Where have I been???

What the heck?  I knew I'd been gone too long when one of my DARLING friends played the word BLOG in our Words With Friends game... along with a "hint, hint" message.  GOT'CHA.
To quickly catch you up, I've been doing this...



For those of you who don't live in my neck of the woods... these are HOMECOMING OVERALLS.  A local tradition is for the girls to decorate overalls to wear to to school and to the HC game to hold up the GIGANTIC MUMS they wear to the game... these are mini versions that I made for the "little sisters" because heaven forbid they get left out of the fun.  You can only imagine what my dining room looked like during the creation process.  OY.

And the MUMS... here is a pic of one of the most extravagant and creative I saw at the game... too big to even get the girl in the picture!


Your eyes do not deceive you... it lights up!

Not to leave Sweet Son out of the festivities (it was HIS homecoming afterall, HA!)... SS and darling date at the game with their mums, and all dressed up and ready for dinner and the dance...



And of course... there's was Halloween.


Diners, Drive-ins, and Dear Daughter!  Most FUN part of this costume was the tray... Dollar store Coke tray and plastic glass... we put a pink napkin inside the cup to make it look like a shake.  The burger and hot dog?  Those are rawhide dog treats... HA!  All glued down so she could carry it around as one piece.  Oh, and she was smacking gum for extra effect...


This weekend is her BIG 12th birthday party... promise to be back with highlights of that extravaganza!

Wow! Fun times. Girls wore what we called football mums when I was in high school, but nothing like that! Love the costume!
