|Early trick-or-treating at the mall.|
And knowing that little brother still has more animal sounds in his vocabulary than real words, we knew we'd have to make him a farm animal to go with big brother. I gave Elijah a few choices, and even though I think he is the best, most authentic "oinker" in the world, he went with "moo". I found this tutorial online and couldn't have been happier with the results. I ordered the black sweat suit from Carters, and sewed everything together in an afternoon (though it is hard to machine sew in the small areas of the legs and arms). I used up some felt and googly eyes I already had, found a huge pink button in my button jar, and pinned on a tail we picked up at Joanns. I added some tie-on hooves out of black felt as well, and tagged him with a yellow ear-tag (#2), but that didn't make the pictures.
