Happy Halloween!


Penelope the Clown

Happy Halloween, Everybody! Last night we celebrated with the family with Navajo tacos, salad, cookies and lots and lots of Nutella. We had a great time hanging out with family. I am so excited to share Penelope’s costume with you guys!


I have this weird relationship to costumes. I never sew them and I don’t like to go out and buy them. Lame, right? My mother came to the rescue this year with this sweet clown costume. She made it by hand, no pattern, for me or my older sister when we were little bitties. NO PATTERN. Isn’t my mom incredible?

Penelope sure had a great time playing with her cousin. He was a super cute train conductor. What a good old fashioned costume. Love it. Hope Y’all have  a fantastic Halloween & daylight savings weekend!
