Illness.

 Yes, illness.  That has been the theme of our house for the last week or so.  At the beginning of the week, Charlotte had fever.  At the end of the week, Alexander had an upset tummy and fever, and at the very end of the week, I had fever and aches.  I think we're all on the upswing now and are ready to greet this new week with  healthy smiles.  We're never this sick this much so it's taken a lot out of me!  Say a little prayer for Peter that he stays well since work and school are so busy right now; he can't afford to be sick.  I did want to jump on here and show you a few photos of what we've been up to.
Even when sick, Charlotte managed a smile.  I think she knew that she was living on the edge!
Alexander and I took a trip to Gentry's Pumpkin Farm one afternoon while Charlotte was sick and taking a nap.  We had a great time!

A pair of pajama pants for Charlotte to match Alexander's
 Below is a skirt that I made using Moda fat quarters purchased at the Village Mercantile with an old high school buddy, Jenny Allen Wampler.  She made me spend lots and lots of money!  Can't wait to finish up another outfit using the snowman fabric that we found!  Quick note on this skirt, I used my new serger to roll hem the bottom of the skirt and I also used it to do the gathering.  I think it turned out pretty well, just have to get it on the girl to check it out!
Yay for cute skirts!
And, because I know that you're just itching for some cute Halloween...here's the dress that I made for Charlotte's Candy Corn Costume (say that 5 times in a row)!  I hope to make some matching barrettes but that may fall by the wayside if I can't get the boys and my costumes finished. I'm not sure the photo does this justice but I promise you, it's cute.  It's even lined so the felt won't be scratchy!
