Peek of the Week, October 21, 2011

Take a Peek: 
 Spoooooky, right?
Know what's spooky? Amos and Eli and their mirror image posing. Sup wit' dat?

Know what's spookier? They've done it before:

I digress.

What's Peek of the Week, you ask? It's our Friday feature and it's all about you! I want to hear (and share with my readers) what wowed you this week. It could be a cool finished project, a work in progress, a personal accomplishment, a cute kid moment, or something that surprised you.

If we could peek into your week - what would you want to show us?

Each week I'll share my own Peek of the Week to get the ball rolling, and invite you to link to your blog post about your Peek of the Week. I know y'all are up to cool stuff - we wanna see it!

So today...a Halloween Peek:

 Ok I confess. The reason they always have their hands like that is because 
I bribed every shot out of them with candy corn.

Amos' Very Hungry Caterpillar costume was the serendipitous discovery of the century. You see, that book has gotten him off the ledge at school at least 100 times. He had a rough couple of weeks starting school. He cried every day and the only thing that would calm him was when the assistant read him The Very Hungry Caterpillar. So when I came upon this costume at Pottery Barn Kids a few weeks ago I snatched it up and bought it as quickly as possible (along with a few other items). My total was pretty steep but I didn't worry about it. 

Anyhoo, I brought it home and gave it to him and he was beside himself with glee. That first day he wore it for over 30 hours. To sleep. To target. Wouldn't take it off. Only after a few days did I look at the receipt and saw what I paid for it. Probably thrice what I would have thought (or would have paid for a costume on purpose). Thank goodness I didn't look at the price tag before buying it because for the joy it brought him, it was totally worth it. 

Eli's astronaut costume was a super sweet find. He's been big into space since the shuttle launch and is so excited to be spacey for Halloween. My sister found the awesome personalized astronaut helmet in this etsy shop. Thanks Auntie Kel!

This is Hazel's 2nd Halloween ensem. Her 1st look, the wee mermaid, was peeked last week and is worth another look. There's one more in the works which I believe she'll actually wear to all her Halloween engagements. I smell next week's Peek of the Week!

Happy Halloween!
