thankful month: day 18

Two things I am grateful for today:
1. The Care Bear Halloween costumes I made this year. I love seeing what others have been able to create for themselves or their children, too! The three-year-old's idea originally was for us to be Goldilocks and the three bears. When searching for ideas on making bear costumes, she really liked the pictures of Care Bears, so the plan changed. L was the pink Secret Bear and Shboogoo was the purple Best Friend Bear.  I hadn't tried sewing pieces together like this before (I used both fabric and ribbons) and it was fun. I bought the clothing and had everything else already. I made the tummy symbols and ears removable so they can wear the clothes as regular clothes. The only part I didn't finish until after Halloween was the ears.  (By the way, I just dressed up as a Utes fan for our trunk-or-treat on the 29th of October, didn't wear a costume either of the next two nights, and my husband didn't want to wear a costume at all.) 

2. I am very thankful for warmth. This includes the sun, my home (I can't imagine being homeless!), the company that heats it, the money to pay that company, lots of blankets, a fireplace, and my husband's feet! (They tend to get hot, and mine get cold.)
