Eloise has only had two Halloweens but I think I've done a pretty good job at making her extremely adorable costumes. For her first year she was a Bee (or Ba-bee) and last year she was a Little Lion.
This year I had my heart set on Eloise as Little Orphan Annie - Chris was going to be Daddy Warbucks, I'd be Mrs. Hannigan and Granby would be Sandy the dog - but she surprised me by coming up with her own costume. She has combined her love for ballet and newfound obsession with Disney's Aristocats to come up with a ballerina kitty cat. My mom has been practicing Eloise's makeup and I often come home to this:
I told Eloise the other night that everything was set for her ballerina kitty cat costume now that we found her a black tutu to match her tail and cat ears.
