So proud!

I remember when I was little, my mom would make all my Halloween costumes. I can tell you just about every one of them; bag of jelly beans, bride, black cat, pumpkin...just to name a few. I'm sure I took her time and effort for granted, and for that, I am sorry. You see, I wanted to make Anna Kate's costume this year. When I told her I was making it, she rolled her eyes and sighed. I recognized her thoughts immediately, because they were the same as mine; "Great! It's going to look homemade."

Well, I finished the costume this week and let her try it on last night. I cannot begin to tell you how excited she was. To quote her, "Momma, it's GORGEOUS!!!" Needless to say, that made my YEAR! :c)

She's going to be a cowgirl, complete with black cowgirl boots, 2 braids with black ribbon tied at the bottom and a hat (if I can find one I like, which I haven't yet.) You will have to excuse the poor photo quality - I used my Blackberry camera. She is going to be one 'perty' cowgirl!!!

So mom, for all those costumes you painstakingly worked on for me, THANK YOU!!! I'm excited that I can now do the same for my daughter!
