Simple is sometimes better. ..

Yesterday was the Relay for Life in Southgate, MI. My sister works for the American Cancer Society and I always go out to her events that she plans. This year there was a trick-or-treat lap for kids to walk around and get candy. I found out about it two days ago, so I didn’t have much time to plan.

Judah hasn’t had a Halloween yet, because he’s only 3 1/2 months old, so he didn’t have a costume. His great-aunt had bought us a little baseball outfit for him, so we went with that. I was going to make him a plush baseball to carry, but Nathan suggested a little ping pong ball. It was perfectly to his scale. So I just washed off the ball, drew lines of a baseball on it with a paint marker, and there he had a little baseball!

here it is:

and here Judah is holding the baseball, with me and the whole outfit outside our house:

He got so many compliments yesterday, I’m so glad he could bring joy.

I’m writing this to say that even some of the simplest crafts make something so much better. ;D ;D
