Getting Ready for Halloween

I went to the orthodontist the other day and got my last set of power chains on. I decided to go all out and put on Orange and Black for Halloween. The assisstant that put them on said, "you will have to make sure your appointment is after Halloween." Well, my appointment for taking off my braces was set for Oct 24th and I'm not changing it!!!
I saw this idea several places and had to copy it. Here and here are some examples. I went to Walmart and picked up a $3 frame and used 3 different fonts and some scrapbook paper. It turned out pretty cute, I think.

I went to the thrift store for the first time the other day. It was a momentus occasion. I found a princess/fairy type outfit for $4 that would fit Emma. It needs a lot of work, but I was able to find some $2 material and some $4 butterflies. I think with a little sewing and some ribbon, it might turn out pretty cute! We also found a complete Buzz Lightyear costume that fits Max. He had to have it, even though we already had the stuff for him to be Indiana Jones. So now he has to figure out which one he is going to be this Halloween and which one he is going to be next year.

only one more month to a beautiful smile. We will need an after picture. Hope you haven't charge so much we don't know who you are. Most of your "dress up clothes" and hats from your youth came from the thrift shop. They are great places. Just ask sister Cindy who is the super thrift store shopper. Love Mom

So fun - I had braces for 10 months and would let the kids pick the colors too - kinda fun! And why shouldn't the moms have fun wearing braces right!!!

I'm surprised to say that I actually miss Walmart! Sounds like some great costumes!
