* Yes, everyone was dressed as muppets, because we were going to throw a muppet-themed Halloween party, but it was thwarted by the bugs. Chris and I were going to go as Gonzo and Camilla, also thwarted by the bugs. 
** I am whipping through all unfinished projects. The Habu scarf is done and I am determined to have a pair of socks by the end of this week. 


  1. Looks like an awesome time! Have fun finishing things up :)

  2. Amazing! Both the costume AND the fact that you only needed an umbrella to put that together.

  3. We have a chimney brush that Chris needed!

  4. You stole my costume! I wanted to be Mary Poppins (and make Jeff dress as Burt) sooo badly. Did I tell you that?.....Except you are awesome because you had everything for the costume. I, however, only had the umbrella. Womp.

    BUT, you guys looked cute! Good work. :)
