Next Halloween....

Last October I saw this costume in a catalog. I knew it HAD to be The One for Mia's first trick-or-treat. But I hesitated in buying it. First, because I wasn't really sure when she'd be home or how old she'd be when her first Halloween rolled around. Second, because everywhere I looked it was priced between $40-$60. That's a lot of money. Especially when taking a risk that I'd choose the wrong size and she'd not be able to wear it.But after Halloween I saw it on sale! For only $17.99 with free shipping. I did some calculations and took a guess that the 12-18 mth size would probably fit. For less than $20 I was willing to take the chance. And with the most likely scenario now being that I'll get a referral just after the first of the year and travel to bring her home in the spring, I'm confident I guessed right.

So next year.... Mia will be an adorable little top hat wearing penguin as she finally gets to go trick-or-treating with her cousins for the very first time. Which will be a dream a long time coming. And I'm so looking forward to it.

I'm just about ready to cry imagining you and Mia next year - and I probably will when you have photos to share of her in her cute costume.

Right now Pier One has a ton of cute penguin themed items, like wine glasses and ornaments and such. I thought of you when I saw the catalog yesterday :)
