Elise set the tone for costumes this year when she decided (while we were reading the chapter book Wizard of Oz) that Boss would make a perfect Toto and she would be a great Dorothy! I was thrilled when Bennett, on his own, decided he wanted to be the Tin Man! You know I love some coordination and a cohesive theme! So, Lila decided she would be the good witch. I decided she can think she is the good witch, but the wicked witch costume would be much easier to pull together! :) (She does play a good villain too!) We were able to borrow the Dorothy costume from Kimberly, so I only had to buy the Tin Man, and then the fabulous sparkly red shoes were buy one get one 1/2 off at Target, so both girls got a pair.
Our little good/wicked witch!
Dorothy and Toto
Off to see the Wizard....we would (to our surprise!) be picking up the scarecrow later!
We ran into lots of friends at the Boo-fet, and how perfect that Bennett's new buddy, Jack Ramsey, was the scarecrow! We ended up getting a giant table with the Richardsons, Groners, and Bristers (minus Patrick and Su).
Our little witch was feeling much more wicked than good last night and so Lila and I ended up having to go after about 30 minutes. I think she was just really tired, because she passed out before David and the other two even got home. But, Elise and Bennett had a TON of fun, and are already talking about next year!
