Happy Halloween!!

I think that one of my favorite things about
Halloween was going to the store to pick out
a costume. I LOVED all of those masks peeking out
of the windows of the cardboard boxes and the
plastic smell of the costume!!
At 4, most little girls want to be a princess
or a ballerina - NOT ME!!!
A costume fitting for a "little monster"!
At least mom made sure that my hair bows
matched the costume!!

Have a HAPPY HALLOWEEN everyone!! Be safe!!
