Then it hit me that my kids were finished with their homework and since I was slaving away for them they could do these other things. Duh! So they did and I finished up their costumes.
Sewing for me is kind of like electronics; it's a crap shoot. I sort of understand how things are constructed and I can visualize it in my head, but how it turns out is anyone's guess.
This time luck was on my side and everything turned out fine the first time. I was finished by 8:30pm.
Today my daughters and I will go check out the venue. The kids can run around a bit and I'll scope out my choices of seating if indeed I do not have to be with the kids every minute. They have no information about rules for minors.
But the costumes are ready to go and that's really all that matters.
