P is a chicken this year and hubby and I are cheeeken faaamers. She's still in love with chickens after chicken sitting the neighbor's over the summer.
I did a Martha Stewart costume. It turned out great. She loved it and wanted to wear it all the time. I was blown away by her coordination when walking in her "chicken feet". They were hand-washing gloves stuffed and stretched over her shoes. My God the girl amazes me with her coordination constantly.
Tonight she ate candy. I don't like her to eat it but I'm also not such a nut that I wouldn't allow her to have any on this given night. She had about 6 pieces. Enough to give her a sugar rush that had her jumping over and onto the couch for a good hour.
I am in love with my child. Making her costume myself makes me feel so good and it's the realization of a dream I've had since I was a child.
