Hey everybody, it’s me Lisa Summerhays. Wanna come inside my family’s Disneyland trip photo album? Well, alright!
We are back from a week of fun and the hot, hot sun at Disneyland. Today I’m sharing what I made for my kids to wear. However, I do believe every second of picture-taking is increasingly being viewed by the kiddos as a way for Mom to mercilessly torture them. As if!
For my youngest, I made a Minnie themed ruffle bum romper. To make it, I used the ruffle bum romper pattern from Peek-a-boo Pattern Shop.
So fun! This is like a “name that ride” photo game, too!
I added some lace to the ruffles and a collar. I adore these red and white polka dots. They are from the Bonnie and Camille Miss Kate line. I do believe it’s the perfect shade of red. I love how this outfit turned out. How could I not when it shows off Quinn’s chubba-legs. Chubby babies are the cutest thing ever.
Next tortured, I mean adorable child is my son. I made him a Jack Skellington hoodie. Smart move on my part since it ended up being in the 90-100 degree weather range. He didn’t get much use out of it.
I used the BIMAA Sweater pattern by Lou Bee Clothing. We love going to Disneyland in October when the Haunted House is all decked out with the cast from Nightmare Before Christmas, so a little Jack was definitely called for.
This little four year old was a complete daredevil! He went on every fast ride he was tall enough to go on and loved them — even Tower of Terror. He’s braver than me. His excitement was contageous.
Do children not understand if they’d just stand up straight and give a happy smile then picture taking would die down to a minimum instead of a bajillion attempts to get one half-decent photo? I refrained from shaking them while explaining this concept. They are my best creations to date. I do believe it’s my right to photograph them every chance I get. I think they are heck-a-cute.
I also made my oldest daughter a Little Mermaid inspired outfit complete with sparkly bling. I let her wear makeup too. Yep, I sure did.
The green sparkly fabric is from JoAnn’s. I’m not going to share the “pattern” on this one. I’d feel guilty doing so. It was pricey, didn’t come with any pattern pieces, and I ended up just figuring out a solutions to make it work. I don’t want another sewing reader’s frustrations from purchasing it on my conscience.
And just to show you where they get their amazingly good looks, here’s a photo of my husband from our day at the beach. I know, it runs in the family.
Anybody seen the movie Clifford? The one with Martin Short? It’s a movie we watched as kids and my family quotes. While scrolling through the pictures of our trip I kept thinking of this clip from the movie. It’s my favorite.
