. she has some really cute pants, but i guess she is just too particular in her style to want to wear them. i have no idea where she gets that from. maybe from her daddy. wink! anyway, i do love the autumntime. i like halloween and i love thanksgiving. i think that we might go to two thanksgiving meals. my family has one around lunchtime and derek's family has one around dinnertime. oh yeah! double shot! we'll see if it works out. maybe we'll just choose one or the other. let's see, which family do we like better? ha ha!
this year for halloween i think that i will be a bumblebee. all i need is a big yellow sweatshirt. i could make a tunic out of fleece if i wanted, but it would just be easier to find a sweatshirt and cut the sleeves off. the dollar store has wings, so that part is easy. i better buy them now before they all get sold out. emmy wants to be tinkerbell. she needs wings, too. i think we'll make andrew a turtle. that shouldn't be too hard. i've recruited my sister rachel's help. she's good at drawing stuff. she can make the turtle pattern on the fabric. anyway, i may post pictures on here of the costumes. we'll see.
