Skeletal Sunday

Well last night I sat up and drew bones...
ribcages, scapula's, tibia and fibula, radius and ulna.. Pelvis bones (Male of course)...
I think I will be able to contribute towards the next Grays anatomy manual.... in fact I swear I dreamt about bones when I finally dragged myself to bed at about 3am.

Why you ask??

It's the schools "Book Character Day"...
and Asher is going as the Silly Skeleton.  Now Mummy was a bit too scroogy to go and buy a whole heap of things since she just bought a whole Army outfit last week for the schools trench day experience, so I drew the skeleton, on an old white sheet, (using Vivid permanent marker)... and then just crudely tacked it onto Ashers black long sleeved Tshirt and old trackies.  I will finish off on Wednesday by doing a skull face in facepaint at school. :)  DISCLAIMER:  I absolutely sucked at sewing/knitting etc at school otherwise I could have done something amazing!!  It's times like this that I wish I had the sewing skills of Kristy Drake! ;)

Ahhh don't you love it when you have to help your kids with their school stuff? hahaa.
I will post a pic of Asher dressed up on Wednesday later in the week.

What costumes etc have you had to make last minute for your littlies??  Would love to see some pics.
