Halloween 2011

>> Wednesday, November 9, 2011

I had grand plans for Halloween this year.  I dreamed of making Toy Story costumes for the whole family.  My dream did not become a reality, but finishing 2 out of 4 is not bad.

Trent of course was Buzz Lightyear.  That costume was very involved with many little pattern pieces to cut out.  At least I got to put my silhouette to good use.

The costume was constructed from a vintage simplicity pattern circa 2000.

For Carter's costume I used the pattern from Trent's first Halloween where he was a lion and adapted it to make an alien.

Of course he did not want to wear the hat.  Oh well, I will remember that for next year.

Tim and I even carved some pumpkins.

Trent had fun trick or treating.  We just went around our own block.

And even Carter got some candy.

I think Trent's favorite part of the evening was handing out candy at our house.  At first he was afraid of some of the scarier costumes but eventually he warmed up and answered every door bell ring.  

Overall it was a great night.  We handed out four Costco sized bags of candy by 8:00 and then turned off our light.  Next year I will miss trick or treating in this neighborhood.

The bathroom countertops are in!!

For the bathrooms we decided to go with caesar stone because of its modern look and easy maintenance.  The best part is you never have to seal it.

Here is the master, it is called misty carrera

And here is the boys bath

I really love the look of the caesar stone it is very clean and modern.

The granite for the kitchen is supposed to be installed today but as of 12:30 the installer still had not shown up.  I am keeping my fingers crossed that it happens today.

If all stays on schedule we want to move in this weekend, but the forecast is for rain all weekend so we will see what happens.

It's been a while since I posted and the finish line is looking closer.

Tim has started work on the flooring.

Cabinets have been installed.

Currently our bathroom countertops are being installed and the granite guy is coming today to make the template for the kitchen.

Next up is plumbing on Friday and over the weekend Tim will be installing the flooring in the kitchen.
