Princesses are for Sissies!!!

Halloween this year was a hoot! Ella was supposed to be a cute little black cat... but she really wasn't too into wearing her ears. I know little girls her age tend to go for cute little princess or bunny costumes, but our daughter seemed to fit the Burglar role better. We dubbed her the Cat Burglar for the night - and she caught onto the whole trick or treat thing pretty quick! It wasn't long before she was heading to the doors with pumpkin in hand, plopping her bucket on the ground and exclaiming "thanks!" as she headed off with her loot! My pictures are awful because the kids moved way to quick, and apparently I have no idea how to take pictures in the dark... but here's what we've got!

Cooper the Frog, Carson the Duck, and Hopey the Garden Gnome!

I now understand that rule about not dressing your kids in dark colors when going out to trick or treat...

"One of these things is not like the other..."

Hmmm... I think next year I'm going to be the Grim Reaper!!!
