Oh, it's a Jolly Holiday with Jake and Sarah...

For Halloween this year I had cowboy costumes (matching chaps and vests!) that my mom made for my little brothers ready to go for Jake and Sarah. I was going to put Sarah in a pink hat and boots and we were set for a little cowboy and cowgirl. Then, the kids got really into Mary Poppins-- particularly Sarah girl... She is a girl after my own heart and she adores Mary. She put on a "pretty dress" and picks it up around her hips just like Mary and dances all around the family room to "Steppin' Time", "Jolly Holiday", and all the rest. It's adorable.
So, obviously I had to make these costumes for the kiddos. I got the tutorials off Pinterest and the rest is history. They were a pain... especially Jake's Bert jacket. But they were totally worth it. The kids loved it and so did I.

This one is my absolute favorite.

Sarah wouldn't stop dancing... and poor Jakey broke his cane during the shoot.

This was right after he broke his cane... poor little guy was trying to be brave and smile after I completely lost my cool.

 These last two are right before trick-or-treating in the neighborhood. (I LOVE my neighborhood!)

...With a sort-of-taped-together cane for Bert.

Happy Halloween!
