Halloween Costumes


So my four-year-old changes her mind A LOT. This poses a problem when it comes to Halloween costumes. We have gone from Little Red Riding Hood, to a "scary witch with a purple dress," to Dorothy from Wizard of Oz. I thought we had settled on Dorothy. She said she wanted her baby sister to be Toto. So that was the plan...until this morning.
I mentioned to my husband that I was going to order their costumes today (wish I had time to figure out some cute, creative way to make them myself, but I don't, so I'm paying for someone else's creativity and I'm ok with that). My daughter overheard me mention them and I said, "You still want to be Dorothy, right?" That was met with sure "No!," like I had lost my mind. So she informed me she wanted to be Alice in Wonderland and as a result, baby sister can't be Toto. So #1 is Alice and #2 is now going to be the Cheshire Cat and I think it will all be pretty stinking cute.

Parker may have something to say about being a fat cat who talks in riddles for Halloween when she gets older! But I agree that it will be absolutely adorable. Must post pictures.

I'm really excited. She definitely already looks more like Alice with that blonde hair.

Ariel will be so cute with her red hair! I love it!

Oh, and Monica - we said we'll have to teach her to blow smoke rings before Halloween. THat should be fun.

FYI it will NOT get better - Tori has been thinking on this one since Sept 4 and I lost count at idea number 12! Oh and the looks, they don't go away either :) But they will be precious - post pics!
