Guess Who (updated)

October 29, 2010

It was all shaping up to be a good day: Lily’s costume was made/assembled/gathered AND both she and I are happy about it.

Any guesses about what she will be? Here are some of her props:

Need a closer look at those boots?

I don’t want to brag (much), but I made those. Oh sure, we bought them, but I think you will agree that by glittering them, I made them. If you know me, you know that I am the last person you would expect to glitter anything, but I do enjoy making a little girl’s heart go pitter-pat pitter-pat. No, the costume does not call for sparkly boots, exactly, but I think I made the right call.

So, what literary figure accessories like this?

Lindsay was right, sort of. Before there was Lilly’s Big Day, there was

So Lindsay, if you would like a sparkly pair of cowboy boots for Christmas, just say the word.

Oh, and I got so excited telling you about the boots, I totally forgot the conclusion of my post. I had, of course, foreshadowed a hiccup in my introduction. It really was shaping up to be a great day. But then my car and my garage door collided.

    Need you even ask? Looks like it’s Lily’s Big Day.

      You know, with the purple purse.

        Right character, wrong book. Her school “encourages” the kids to dress up as characters from books. Which, of course, I think is a fine idea EXCEPT when your kid REALLY wants to be __________ (anything else) and you have to come up with 2 costumes: one for school and one for everything else. Lily will be Lilly for all Halloween festivities this year. I insist.

    Fabulous costume! Seriously, you glittered those boots? Impressive.

      It was my inaugural effort with Modge Podge. I know, right? They have still let me be Mormon all these years even though I had not previously used Modge Podge!

    you’re making a pair for yourself, right?

      No. I’ll make some for you, though, if you think Mohammad can handle them.

    Those boots are seriously impressive, Emily. I was going to guess Lilly. But only because Mom let slip she was making a Lily cape.

    for the next Super Saturday Enrichment-or what ever they call it now- you need to do a class on how to make these boots. My girls would LOVE them. I love them.

    Your car and your garage door…you may need to post the story on that. Was it you driving or your kids?

      Hee hee–I thought you might think that. If I HAD let Peter start the car (as he wanted to), this accident would not have happened because he would have opened the garage door a full two minutes before I actually started driving. As it was, I didn’t open the door until I got in the front seat, and then I immediately started driving–ahhhh! It was all my fault.

      I detest crafting–I will never attend a Super Saturday, trust me. Mix modge podge and glitter, equal parts, and paint on. This is three coats.

    Did you know that I am over Enrichment and just finished organizing and putting on our Super Saturday Craft Day (got the calling after using Modge Podge for the first time)? Please also know that I would have absolutely have made you come. Fair warning next time you’re contemplating a move to CA.

      OK, Kate–I would have come for you, but I would have brought my book and read rather than crafted. Hush your mouth about an Enrichment calling! I have been the Enrichment counselor in 5 RS presidencies since my mission, and that is 5 times too many.

    Very cool boots! Happy Halloween!
