Weeks back she decided she was going to be Belle.
Then, two days ago, we found this dress 50% off at the second-hand kids' store.
I must add how proud I am of her today:
She went to the dentist and got two cavities filled, and she did great. She was so brave and cooperative. Afterward she said, "Getting my fillings wasn't so bad after all!"
And yes, getting your teeth fixed right BEFORE Halloween is ironic, but not a totally bad idea.
Beauty AND the Beast
This is our first year trick-or-treating, and boy was it a hit. A few weeks before, she thought we were supposed to be passing out treats at each house, and she was trying to come up with ideas. But after several re-explanations, she got it. And she loved every part of it - her enthusiasm only increased with each house.
(And I hope someday some brave costume-clad trick-or-treaters DO scale Goodrich Hill to solicit our house! I will be ready!)
Here we are with the Eckleys. We went around their Brooktondale neighborhood, then closed out with the Community Center party. Free games and snacks and more candy! Amazing!
This gorgeous log cabin was home to one very quiet, but very friendly & generous bear.
The little girls loved dancing to the bluegrass music at the Community Center.
