Today we had a special treat. The school where Thomas directs choir and speaks in chapel has an annual Harvest Festival. This event is probably similar to some Halloween festivities, in that anyone who wants to can dress up in the designated theme. The Harvest Festival is in actuality a fundraiser for the school, just in case you were wondering. There are games that you buy tickets to play, food, and a costume contest. This year's theme was The Movies. You could come dressed as any character in a movie, though they did request no scary costumes.
Having been the wonderful recipient of several incredibly-made costumes by my magnificent mother, I really wanted to make Isaiah a costume (this also gave me a chance to see something accomplished!). I decided that Peter Pan would be a nice easy costume to make (and here is a special shout-out to my sister-in-law, Sandra who gave me the simple pattern book that I used as a basis for the costume. Thank you Sandra!!!!!).
Here's the first try-on session. Isn't he a cute Peter Pan! Unfortunately, we got stuck in traffic on our way to the school, so he wasn't able to be in the costume judging, but that's ok. He was still stinkin' cute, and we had fun!

My friend Deanna was Tinkerbell. I don't know why we have a serious Peter Pan in this shot.
Isaiah and Lydia, naturally! Lydia was an adorable fairy all in pink!
