So I'm not sure how schools work for Halloween near all of you, but in Ella's school only Kindergartners dress up..and only as characters from books. They dress up as the character and bring the book in to share. Very nice...except when Ella declared that Elsa didn't come from a book and she wanted to be Clara from the Nutcracker. Which meant another costume. In a week. So, I did a rush job on an old fashioned night dress inspired by the picture from the book and think I did a darn good job.
