ARRRRGGGGGG.....We be wishing you a Happy Halloween!!!!

Thought you all might enjoy viewing this swashbuckling Autumnal ensemble Lia sported to a midget football game this morning. Can you read the independent, conventions be d***ed attitude coming through loud and clear??? You're getting that, right??

For the record...the rain boots are a size and 1/2 too small...and that IS a red Philles (because who isn't a Phanatic these days???) shirt under that pulled out of the hamper Halloween sweatshirt.

Lia...1
Mom...0...and in need of a nap.

...and, well, for the further record...when we got to the game, it was pouring...and we realized the only umbrella we had...was the one Lia brought. It took her three and 1/2 years...but she has finally outsmarted us. We're happy we lasted this long.

That's hysterical! She's got a mind of her own, that girl! Sorry it's raining but hope you are having a smashing weekend!

You go, Lia!! Love the ensemble and the expression on her face cracks me up! Glad she remembered the umbrella. I am wondering if it is possible for it to rain
anymore??? : )

Have a great Sunday!

love,
Michelle

Love the outfit! Alexa is also getting very outspoken about what she wants to wear. I think those days are over of just dressing them like we want. ; (

I can't leave the house without my daughter's umbrella. She LOVES it, and now she has rain boots, too because it's totally justifiable after all the rain we've had. Lia looks adorable in hers!

Have a great week!

My girls are a bit late at 7,5 but starting to choose their own outfits on some days... I love her expression!

That was funny Kate! You speak for mothers of 4-year-old little girls everywhere!! Lia's "stance" really cracks me up. I'd recognize that pose anywhere... now that I've got Libby ;)
