October 2008

Liliana’s school hosted a Halloween party for all of the children.  We originally thought the bug would dress up as a beautiful purple butterfly (as mentioned in an earlier post).  However, Nana F. surprised Liliana with an adorable Tinkerbell costume, shoes and all.  So, we tried the outfit on the bug, and all of us were absolutely in love.  And to top it off, the butterfly wings from what would have been her original outfit were a perfect match for the Tinkerbell costume.  So, here is the bug as the happiest, cutest, most adorable Tinkerbell ever.

Butterfly Liliana

Short post.  Liliana received her wings…her butterfly wings that is.  She is so excited at the possibility of flitting around on Halloween as a butterfly that she had to try on her costume the other day.  Here she is seen gazing at her lepidopterous image.  Don’t worry, here in South Dakota we will not be allowing our daughter to prance around the neighborhood in October in a mini-skirt.  No, she will be wearing 2-inch thick leggings with snow pants over top, 5 sweaters, thermal moon boots with wool socks, three pairs of mittens, a long hand-knitted wool scarf, and a fuzzy wool cap to keep her little ears nice and toasty.  Christmas StoryThen again with that outfit she should probably just dress as “Randy” from A Christmas Story rather than a petite, fragile little butterfly.  We’ll let her decide.  Come to think of it she has been prancing around the house lately in both outfits, so who knows what will happen on Halloween.  Only time will tell.

Hark!  A snowsuit...
