Falling for Fall!

Fall is here and I couldn't be happier!  This is it, my most favorite season of all.  I am in my element!  Hello scarfs, berets, chunky sweaters, and boots!  We decided to take fall in and visit our local lake with some friends.  It was the most beautiful day.  Sometimes I curse living up in the mountains but it is these peaceful moments when I just can't help but feel lucky. 


Well we were quite disappointed when we asked our daughter what she wanted to be for Halloween this year.  She decided to be Elsa, oh you know the one from that movie might have seen it.  Of course you have and if you haven't you have been driven mad by all of the commercials, toys, and even songs on the radio.  It was a cute movie but come on people!  I hate to say it but we even tried persuading her to be something else because well her whole kindergarten class is going to be Elsa!  Well after we realized that no amount of persuading could ever change her mind we just accepted it and adapted the mentality that if shes going to be Elsa shes going to be the best Elsa out there!  The first thing that we purchased was this wig, it is actually a Rapunzel wig but I found it for a bargain on Zulily.  You can also find it here.  Now I was a little disappointed after receiving it in the mail because the bangs were nothing like picture...not even close.  They looked like horse bangs!  So I grabbed my handy glue gun, tucked the bangs under, and glued them into place.

It turned out pretty good.  Anyway, she absolutely loves her hair.  I have started sewing her dress and have decided to sew it in two parts a skirt and a top.  The skirt is complete so now I'm just trying to figure out how to sew the top.  I will post the finished results as soon as well, they are finished.

My little weirdo!
