I hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween. Jetty wanted to be "Supremo Girl". Supremo Girl is a superhero that Jetty made up a few months ago. I made her costume about a month ago and she has been wearing most of it for this whole month. I am glad she likes it so much:) I made Ella a cute mermaid skirt but she isn't really fond of it so we dragged out a fairy outfit from the dress-up box she seems to like. It is amazing how they know what they want at such a young age:) The photos are of the girls at the pumpkin patch and our friends Halloween party last weekend. Jetty's pumpkin won for most humorous. She designed the face on paper and Daddy carved it with her help.
I am a little late with this post. We actually went to Sea World a couple of weeks ago. They do a Halloween thing all month where the kids dress-up and trick-or-treat and there are bands. We went to see these guys http://www.dirtysockfuntimeband.com/main.php but it was too loud for Jett. We still had a great time and always enjoy the animals. My husband also enjoys the Mermaids:) You could wait to get your picture taken with the mermaid and my girls wanted nothing to do with her but as you can tell from the photo, Doug was happy to get his photo taken.

The girls love helping me in the kitchen. The other day Jetty was helping me cut up cooked chicken with a small paring knife. I noticed Ella watching Jetty and then she ran to their kitchen play set and dug through the bins to find a play knife. She then came back over to me with the knife and signed "help". It was so cute and I was so proud of her communicating and not screaming. I promptly pulled a chair over for her to stand on and gave her a cutting board with some cooked chicken. She loved banging the chicken with the knife and then promptly gobbling it up. They are the cutest little chefs I have ever seen.
Sweet little Jetty was sick last week but thankfully is doing much better. She has been having recurrent high fevers and last week it lasted longer and she had stiff joints. So far all tests have been negative and hopefully the fevers won't continue coming in cycles. If the fevers come back in a few weeks we will be going to a specialist.

Jetty loves coming out to the studio with me. She has her own little area with her art supplies and usually does her own thing for a while and eventually ends up at my work table trying to help in her sweet little way. The other day when we were out in the studio Jetty came up with a great idea just in time for Halloween. She came to me with a drawing of a monster and she said "He is a good monster that scares away bad dreams." She then asked me if we could make him. How could I resist so I put down my work and we picked out fabric and ribbon and started to create. I showed her how to stuff the arms and legs and she did a great job. I have to say "Henry" turned out to be a cute little monster just right to scare away any bad dreams. I might just try and make some more for my shop. I just need to come up with a cute little poem or something to go with them.
