Our Halloween Costumes Have Arrived!

This will be my daughter’s first year walking for Halloween so I decided to get her a costume.  As a small child, my favorite super hero was Wonder Woman.  My daughter certainly has a personality to match Wonder Woman so I thought perhaps that this costume would be the most appropriate for us to share for our first year out actually trick or treating.

For myself, I just bought a cape and crown but for her, I decided to go all out and buy her the entire outfit.  We tried it on and at first, she didn’t like the material.  What hooked her were the boot covers.  I have a feeling that there are going to be lots of dress up playdates in her future!  BUT without the candy!
