Kathleen's creations

Kathleen has gotten creative again. She figured she should dress her doll in a Halloween costume this year. (Knowng how much she LOVES treats, I'm wondering if she thought she'd rake in more candy by taking her doll trick-or-treating with her.)Presenting...
A handmade luau hula outfit.Skirt made from brown yarn; lei made with hand-cut felt flowers and thread. Oh yes, and the tube top made from (a skimpy piece of) wide ribbon.

Kathleen also likes to dress in period fashions--especially of people who she thinks did cool things. Today, as she read this book......I'm sure her gears were turning.

Because after she finished the book, she scurried around and came up looking like this.

What great costumes—both the doll's and her own!

Children can be very creative when it comes to finding ways to get extra treats. Our church usually has a Trunk-or-Treat on Halloween where the children go from vehicle to vehicle collecting candy. Before they are given their candy, however, they have to say a Bible verse. Once, when my oldest son was about 5 or 6 years old he came up with the perfect verse to use: "God love a cheerful giver." You can rest assured he came home with a bag full of goodies that year!
