You will be reading this in the morning….or at least in the daylight…but I am writing this at night.
It’s dark and everyone at my house is in bed and asleep. And me, I’m so tired.
It’s been a long few weeks around here. I won’t bore you with the details of funerals, home remodel disasters, or my dogs anxiety issues but I will say that I really am tired. To the core.
So tonight as I sit here thinking about Halloween and the upcoming costume making marathon that will begin tomorrow morning I’m wondering is it worth it?
And then I run across these photos as I’m brainstorming how to make the requested costumes.
These pictures were taken 4 years ago…..
When our now “tweens” were oh so much smaller….
…and I remembered the fun we all the day “Carl and Ellie Fredrickson” visited the “Up” house.
It was fun and silly and magical. And I don’t think any of us will ever forget it.
These kids, these crazy fabulous kids, are only ours for such a short time….how many of these holidays do we get with them? Certainly not enough. And so for the next 48 I will sew like the wind to create 3 very different costumes for 3 very different children and be thankful for the chance I have to do it because magic doesn’t last forever.
If only it could.
