My sister had a Halloween party today. Instead of being Yoda, Alexandra was a sweet little lamb. Her dad was a shepherd (a beardless shepherd since the fake beard made Allie cry). And I was an explorer. Or maybe Jane Goodall. Couldn't decide.
Allie was so cute I wanted to kiss her little face off.
The reason she's looking a bit sheepish (ha, ha!) is that she just had her first run in with a clown. The verdict: She really doesn't like clowns. My Aunt Cin was wearing silly glasses, a floppy hat and a red clown nose. When she approached, Allie shrieked and started sobbing. I think this is the first time I've seen her really frightened.
Jett was the cutest pirate I've ever seen. But, of course, I can't show you pictures of that. My sister Chris was Dr. Horrible, and Mike coveted her evil doctor goggles.
Once Allie saw the dogs, she returned to her old self.
Tonight, she got to babysit Hadassah. She was a very good babysitter.
And, fret not, Allie will be wearing this costume twice more this Halloween season, so I will certainly be regaling you with more photos.
