It's official! I made my first custom Halloween costume.
About a month ago, Nathan and I were discussing the brightly colored Fall trees on the way home from preschool. I said we need to start thinking about what you want to be for Halloween. He quickly replied that he wanted to be a snowflake because he was ready for snow. I said okay. I asked again several times over the next week or so and the answer was always the same. So I got creative.
We went to the fabric store and Nathan picked out fluffy white fabric. I dug my sewing machine out and I started my trial and error. A couple weeks later we made a family trip to the Halloween store to find costumes for Mom and Dad. We found the coolest aviator goggles. We decided to incorporate them into the snowflake costume. The design continued to evolve. Now it is complete with an aviator hat and scarf. Nathan is a snowflake flying to Earth. I think it is the best costume ever!!!

Nathan loves to cook. I love to cook as well. But I especially like to cook with Nathan. Today we made lasagna. He is an expert egg breaker. Today, he mastered peeling garlic. Afterwards, we washed the dishes together. I washed and he rinsed. It was a perfect afternoon.
