Cowboys, Vaqueros, and Indians

 Two story outhouse, so when the snow gets so deep, you don't have to shovel through to get in. 

 I'd just like to point out that I made those chaps. 

 A family of seven lived in the log cabin on the right till the 1970's and then they donated it.  Crazy.  And there's another cabin behind them that was donated with all the original furnishings.  That was pretty cool.  It was kind of trapper's/ranger's cabin and there was nothing feminine about it.  All tools and snowshoes and the like.
 I wish I had tried to take a photo of the kids with this in the background, but I was worried the sun would be too bright. 

And that was our Halloween pictures this year!  Yay!!  I did sew most of them.  Isabel's skirt was just kind of made up.  And I wanted to sew one of those cropped jackets for Sebas, but I just lack the energy and time right now.  House projects ate up all of it.  And I made Lando's chaps and Isabel's vest from left over longhorn cowhide when I reupholstered my friend's chairs for her last fall.  I felt bad for Elena because I wanted to make her a split riding skirt outfit too, but then resizing the very detailed pattern daunted me, and  I made her wear her old Sacajawea costume.  Someday, I'm going to make that pattern though--I love it!
Anyway, I was so happy with how everything turned out, although I still miss Joann's because I'm missing buttons from Sebas's pants and Lando's shirt and now after the photos from Jubal's shirt, and I can't just run and get some more.  So sad.  Although my mom is still enabling my pattern addiction--I had her run to Joann's when the patterns were on sale for $1 or $1.99 and pick me up a whole bunch!!!  I'm so excited to get them!  My kids were talking about Halloween next year and saying things like Pokeman and ninjas, and I had to remind them that I only sew costumes that I really like.  Ha. Ha.  (Evil laugh).  But maybe my years of themed Halloweens are coming to an end...sniff.
