Halloween Costumes

This is my daughter's last year to Trick-or-Treat. She's in 8th grade, so tonight is her last "hurrah" for door-to-door candy collecting.

She and her two friends are trick-or-treating with her friend's 2nd grade sister. They're chaperoning the little sister but also get to dress up and collect candy themselves. Afterward, they'll meet back at the friend's house for a party.

My daughter is dressing as The Mad Hatter. A cute, girly version of The Mad Hatter, that is. (Note: She will not be taking my grandmother's china tea cup with her. That stays home.)

It doesn't seem long ago that she looked like this on Halloween night:

At 5 years old, she was a fairy princess with her ballerina dog in tow. That facial expression looks familiar though.

It says, "Are you done taking photos? I want to go get me some candy!"
