HALLOWENDY!


*Wendy with her Great-Grandma Witten


For Halloween this year, Wendy was FOOFA. She had this amazing hand crocheted poncho that her mom's mom's mom (aka. Great-Grandma Witten) made her!! She LLOOOVVESS it! I thought I would have to prep her, you know, let her wear it every once in a while so she'd keep it on for Halloween. But boy was I wrong! I don't know how to get it off of her. She's been carrying it around the house for the whole month of October like a blankie.


The night before Halloween, Wendy got to hang out with THE REAL FOOFA! Along with all the other characters and "mama" Lance Rock (which is what she calls him). She was in heaven and wouldn't let them leave her sight. Lance was a wonderful sport and gave Wendy lots of attention. He made her night, and therefore made mine as well. Maybe one day she'll know how lucky she is.

Special thanks to Grandma Witten for taking the time to make this wonderful costume for Wendy! I can't even tell you how many compliments we got or how much she loves it. THANK YOU!

Oh my gosh! Xoe and Xanthe would totally wear that. haha. Meljean should seriously sell her stuff. She'd make a fortune! I'd buy sweaters galore for spencer! The girls wear their hats all the time, even to school. And I love the YGG pictures. I'm sad I couldn't be there! Happy Halloween!

Grandma Meljean is so nice to make that costume and yes, Wendy is adorable. I just love to look at all her facial expressions, she is so expressive. Pink is her color. I think you and Ryan look pretty cute too. Did you get that much candy? Happy Halloween!
