    Here they are...our Victorian gals.


    Alicia (the short one in purple took 3rd place at the Legion's Costume Contest this year. Jasmine didn't place, but was very happy for her little sister!)

    The fans Auntie Elle sent the girls from Spain went perfectly with the costumes....Thanks Auntie Elle!

    Thanks everyone. and yeppers pal I made them.

    Auntie Terri...Jasmine said "thanks for my kangaroo!! He's awesome."
    I just haven't gotten to telling you yet...sorry.

    I'll pass on the hugs in the morning...they were pretty worn out when we got home from trick or treating. They made a BIG haul o'candy.
    We had soooo much fun! The sun was shining for the parade...the party at the Legion was awesome, with really good cookies to boot!

    Then walking/driving around town to trick or treat. It was a blast, and the girls fell asleep VERY quickly tonight LOL.


    **side bar...odd this posted above pals and terri's posts for some reason LOL must be goblins!

    They look just beautiful! How fun for them! I never had great costumes like that when I was a kid. :shock: I can't believe Jasmine didn't place, too, as her dress is gorgeous and I love her hair. She looks like a true gentle Lady. They don't know me, but give them hugs from a distant Auntie from Colorado.

    Thanks everyone...the girls and I had a ball yesterday, and I so love making costumes. We've decided next year they're going to pick completely different costumes. They've decided that the judges "just don't let the same costume win more than once" LOL Gotta love logic from kids huh.


    Esqmommy, Yep, we're not looking forward to those lines around the block LOL. Daddy has back-up...Uncles, older male cousins, Godfather, co-workers. Lots of volunteers to help Daddy keep the boys under control LOLOL.

    Karla...wish I had you here with the camera!!!!

    Wow You did a great job on those costumes lisa! They really look happy with them too.
    Both of your little ones are beautiful. But have you ever seen the resemblance to the youngest to Natalie Wood?? The same eyes and smile she had.

    I'm trying to see the resemblance really I am LOL Most often folks tell me she looks like a short Hailey Berry, I don't see that one either LOL. She really looks most like my mom when she was a wee person. Alicia says, "yep, I'm the darker version of Gramma" hehehe.


    Thanks everyone, we sure had a lot of fun. They've started making plans for next year already. I think one said something about being a Native American. That will be fun...for I have buckskin (elk to be precise) around here someplace. :thumbup:
