Sean felt like making costumes this year. So K~ became a gypsy and Dawnetta revealed her inner pirate (arrr!). A~ and R~ went as demigods from Camp Halfblood (see Percy Jackson), but Sean didn’t make their costumes.
R~ wanted a nice dress to wear to the New Year’s dance, so we went pattern shopping. When she couldn’t find one particular pattern she liked, she commented that she liked the top from one and the skirt from another. So we combined the two, and “Ta-da!”
