Happy Halloween! Making Emma's Lamb Costume & Decorating Cookies

Boo!  Or should I say, "Baaaa!"

Our little lamb!

Here is the making of the costume.  I used a really soft, fuzzy blanket that I found, cut it out and sewed it together.  It may have been my most successful sewing project to date - complete with an oatmeal linen lining! 

Hey, Bright Eyes : )

Happy kids!

Sunday we took Emma to the Fairway Halloween festival at the park.  Sorry about the blurry picture... it is the only one I'm in!

Emma's Uncle Josh and Aunt Claire came to see her in her lamb costume.

Emma's very "in to" teeth and mouths...

Josh making a scary pumpkin... yikes!

Today Emma and I decorated cookies to take to her Mimi's house for Trick-or-Treating.

 Her first hands-on sugar cookie experience... of many, many more.  Next up- Thanksgiving cookies!

    Emma is such a happy baby and those eyes are so full of light, laughter and love. You can just tell she comes from a very happy home! The lamb costume was genius. I only wish my mom started me on cookie decorating at such a young age - I'm hopeless with royal icing!!

  8. Absolutely enchanting little lamb. Emma is such a beautiful and happy baby. Thank you for sharing this special day.
