This year I tried something a little different. The kids bought their costumes with their OWN money. I think that's going to be something we just do here. Makes sense to me.
The Butterfly Princess:
We pinned her wings on and they looked really pretty great.
She wanted this costume last year, but they were all sold out. And she was just as excited about it this year.
The Love Bug:
The antennas hurt her head, but she's really pretty darn cute without them. Plus, then daddy and Carsten got to wear them.
The Puppy Dog:
His tail wags when he walks. Makes me giggle. And Grace made sure he had a proper tag--a piece of paper that has his name on it pinned to his collar.
And I'm hoping for this same miracle at Christmas time:
Honestly, I think this whole they-are-in-charge-of-their-own-costumes thing is the most brilliant idea I've had in a while.
