Long, long ago, when Master’s daughter was a young, married, stay-at-home, mother of just one (this was before she became a Master’s teacher of children, mother of one bear like husband, one military son, two electrician sons), she had time. She had time to decorate cakes, houses, make gravy starter (funny Thanksgiving story) and to sew. She sewed Halloween costumes and, given the week is Halloween week (Notice how it is no longer a one day holiday? ), I thought you might to see some of her handiwork.
To explain this picture: There is a pumpkin to collect candy, a child barely bigger than the pumpkin who is dressed in a bear costume and the light brown/tan furry thing is actually a dog.
This was my dog, then my mom’s dog (we do not actually mean to trade dogs in this family, but it does happen as you move and cannot take the dog with.) This one was a little thing and really ornary with buggy eyes. She was also, agreed upon by most of the family, to be a rather ugly dog. My mom adored her
Here, child sitting on the porch, has gotten bored by the whole costume, pose, dog thing and fallen asleep. Whereas dog is thinking, “Why the heck is that kid sleeping on MY porch in a fur suit? Don’t they know that is my job?”
