Halloween Sneak Peek

Remember when I told you Leila was going to be a flapper this year?  Yeah, not so much.  {But lucky girl does get to keep it for dress-up!}  Anyways, a few weeks ago Tony worked as a bike medic at a festival in Dublin where we met some fun ladies who made awesome kids things, one of which made tutus and costumes out of tutus.  I fell in love with an angel costume and tried to steer Leila in that direction, but she wasn't budging.  A few days go by and Leila and I had this conversation:

Leila: "Remember when daddy was on the bike and we saw tutus?"
Me: "Yes."
Leila: "Remember the white tutu with the wings?"
Me: "The angel costume?"
Leila: "I don't want to be a flapper anymore.  I want to be an angel.  Please, and you're really beautiful."  (Seriously - she knows how to butter people up.)
Me: (eye roll) "I'll try to find that lady again."

A few weeks passed, and today Leila's crazy cute angel costume was delivered.  I'd be annoyed if I didn't love it so much.  Ramon is going to be a devil, and Sugar is going to be an angel as well.  {And el diablo did not want to do a photo shoot.}

Happy {very early} Halloween!
