Halloween Countdown: Four costumes in Four Days...can she do it?


The Halloween countdown has begun! This years theme: The Flintstones. 
My current to-do list includes:  
  • Fred (tunic and tie and triangles) DONE
  • Barny (tunic, need to find a black shoelace for the tie) DONE
  • Betty (dress and choker)
  • Wilma's mother - time depending  DONE
  • Bam Bam DONE!!!  
  • Download Flintstone Theme song  DONE
Being an avid sewer leaves me wide open to people telling me their desire to participate with only two weeks to the day. We do actually try to start this in May every year, but it never really works out. I really did not feel like doing much more this weekend that sitting on the couch watching movies,and crocheting a scarf, which I don't mind saying I did. When it came to Halloween costumes I only managed to get to Walmarts for a brown and orange sheet, and cut out Fred's tie (which is in pieces across the cutting table). 
I don't doubt it will all get done, but I am not going to lie, when I say, the fun has gone out of it a little, of course I do get to put it on my review at work as student retention, so at least that's something, and on Friday it will all be worth it. 
As for my plans on Halloween Sunday itself: I'm making sugar cookies, putting on my devil horns, wrapping up with a blanket and a cup of cocoa, and watching a horror movie marathon.
