The Halloween photos
Chakisae had a two-costume Halloween. She was a dinosaur for her school Halloween parade and Batman for trick-or-treating. Both costumes came from Ben's collection, so we were fine with the dual outfits. More importantly, she was thrilled with both her looks (you'll have to ignore her fake-serious look in the photos). Have I mentioned she is not a girlie girl?
Ben was a gangster. So were four of his friends. They were quite the cute gang (though don't tell them that. Nine-year-old boys don't want to be cute). And that is a fake cigarette -- and a fake gun (hence the bright orange). I started out as the parent who banned gun toys. Somewhere along the way, I guess I kind of gave up that fight.
