When I asked Rilo what she wanted to be back in September, she said "a party". At first I giggled and then the more I thought about it, the more I loved it! Even though the idea had been formed a month and a half ago, I still waited until yesterday to make the costumes. Whoops!!
Rilo was the cake, Collier was the ice cream, I was the present and Adam (who ended up having a bunch of meetings, therefore couldn't fully dress up) was the decorations. Rilo tried to eat all her candy as we went, when I wasn't looking. She ate so much! I think the Great Pumpkin might come tonight and replace the candy with something special though!
And on a separate note, a former client and online friend of mine just found out her sweet little girl R, has a large brain tumor. R is just a few months younger than Rilo (2) and it breaks my heart thinking about all that my friend and the rest of her family are going through. She has 3 other little girls back at home, including a baby who is the same age as Collier. Any thoughts and prayers in their direction would be appreciated. And if you feel inclined to donate to help them, you can do so here.
