i mean look how ridiculously perfectly cute these little minions are!!
note: they spent most of the evening in full character, saying "bee-doh, bee-doh, beeeee-doohhh!" they make me so proud.
for actual Halloween, Ellie pulled me aside and said, "Mama, i reallllly like being a Minion...but can i please be something pretty for Kindergarten?"
how do i say no to that?
since she has been growing like a weed and has like NO dress-ups that fit her anymore, and since the Disney store was having like some sort of mega sale, i decided, what the hey, you can pick whatever princess dress you want for Halloween.
so Ellie chose Belle. she was the perfect Belle! she looked so, so beautiful.
and Alice didn't really need any dress-ups since she inherits all of Ellie's hand-me-downs. but i really stink at not being fair, so i decided to let her pick one too. well, lucky for me, they had JUST put out the Frozen costumes (which hadn't even come out in theaters yet), and guess which ensemble Alice got attached to? Elsa's dress! a princess we knew nothing about! so i tried and tried and TRIED to convince her to be something else....................but there's no thawing this threenager's frozen heart. and so, she was Elsa before anyone knew who the heck Elsa was. i love this kid.
Ellie's elementary school did a Kindergarten Parade - so we got to go watch her in that. so stinkin adorable!
while Ellie was at school, Alice and i went to a little pumpkin patch and had a date. we had so much fun! petting animals, taking pictures, picking little pumpkins. it was a blast. i love my little buddy.
