Halloween and Crafts

Dear Liza,

Jasper’s Goal

Today was predicted to be stormy and wet, with possible thunder storms. And that’s okay, because I was inside helping make Jasper’s Halloween costume.

There were several detours along the way, however. Grandpa Nelson wanted to stop by Fleur de Lis Bakery for brunch. Yummy pastries and coffee? Not a problem!

A Yummy Distraction

Another errand took us to Home Depot, where we saw Halloween AND Christmas decorations! Holiday overlap…weird….

 

Finally, we got home and I got started. Each piece only took a little while….the light grey scarf and the dark grey bandanna needed an edge,  the arm wraps needed to be torn and safety pins located to attach them.

Auntie Bridgett also worked her magic on the piece. Jasper is being a Stealth Armor ninja, and Auntie Katie provided the dark grey body suit.

I also made cookies to decorate with Katie and the Cousins. I will try and remember to take pictures of the costumes and the cookies to show you!

I think this was a productive day. Happy Halloween!

 

 

Love,

Grandma Judy
