    I tried to get a better photo of them together, but the external flash for my DSLR crapped out shortly after this one. :(


    Ugly, blurry phone pic. But he was just SO HAPPY. Had to share. :D

    Thank you both. :D

    I will try to update with a better picture of the two together once the flash batteries have recharged, because they are seriously ADORABLE together.

    Thanks again for all the nice comments! :D

    I did make it! Though I will admit, I had a TON of help from my mom. This was my first real attempt at reading a sewing pattern. While I've been sewing for years and feel pretty comfortable at the machine, I never learned any real sewing lingo. :p

    My mom pretty much made Morgan's costume for me, 1) because I was observing how it all worked, and 2) because she had to upsize it from the pattern quite a bit, which takes a certain skill that I don't have yet. :p The largest dog size pattern was 17"... Morgan is decidedly larger than that. :rolleyes:

    As for Justin's, that took me about two weeks to do. Little bits here and there, one day at a time, and a several "do overs". :p
