As I've said before, this is the first year Raya picked her own costume. It's definitely not what *I* would have chosen!! But she loves it and she worked it out today hehe.
Can you spot Miss Raya Marie in her class?
Her costume just cracks me up because I have to pull the bottom up so much in order for her to walk, that it ends up being a very unproportional mermaid! :-P And it's a horrible costume to layer up for freezing Iowa Halloweens too. But she proudly told everyone what she was and my oh my, was she in her element collecting candy! (We all walked on a parade through downtown and all the businesses passed out candy---we got a ton! Harper and Brielle sure did march up to each business and get their own too :-P)
Here is a zoomed in photo of the girls in Raya's class (except for the kangeroo, who is also a girl...she didn't make it in this picture)
This picture makes me laugh and laugh. It's why I refer to her costume (lovingly) as "the drag queen mermaid" haha...it's all so wrong, yet all so right for Miss Raya Marie! :-)
One last one to hold you all over until tomorrow---and tomorrow my little pink furry monster will make her big Halloween debut---stay tuned!!!!
