We just got Sachi a costume for the halloween. I originally wanted a rag doll costume — the rugga muffin’ doll, but I figured with Sachi’s resilient character at this age, we might not be able to pull it up. It needs a hat, it needs a red wig. Oh how in the world can I ask her to do that when we can’t even clip her hair nor put on a headband with her knowing it?

So maybe that costume idea can come later. We got her the only costume that fits her. Its a stroybook character… 😀

So we got the costume… where do we go trick or treating now?

Here’s the selection I found so far over the net:
