This was a very busy Halloween weekend. Of course we didn't take any pictures of the activities that we participated in, but we do have pictures of Delaney in her costume. In deciding what Delaney should be this year, I took into consideration the fact that (a)I did not want to make her a costume that she would most likely wear once, and (b) I didn't want to purchase something at the store that she would most likely wear once. So I looked into her closet and concocted a cowgirl costume that turned out pretty rootin' tootin' cute. The red gingham shirt was mine when I was a child, which made her costume that much more special. The boots and hat were purchased by Grammie and Grandpa, the dress was a birthday present, and I bought the vest for $1 at a consignment sale two years ago. Score!

Posing with her stick horse

We fought over that hat all night long!

Her special pumpkin, shipped all the way from Hood River.

Cowpoke Delaney, full of mischief.

Her trusty sidekick Brundibar

Go ahead, gobble her up. I know you want to.
