Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! For Halloween, I made Ellie a flower costume. I modeled it after an Anne Geddes pic, and the pot was last minute inspiration from Adam. I am just so thrilled that my daughter is so cooperative! Everyone was so amazed she kept that thing on, and smiled and giggled too! She is such a happy little girl :) She won first place in a costume contest at the mall here. It was so fun! While we walked around the mall the judges hunted us down to enter her becuase several people had told them about her! A lot of people took her picture, and later I wondered if I should have maybe stopped them? I don't know, I don't see a problem, but it seems sort of weird that about 50 people I don't know have pictures of my baby. Oh well! I also realized Halloween with a baby is very different from one without, in that I was exhausted by the time it was over! And she can't even walk yet :) I'm in trouble next year...
