2 rag dolls and a sideshow attraction

I might have mentioned in a previous post that the three grandgirls came out for an overnighter last weekend and we worked on red yarn wigs for the twins' Halloween costumes of Raggedy Ann and how I didn't get a picture of them trying them on.

Well, it turns out I didn't get a picture but their younger sister did.

I think I also mentioned that I went in town last week so I could take the girls to the thrift center to find suitable dresses for their costumes but as it happened it didn't work out so I went by myself and picked out totally appropriate clothing except none of it fit...too small.

You think we are smaller than we actually are, Jade tells me.

So I busied myself making the aprons last Monday so Marc could deliver them when he went in to do a small job on Tuesday.

Got these pictures from their mother.

Jade had been more reluctant about the idea and decided not to wear her wig.

But Autumn totally rocks.

Robin, as always, walks her own path.


  1. such cuties! or lovely young ladies, should i say? :)

  2. Nicely done all around. This way we had all perspectives on character.

  3. You are such a good grandmother. Those aprons are wonderful and that wig is a work of art!
    Beautiful girls. Even with a mustache. Gorgeous.

  4. Totally awesome!!! Don't cha just love being a grandma!!!

  5. What fun for them to have such a creative grandmother.. and to inherit her genes. Speaking of which, I can see you looking out through Robin's eyes.

  6. They are so precious. They made me smile. Love that no matter what happened you guys made it work. Grandma and her sewing. That wig and the make up... amazing!

    And I absolutely love the black mustache and blonde wig ;-)

  7. Love the makeup jobs! And yes, those wigs rock. I'm impressed that you made the aprons! I don't think I ever wore a handmade Halloween costume.

  8. Awesome girls.

    I include you under that heading.


I opened my big mouth, now it's your turn.
