Do Dinosaurs Wear Pajamas?

These monster Tyrannosauruses do!!!!                                           
Our Big Little Man, who is 3 years old, told his mom and dad he wants to be a monster T-Rex in bed for Halloween this year, and that Little Little Man, who will be 11 months by Halloween could be a Baby Monster T-Rex in bed.  As you can see, BLM's pjs are two piece with short sleeves and short pants.  LLM's are like a sleeper except without feet.  His dino suit has separate feet that slip over his shoes.  BLM will slip his feet right into his dino suit's feet.  I attached a rubber hair band to the back of the heel so that it can hook around the button that is inside the back of the leg, so that his feet will stay in.  I guess these feet will get pretty dirty when he's out trick-or-treating, but that's ok.
 Here's Big Little Man's head.
 He will look out through the mouth.  The teeth are made from Mr. Clean sponges.
 Here's where his head will fit.
 Little Little Man's head sits on top of a hood that will cover his head. 
Here's Big Little Man's naked T-Rex suit.  I didn't take a  photo of Little Little Man's without the pjs.  It looks like a smaller version of this one, pretty much.  His feet aren't attached, though. 
I have my friend, Marilyn to thank for this green stretchy ribbed fabric.  It was in the big box of fabric and trims that she gave me recently!!!!  I'm going to use some fabric from this box for Lil'E and Lil'B's costumes, too.  What a blessing to have friends like Marilyn, and like Tina, who has loaned me her machine so I can make these costumes.  I am such a lucky lady!!!!!
Thank you to those of you who wished my daughter well, through the hurricane power outage.  They got their power back on Saturday, after 7 days without it!  They were safe and no damage was done to their home, so they were actually lucky.  Our daughter in MA had no damage either.
We are getting the rain from Tropical Storm Lee right now, but it is badly needed, so I am not complaining!!!!  It has cooled down considerably, too!  Whew!   These 90+ temps have been miserable!!!!  It's going to be in the 70s for a few days!!!!
The insurance company is investigating whether or not they will replace my machine if it can't be fixed.  Of course I have  a deductible I'll have to meet first.  But, I'm truly hoping that mine can be fixed!

What darling costumes and what a great idea!!! Nice job on them too!

Glad that your daughter got her power back on. 7 Days is a long time to be without it. I can imagine the loss of food after such a long outage. Yikes!

Julia- these are so adorable! The boys are going to have so much fun this Halloween!! I'm sorry I missed your last couple of posts- hectic here at work- working right through the holiday- and it's hard for me to keep up. I'm so glad to hear all of your family is okay- and I send you all my love. Still crossing my fingers they can fix your machine ♥
