First glimpse at Larry Boy

Ta-Da! Here is your first glimpse at Larry Boy. I want to hear how fabulous you think it is (really, I need the encouragement. I spent an insane amount of time on the thing and I still have to put some finishing touches on it tomorrow). We went to Boo at the Zoo tonight with Caleb and Shelby. Caleb is the Grinch and Shelby is Cindy Lou Who.

Eric had a great time. It was FREEZING out there tonight! I may have to look for some green gloves...

The child got so much candy! I wish I hadn't already bought candy to hand out for Halloween. Here are some pictures of him checking out his loot. This was always my favorite part as a child.

"hey Tracy, Eric is a Larry-go-round!" haha that's my favorite quote from Veggie Tales. it's from the first Larry Boy episode.

Hi - I'm a friend of Becky's - just wanted to tell you the costume looks awesome!! I'm always impressed when people can actually make a costume that looks better than a purchased one (which is clearly something I CAN'T do ;) )

It looks amazing!! No wonder it took you so long to make it...talk about authentic! Way to go Mrs. Watkins! You rocked the sewing machine on that one! Can't wait to see it in person.

You are so full of CRAP! That's right, I said it - a naughty word - on YOUR blog. But, it's true, you are FULL of it! You were all "I've never sewn, I'm not sure how it will turn out, blah, blah, blah, blah!" CRAP, I say again. End Rant

WOW - Tracy, you are so gifted and amazing. It looks better than any ol' store bought costume one could ever purchase. YOU are AWESOME my friend and so is that sweet, sweet plunger earred boy of yours! Well done my friend.
