Adorable, you are.

Dear Elliot,
A full post to come (including pics of you and your cousin Maddie trying to eat each other's faces at tonight's family pumpkin carving party), but I just have to share this picture of you in your Yoda Halloween costume.


Seriously, I can't get enough. Two of my favorite things in this world: Star Wars, and you. For trick-or-treating, I am going to be Princess Leia. The two of us are going to kill it! 

For anyone out there still in need of an easy costume, this was actually not hard to put together. The hat is from Esty (but if you're better at crocheting/knitting than I am, you could make it!), and the robe is made from a $1 Goodwill curtain, with a belt cut out of an old pillowcase. 

To make the robe, I folded my fabric in half, roughly drew a jedi-like robe on it, folded it in half, cut out the two pieces (on on top of the other), and sewed it together. Then I cut it down the middle to make it a robe. For the hood, just take a long rectangle, fold it in half, sew down the right side (like this), and attach to the robe. I am horrible with a sewing machine and was able to do this without any issues.

When Maddie pulled your hat off tonight, Dad said, "now he's Obi Wan!" So it totally works if you don't have the awesome hat, too :)

I have been looking forward to our first Halloween together since I first found out you existed. And it's totally surpassing all expectations.

Love you so much!

XOXO,
Mom

Does anyone know what might be going on with Kristin? I sent her an email a couple of weeks ago and never heard back. I'm getting more and more worried by the day. Could someone please provide an update? I really hope everything is ok and she is just super busy!!
Kristin - I'm saying prayers for you!
