I know I still have summer updates to complete...and a marathon to report, etc. However, I think you will agree that these are worth sharing. I made most of the costumes. Elliot's was a thrift store find, but I added the red bow and the courage medal. I sewed little miss Priya's costume and left lost of room in the seams so she can be Dorothy again when she's 12 if she wishes;) Christian is wearing my dress and skirt and a lovely shade of green face paint. I was able to find the pinkest poofiest dress (did someone once wear this thing with a straight face?), but I made the crown and wand. After much running around town, I decided to make Silas's costume out of a chicken feed bag and an entire roll of shiny duct tape. An apparent success...and we'll do it all again Wednesday night (I think Christian will skip out).

Fantastic costumes, you guys look great together! Really enjoyed this post, and your others here. I realise you haven't updated here in a little while now, but perhaps I could persuade you to give your blog a second life over at We're a new social blogging site, and I know our community would love to read through your adventures here. Let me know what you think!

All the best,
