Little Red.....

Okay I just can't wait any longer. Here she is......Little Red Riding Hood!
She's on her way to Grandma's house with her basket of goodies through the woods. But have no fear - there wasn't a wolf in sight. In fact, I'm standing in the parking lot of my office taking this picture and these are the lovely woods behind the building.
But first she got to wear her costume to dance class with all the other girls on Wednesday. Are they cute or what?
As you can see Lexie has to get right next to the teacher, Ms Tanya and her helper big girl Amber (who lead the elephants during their recital the summer.)

What form, what poise....
And I have to introduce you to our youngest member of the class, KiKi!! Her grandma made her this costume and she was beyond adorable. (If you click on the picture of her with the hoop to make it bigger, you'll notice her diaper sticking out of the top of her pants!)

Then it was time for tap shoes and a march around the room tap, tap, tapping to the beat.
Of course KiKi had to do her own thing....
and Lexie was just loving it! I definitely have a dancer on my hands.
Then today, Friday, she had her Halloween party at pre-school so she got to wear it again. She was so excited but mainly about getting to "whack" the pinata the teachers had set up. That's my girl!

They also had a costume parade as well as trick-or-treating to all the different rooms and offices around the building. So she had a ball. And if that wasn't enough we also went to a festival at one of the elementary schools. This "row of houses" for trick-or-treating was one of the first things as you entered and I thought it was very cute.
They had to knock on the little doors, then say trick or treat and they were handed a treat.

Lexie thought it was great and wanted to "walk the block" a couple of times. Boy am I in trouble tomorrow!
Then it was off to the Cup Cake Walk which she took very seriously, until.....

she won her cake!

Next it was time for the game room where they had lots of different games for them to play and win, your guessed it, candy!

I think her favorite part was waiting in line so she could sneak a bite of her cupcake.

Then we found our friend "Dorothy" but Toto was no wear to be found. She was so stinkin' cute.
Baby Mia as Lexie calls her, is a friend of mine Rachel's just turned one year old daughter that Lexie just loves. Partly I think because she gets to be the big girl with Mia. Of course she had to show Mia the ropes and take her to the Cup Cake Walk....
which they won. But I just couldn't get Lexie to slow down. Lexie dragged Mia all around the cake walk and then rushed her off to the little street to show her how to trick or treat. Mia had no problem getting the hang of it and really loved the magical people inside the buildings.
Soon after that we said our good-byes and headed on home. Lexie crash half way through my reading of "I've got a Wocket in my Pocket" so you know she was pooped! I can't believe tomorrow is the real Halloween. I wonder if she'll know the difference if we just stay home?

Happy Halloween!!

My little Ewoks can try to eat your Little Red Riding Hood all up if it would help you complete the ensemble!

I love this costume! How perfect - just what I always thought Little Red Riding Hood would look like! =)

You did a great job; it looks like Lexie had a blast.
