This year we had a gorilla and his friend the pirate for Halloween. Kenzie decided to be a pirate and I ran about collecting fun embellishments for the costume. However, on the big day where she wore her costume to school - we learned that the eye patch freaked her out a wee bit, so it was quickly discarded. She announced that she'd rather be a "pretty princess kind of pirate." And, she turned out just adorable.... She added different bits and pieces to the costume each time she wore it, and on Halloween night, went with a much simplified version!
