The kids' costumes came to day. They picked them last week. It was a perfect time for a dress rehearsal. They worn them for most of the evening. I got to read Elmo a book tonight before bed. If you ever get the chance to read Elmo a book I highly advise it. Growing up we always made our own costumes, usually with a little scorn for the "store bought" ones. Now, as a mother I look back at all the work my mom did, modifying our pajamas into Care Bears, assembling Holly Hobby, and building California Raisins with trash bags and balloons. For some reason I always thought that I was the one building the costume (boy was I wrong). Amazon, you have saved me a lot of work (cost me a bit of money)! Mom you were amazing.
