The Story Behind the Cast of Characters from the Wizard of Oz...

 Grace was so excited to be Dorothy for Halloween this year.  I think the character of Dorothy was just perfect for Grace.  Grace had first suggested the Wizard of Oz theme back in August.  Jack and Eve agreed right away and from there the characters were chosen and Maddy started designing and sewing.  

Every time I think of Jack as Toto it makes me smile...of all of the characters in the Wizard of Oz Jack knew right away that he, most definitely and without any doubt, wanted to be Toto!  Grace tried really hard to talk Jack into being the Scarecrow or Tin Man but his heart was set on Toto from the start.

Little Eve as the Wicked Witch of the West.  This also makes me smile because Eve is such a little sweet pea so it was fun to see her in such a different role.  She has perfected "I'll get you my pretty and your little dog too" and she has the cutest little witch laugh.

What a wonderful, loving tradition! Every year, they are the loveliest Halloween costumes out there, and the children wearing them are as cute as can be. And happy, they are elated!
What a treat for all of us!

Much love to each of you,

Got Gracie, Jack & Eve?
