Jesse the Yodeling Cowgirl

For Halloween this year Olivia decided to be "Jesse" from Toy Story II. We rented the movie so I could see what the costume looked like and apparently while I was making my notes, Livvy was making some of her own as well. The hat must be red "with white string on it Mom!", the shirt must be white "with yellow swirls and bracelets on the wrists" (she meant yellow embroidery and cuffs), and "Mom! Jesse wears a great big watch around her waste!" (a belt with a buckle.) She was absolutely adamant about the details of this costume. (Which made making it myself somewhat difficult.) Let's just say it's a good thing she was such a dang cute cowgirl or this one (the chaps in particular) would have me swearing off sewing forever. Anyway - here's a few pictures of her in her costume and our fun family night carving pumpkins with daddy (she was not a fan of the goop.) Oh - her version of Jesse "yodeling": "oh lady who?!" while galloping around the house.
