Halloween Costume Fun

Time for the Halloween costumes to continue!

For the second time now, I was lucky enough to get invited to and be able to attend a Halloween fundraiser.  I just had to donate some money and, in return, I received some great pictures of my daughters!

The cause this year was MD Anderson — a place that I know does fantastic things and that I could fully support.  One of the reasons I love Houston is that it has such great medical facilities.

This year I made both my girls costumes.

First, there was Cinderella:

Then, there was Cinderella’s little mouse friend:

Finally, there was Cinderella laughing at her little mouse friend’s discomfort in the too-small mouse hat:

Ha!

You should definitely take a peak at the whole slideshow from the event.  It features more than 60 kids and can be found here.  It totally had me laughing!!

And Lyndsay from Life in Motion Photography is a great photographer!  Check out this blog entry where you can donate to MD Anderson yourself through her and you’ll be on the list to attend the Halloween fundraiser next year AND possibly win a mini session for yourself in a couple months!

I’ll give some more details on these costumes later on this month.  🙂  SO happy with how they turned out and they’re getting lots of play in our house already!
