Red capes and blue caps

I am that mom.

The one who stays up til midnight hand stitching a halloween costume.

This is fun stuff, people. Fun stuff.

Now if I could just get my grubby paws on a sewing machine for next year(G'ma Dorothy, let's visit you soon!)...

For now, feast your eyes on Kansas' most adorable Nacho Libre (go see the movie if you've not already). Wilder dressed up as Nacho last weekend to attend the children's theater play. Most people didn't know who he was, so, here's a reference photo:
And my rendition (crooked stitching and cutting, but, that's ok!):
If we do anything else for Halloween, you'll get double the photos!

Lastly, here are the cardinal rules of Trick-or-Treating, presented to you by the local children's theater, in case you forgot:

Precious Father, why have you given me this desire to wrestle
and then made me such a stinky warrior?

way to go, mindy! that's an awesome costume! Looks better than anything you'd buy at a store. And even though Wilder (probably) had no idea what he really was, it looks like he loved that costume.
Will you make my costume?? :)

oh my. that is a hilarious costume idea!

it's funny that cell phones are added to the list. not too long ago it wasn't even a thought. if you were stuck somewhere or scared, you just screamed until someone came.
