Lucy was The Girl With the Plan, this year. She is a huge fan of Alice in Wonderland, and saved up to buy her own copy of the Robert Ingpen version of the book because the illustrations are just that good. Lucy had a vision, and she shopped Goodwill until she found what she was envisioning. She even designed her apron out of placemats, which I thought was kind of brilliant.
Dazz shopped her own closet, debating about being the March Hair, or the Chesire Cat, and in the end, she had everything she needed for the Chesire Cat.
Gigi is recycling her brother’s costume from a couple years back as the caterpillar from Alice. A Very Serious Caterpillar.
Mama and Papa were the Queen of Hearts and the Mad Hatter, respectively. Lucy and Dazz found everything we needed for our costumes in either our closets or Goodwill.
Stuart wanted to buck the family trend and be a pirate this year. But he was certain that he needed a scar on his face to show why he would be wearing an eye patch.
And spunky little Cece is dressing up as Madeline. Which is adorable and everything, but apparently she’s been thinking about it a lot in her subconscious, because she woke up at 3 a.m. and sang several rounds of the Madeline theme song at the top of her voice the other night.
