Kristiana changes clothing and dress-up costumes probably 5-7 times a day. Yes, it drives me a bit mad, because the clothing is never neatly put away. But, she wore this pumpkin fairy costume the entire week last week. Well, she did alternate with her blue princess dress. This pumpkin fairy costume is an 18 month sized costume. It was supposed to be for Lucy, but Kristiana just had to have it. It was way too short. It does not go to her knees as it appears in this illusory photograph. I made her wear shorts with it.
Lucy had to borrow the neighbor's costume. But it was precious and suited her nicely.
Annie, the middle child, was just happy to be a part of the show. She was going to be a ballerina, because she received a pretty pink ballet costume for her birthday. But she really liked the idea of being "Kitty Woman!" So she recycled Kristiana's costume.
Alex is a little difficult to nail down for a photo. He was Batman. If he had his way, he would be a ninja every year. But we found this Batman costume at a second hand store for $5. Batman is pretty close to ninja, right?
The little girl in the pink monster costume lives across the street and was born on the exact same day as Lucy.
The neighbor pulled Lucy and her bestie, Kyla in a wagon. It was perfect, because I could then watch the other little girls carefully. Lucy mastered trick or treating as soon as folks starting handing her candy. She had eaten 7 pieces of by the time she arrived home and was drunk on sugar and power. At one house the whole family sat on the drive with their baby boy in a camping chair. When the little boy stood up, Lucy planted herself in his chair as though she were going to stay.
