Operation ribbit

Today's mission (should I choose to accept it): Cut out all the pattern pieces for Jimmy's Halloween costume.

Mission background: At the beginning of October, I asked Jimmy what he wanted to be for Halloween.

"A black kitty," he answered. Relieved that he wanted to wear last year's costume, I started to look forward to a relaxed and fun Halloween.

Then last week, he announced, "Mom, I'm going to be a frog for Halloween."

Oh, really? Great. So on Friday afternoon when we drove down to Yakima for our monthly Costco run, we stopped at Jo-Ann Fabrics and I bought three and a half yards of bright green fleece (because let me tell you, Halloween gets cold here!) along with the necessary notions.

If I pace myself, hopefully I can avoid the last minute sewing frenzy of the previous year's costume construction.
