Nate chose our Halloween costumes this year. Unfortunately the wig made him look more Clinton instead of McCain. Our buttons say McCain Palin 1908. Piper was the Drill Baby. Nate won "costume most unlike himself" at his work party. He lost "scarriest costume" to Joe Plumber because the only thing scarier than McCain Palin is someone who believes in McCain Palin. (His company is pretty liberal.)
Kadon drew an example of the face for Nate. He was right there with the paper to make sure Nate cut it just the same. Kyrie was trying to help out too. She was lucky she didn't lose any fingers 'cause she kept sticking them in Nate's way.

I found these frog prints at a garage sale last year and decided to use them as the muse for this bathroom. I sewed new hooded towels for the kids. Kadon gets blue, Kyrie gets yellow, and Piper gets green.
Walmart had a super cute frog shower curtain. The vanity cabinet used to be wood, so I painted it white to give it a fresh, clean look.
This vanity doesn't have any drawers. Not very ideal for a kid's bath. Luckily IKEA is there for such occasions. Now we have hanging buckets for toothbrushes, toothpaste, and combs and brushes. The shelf is great for gel and Kyrie's clips and bows are in the boxes.
Stay tuned for Kadon's new room.
Piper is wearing a blessing outfit crocheted by Nate's Grandma Theall. It was beautiful.
Grandma and Grandpa Packard came in for the day.

Unfortunately, she hasn't worn the dress since, and she's broken all her jewelry.
Kadon is Batman, and Kyrie didn't think a princess was scary enough to fight Batman, so she resurrected her ladybug costume from last year. Since Kyrie is terrified of all bugs, a ladybug is the perfect arch nemesis for Batman in her mind.
I'll try to get some shots of their epic battles to post.
