write it down

There are exactly two full days (and some kinda half ones) before Halloween... and I, Dawn aka last Minute Lucy, have finished gathering and creating my kid's costumes. Did you hear that? Two full and some kinda half days I had left to do this... but tonight I am done. Yes. That means no last minute green paint on the crocodile ten minutes before trick-or-treat. That means no fringing of Pocahontas's' dress as she is heading out the door. Write it down. Really. Because it will probably never happen again. I can only say I was scared I wouldn't get it done... and that had to be my motivation. Between now and then, there isn't much time... in fact I am not quite sure when those pumpkins are going to turn into jack-o-lanterns. Perhaps tomorrow between 5:15 and 5:45? At least the costumes are complete. Wanna guess?


Easy, huh?

Well, we've had the custome for a week or two, but I just pushed order and bought it online from Kohl's. I'm pretty that discounts me from even entering this contest.

I'd love to see pictures of the kids all dressed up.

Sign me up for the last minute club! I am impressed you make your own--I so wish I would, but alas....

I am excited to see your creations come to life!
