halloween! this year i spent it as a koala with a brown bear and a fig frog. we ate candy, and watched movies and waited for tricker treaters.( we got 2!)

being a frog made fig very tired.

we also went to a pumpkin farm with a corn maze, where it was very sunny in my eyes.
it was my first time in a corn maze ever, and i think we did pretty well. no panicking or giving up hope!

it was a beary good halloween.

here is my newest sweater. it's been so rainy and humidy, it's been hard to get out to take some pictures. tonight it's supposed to cool off again. good idea.
lately i have been watching some octobery movies i usually watch with my mom and sister. dial m for murder,psycho, arsenic and old lace, and some rita hayworth movies. and working on halloween costumes. including one for fig, which i hope she will wear.and love. but more likely rip off and eat.

fall time means slipper time!
i made these from my own pattern, but there are some like them here with a tutorial.
last night i wore my slippers, and drank apple cider, and all was good and right.

and fall time also means finally being able to go to the park again! after the summer, fig pretty much doesnt know what outside is. but she likes it so far. maybe its being able to run full speed without slamming into the kitchen cupboards every time.
