A little bit of this and that!!

Here is Asha in her actual Halloween costume. She was supposed to be a fairy princess but wouldn't keep the crown on and once she got ahold of her first sucker she wouldn't hold the wand either so everyone kept calling her a butterfly so I guess that's what she was. Like the antenna's? I thought it was a cute idea. She unfortunately got a cold that day so didn't have too much fun but was happy to have her blue sucker through the whole thing.

The funniest thing though was that instead of saying trick or treat at the door she would walk up and say "eat". It's her favorite word and most people thought she was saying treat. Only I really knew what she was saying and would just laugh to myself.

Here's my first attempt at corn rows with beads. It was pretty interesting to do and took about an hour and a half of Blues Clues to get it done. It only lasted a few days and then she started pulling them out. When I first put them in she kept walking around shaking her head no because she liked the sound and the feel of them. It was funny to watch!! I don't think I did them completely right since they came out so easy but I'm sure the more I do it the better I will become at it.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to make the last bead stay in and how to tuck the hair under the rest of the beads? Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated!!
