Halloween 2018- Voltron and a Fox
Max was very into Voltron when he was 2-3, which is funny because now he thinks it's too scary and won't watch it!
Andrew took the lead on this one and constructed his costume from cardboard and tape. Here is a fitting.
Andrew spent at least a week cutting and building it, and then I helped paint it. I enjoy painting, so that was fun. We got really detailed with the black sharpies.
Only a year and a half ago, but they look so small ❤️

Vintage Toy Box Refinish
I bought this toy box at an estate sale in 2014 when pregnant with Max. https://mollysews.blogspot.com/2014/10/estate-sale-loot-sewing-and-baby.html?m=1
It then sat on the back porch/in that basement for years waiting to be repainted.
Claire turned two in September and now I have energy again and am feeling like a real person, or as much as you can when working with two little kids. 😂
I seem to only get stuff done during school breaks, and following that pattern this was painter over Thanksgiving break.
Only took me five years to get that off of my to-do list! 😂

A Parrot and his Egg- Halloween 2017
I was on maternity leave for Halloween and Claire is the easiest baby ever, so I was able to sew for a week straight and make Max an AMAZING bird costume! I asked him at least twenty times and he consistently said he wanted to be a bird- which is super impressive for a 2.5 yr old. Then, after I finished the costume and the day before Halloween, he said he wanted to be a dragon. LOL.
Claire was an egg. Makes them theme costumes and super easy!

Christmas Sewing 2017
Well, I am on summer break and have a tiny bit o time to blog. I can't believe I haven't even written anything for 2018. Wow. It's almost like having two little kids and working full-time takes up most of my energy and time. 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂
I have sewn stuff though!
For Xmas, I made Max and Claire matching stocking to match the ones I made for Andrew, T-Rex and myself a few years ago. I had managed to find another piece of that vintage fabric on Etsy, which was amazingly lucky.
I also made these little hats with leftover fabric. I had also made Claire two Xmas themed knock-off Zipadee Zip sleep suit for Cliare, but apparently didn't take a single picture of her in it in the .005 seconds before she outgrew it!

My best make of the year: Baby Claire!!
Max and I had a fun summer together doing toddler yoga, taking a music class and swimming at the pool almost every day. It was our special time before he became a big brother!
Baby Claire was born in September and she is such a sweet, easy baby! We all love her so much and Max is being an excellent big brother giving her so many hugs and kisses, bringing her toys and helpfully yelling "baby's crying".
|They are almost exactly 2.5 years apart|
