This Halloween I really wanted to dress up, and since we’re married, I wanted to do a cute couple costume. We thought and thought and it was actually Kenny who decided we should go as Eugene Fitzherbert (Flynn Rider) and Rapunzel from “Tangled”. I thought that would be cute, but definitely the hard part would be the hair. Of course all I had to do was Google “do it yourself Rapunzel hair” and a ton of results came up. I love Google and creative people that blog about the things they make. Here’s the finished product!
In total it took me about 2 hours, and two skeins of yarn (that’s what they’re called right?). I finished off decorating it with flowers and ribbons. Thanks Mom for helping me figure out how to make the hair.
The Fernsten’s have a great tradition of carving pumpkins. We were there as all the trick-or-treaters said “Oooh, cool pumpkins!” I always like making characters that little kids recognize. I’ve done a penguin, Nemo, and this year I did Kermit the frog, in honor of his new movie coming out on November 23, 2011. Yes, we are excited!
As always, it was a fun Halloween, and I ate too much candy. Now we get to get ready for Thanksgiving and CHRISTMAS!
