Wonder Woman and Company

Willow decided that she wanted to be Wonder Woman this year for Halloween, and her grandmother whipped up a costume for her. Yes, we could have bought a Wonder Woman costume from Target, but I didn't think my 7 year old needed to be prancing around in a bustier just quite yet.

Here she is with her friend Bat Woman (aka Mackenzie). I took plenty of pictures in her classroom, but at some point I gave up on having a photo where everyone is in focus. Seven and eight-year olds just can't stay still for that long!

My favourite costume of the parade - Willow tells me that this is her friend, Bella. Her Christmas tree costume is adorable.

She has gone back to her old form of closing her eyes for flash photography. I just don't get it. In any case, we had about an hour of trick-or-treating before the deluge began. You can see in that last picture that we were pretty soaked by the time we got home. I was really surprised at how many kids were going through our neighbourhood - we had more kids come to our door before we left for trick-or-treating than we had in the last two years combined!

Hi Jo,
Kate does that too-- closes her eyes when the camera flashes. Drives me nuts!

Jo-

a) willow looks nice.
b) K closes hi eyes as well...defeat my attempts to take a good foto ..

c) At K's school PTA meeting- I saw a 5 year old dressed up in a bandana top and daisy dukes...Gave me a "wow! I am more conservative than I thought!" moment. Another was in a "princess jasmine (see throughish)" costume....what are we doing to our children? then we wonder why girls (and boys) are growing up fast and with eating disorders!!
