When we asked Lauren recently what she wanted to be for Halloween, she said, "A ballerina like Trina" (there is a show on Disney called JoJo's Circus and her friend Trina is a, you guessed it, ballerina). So a ballerina she will be.
As a matter of fact, last year she went as both a ladybug and a ballerina since our temperatures varied so much in a matter of two days. One costume was built to keep her warm (the ladybug) and one was to keep her cool (a cheap ballerina costume from Old Navy complete with shoes).
Now comes the hard part. The shoes are her favorite part. This year. Last year's costumes shoes, on this year's feet. See where I'm going with this? She wants to wear them all of the time. She doesn't seem to care that they are too small. She loves them. She wants to wear them all of the time, including to bed (and for those of you following along, I allow the shoes in bed in order to get some much needed sleep).
I need to get her some new shoes so she doesn't get bunions.
Good thing she's a great dancer, and so darn cute!!!
I'll post pictures when the time comes for trick or treating in the final costume.
