I had originally wanted Mary to be a lamb for Halloween. However, I wasn't interested in buying or making a costume, and I was unable to find one to borrow, so we had decided on the classic costume for babies: the pumpkin. Someone lent me an adorable handmade costume,and we were all set to use it, until this. We stumbled upon a really sweet bonnet while in Mark Twain's hometown of Hannibal, MO. And thus, the scramble for an ensemble began. Charlie was Tom Sawyer, Sam was Huck Finn (ofcourse) and Mary? Well Mary was Becky Thatcher~ We bought the bonnet, and found the dress, and all I had to make were the bloomers. Not too bad!
Mary liked Trick or Treating, and Scott gave her a tiny bit of chocolate.
