The kids rode the bus in from Miami's Lorah Elementary School. They were filled with excitement as they met everyone and were given the opportunity to shop for their very own Halloween costume of their choice.
Dan and my little cutie pie that we were helping chose to be a princess. She was so timid at first, but by the end we had her giggling and choosing exactly what she wanted. We found not only the best princess dress, but also glittery shoes, bracelets, gloves, rings, necklaces, hair extensions, a crown, purse, and wand.
I helped her try everything on to be sure it fit perfectly. After getting everything just right, I turned on the sparkle lights in the skirt of her gown, and whirled her around towards the mirror. When she caught her first glimpse of herself her eyes lit up like the Fourth of July! The quiet little girl quickly became one gleaming little princess with a smile that could win over any prince.
When we emerged from the bathroom to show Dan he agreed that she was the most beautiful princess he had ever seen! She was tickled pink and so were we. She got everything she wanted plus more. All three of us had a ball.
We didn't manage to get a picture of the complete outfit all on at once. We were having too much fun to think about pictures much, but here are a few that the Dolphins caught, or I caught on my phone.

She was happy as can be and so were we!
I hope she has the best Halloween ever this year and gets lots of candy!
What a pretty princess she will be!
