We are getting a lot of use out of Mairead's elephant costume- she has already worn it to our twin party and to a party at her preschool. The big night is tomorrow, but I have a feeling that won't be the last we see of this costume. She loves it! She had a great time at the party and loved seeing all of the other kids in their costumes. Today, she asked to "read a story- trick or treat." I was happy to hear that because it means that she 'gets' the holiday and is enjoying it!
Yesterday, Mairead wore a cute little pumpkin shirt to school. Really, the socks made the outfit. When Jen came to visit last night, we brought out Mairead's tap shoes and she danced the same way we did when we were little- on the leaves from the dining room table. She had a blast. The boys loved it too- especially Ben. He kept running and dancing his way up and down the leaves.
