Well, I always said that I wouldn't ever decorate for any holiday because "it's just too much work for something I don't care that much about". Low and behold, I started with Halloween. While I didn't do anything too fancy, I did buy festive kitchen towels and a white ghost/lanturn for the front porch. I also said that I wouldn't ever have to buy anything for Tristan for any of the holidays because "he wouldn't really know anyway"...well, I didn't follow that one either. For the fourth of July I bought him a red, white, and blue jumper (too cute)...Now for Halloween I wanted the perfect costume. Something cute and original and nothing that anyone else had. So I made him into a bowl of spaghetti and meatballs.....this was exhausting to do. It took a lot of hunting on the internet to find the right table mat, the right brown poms for the meatballs, the right bowl, and the right "spaghetti strings" from a mop. Most of the mops I searched had blue, yellow, or red threaded through it and I wanted all white. So after the long search for each piece of the costume, Nathan and I sewed and cut and sewed until everything was how I wanted it to look. The costume is perrrfeeect!!
Then comes Halloween...
Thanksgiving is around the corner and I've already purchased his next outfit "I'm stuffed" onesie with a bib that says "I'm thankful for Mommy and Daddy". :)
Then there's xmas...I still haven't decided if or how I'm going to do anything...but I did order the stockings from Pottery Barn and they've already arrived.
Funny how he's changed my perspective. I just want to introduce him to everything fun and interesting!!
