What should Lila be for Halloween

Last year, we were at a loss for good ideas for Lila's first Halloween costume so we asked you all to help us brainstorm.  Then we narrowed down our options to our three favorites and had you all vote for your favorite of the three.  The three options were Cindy Lou Who, a Monchhichi and the Lila version of Donny and Marie (she's a little bit country and a little bit rock-n-roll).  And the winner was....Cindy Lou Who!

And what a cute Cindy Lou Who she was!
This year, we have a few ideas, but we're open to other ideas as well.  Once we have our top three, we'll do another poll to decide which costume to use.

Here are the ideas we have so far:

1. Go Chiefs!
We found a cutie pie Chiefs Cheerleader dress in a bin of hand-me-downs and since Lila loves to say, "Go Chiefs!" whenever any football game is on (it actually kinda sounds like she's saying "Go Cheese!" but it's cute either way) we thought it would be a fun Halloween idea.  Plus, I'm loving Lila's ponytails these days.

2. Kermit the Frog
Lila loves the Muppet Show.  With a passion.  Which is why we watched it non-stop when she was sick.  I realized (through a little internet snooping) that I could easily make a Kermit costume with a green sweat suit, a felt neck piece and a foam ball cut in half.

3. Some sort of animal
An owl?  A chick? A cow? A dog?  A turtle?

That's all we've got.  Any other ideas?  Leave a comment and we'll come up with our top three and get a poll going in the next week or so.

P.S. Sorry we've been quiet on the adoption front.  We're still waiting for my fingerprints to come back so that our home study can be finalized.  Eric's been working on grant applications and I've started the paperwork for our dossier.  Please pray that my fingerprints come back soon without any hitches!  We'll keep you updated!

In the words of Lila, "Three, six, ready, go!"

Yah kermit....But Em is being an owl. So it would be super cute to have two owls! (A little owl family!)

Kermit the frog! It's not easy being green!
