The Last Flowers

I meant to post these last week.  I honestly barely remember last week.  I feel like I got nothing done and simultaneously was ridiculously busy.  Okay three sentences in and I'm remembering why these haven't been posted.  I am constantly interrupted by the pets.  I love them all so much, but it's a struggle sometimes.  I got interrupted again...  😒  Okay, as I was saying, these flowers were from my mother.  They lasted WAY longer than I thought they would, and it was SO nice to have them when the ground was covered in snow.  But just like the snow that melts, these flowers wilted and were thrown out.  

I had a hard time narrowing down the pictures of Laurelin because she looked so happy and cute as she sat and ate her spinach.  😍

Tarmund apparently doesn't like spinach or flowers.  So, these were the best pictures I got.  😂

As much as I loved doing the Halloween costumes again this year, I am glad to be back to these simple pictures that don't require much - if any - setting up.  Laurelin was enjoying running around this chair and climbing up and down the arms trying to see if she could get access to anything around the chair.

Tarmund also enjoyed running around this chair, but he is so small and couldn't reach high enough to climb up the arms.  Watching his efforts was quite adorable though!

Luna Lovegood

Happy Halloween!  Laurelin thought that the perfect way to end this series would be to do a Luna Lovegood costume.  I think Laurelin looks great.  😊 

I hope you all enjoyed the costumes this year!  Truthfully, I don't anticipate Laurelin living long enough to do more costumes next year.  She is approximately a year old now, so if she is alive next Halloween, she'll be quite the old lady.  If I am able to do this again in the future, regardless if it is with Laurelin or another hamster, I'd love to hear your ideas of what costumes you would like to see!  Also, in case you didn't know this has been a bit of a tradition for me, I have 3 ebooks that are all about the costumes that my first hamster, Tarcil, wore.  You can get them all on Amazon!

Captain Marvel

I really like that there are strong female superheros that Laurelin could dress up as.  Doesn't she look great as Captain Marvel?  Laurelin didn't seem to be too serious about this role though as you can tell by the last picture where she stuck her tongue out.  😂

Wonder Woman

I knew right away that I wanted to do a Wonder Woman costume with Laurelin.  Some days I feel like I am wonder woman with all that I am able to accomplish, but most days, I get frustrated with myself for not doing more.  I definitely struggle when I don't get enough sleep, and these past two months with Arien have made me struggle to get the rest I need.  But each day brings a new chance to do better than the previous day, and that thought has given me the encouragement I need to give myself grace on the days when I am struggling.  😊  And for those of you who might be wondering if today is one of those awesome days for me, I can assure you that the fact I haven't showered yet should be all the info you need to figure that one out.  😂

Princess Leia

As you can tell, I had trouble picking my favorite picture to use.  Laurelin really owned this Princess Leia costume.  I am so glad I was able to do this costume.  I am very excited for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker to come out.  It won't be the same without Carrie Fisher, but I am very hopeful that they will do a great job of ending this great saga.

My husband and I bought a switch specifically to play Zelda Breath of the Wild.  We were not disappointed!  It is such a great game!  So I knew I wanted to have Laurelin be Zelda.  The dress I was basing this costume off of is much more complicated, but I figured I could still get the point across even by keeping it simple.  Having her pose in front of Hyrule Castle probably helps.  😊
