Halloween 2017 | Part II | Pirate Captain

Listen!  This girl of mine has so much spunk and moxie!  She is no push over and rocks it out at Taekwondo every week with her power kicks and fierce determination and discipline.  She is this amazing blend of kindness and courage.  And that usually means that her costume choices are always interesting and you can never tell which direction they will take, as we saw when she wanted to be Red Riding Hood one year and then next decided to be The Wolf!

This year she decided that a Pirate Captain was the way to go!  And friends, not just a Pirate, but to be clear, a Pirate Captain.  Because if she was going to be a pirate, we both agreed that she wouldn’t just be some random pirate, but the Captain.  She’s a boss lady already.  For the past two years she always says to me, “Mommy, let’s be boss ladies together, okay?” Indeed!

#bossladies #warriorwomen #girlstrong

Warmly,

Halloween 2017 | Part I | Kakashi Sensei

Alas, another year has passed in the blink of an eye!  I have missed this space and am returning this month to regular blogging here.  But for today, I return with our annual Halloween costume photo shoots.  This year has been a big year for Japanese Anime at our house, at least for my son.  And so here is is as Kakashi Sensei from the anime Naruto.

He finally has an official headband now, but for over a year he has made DIY versions using old soda cans and perfected his prototypes meticulously.  It was so fun to see his joy to have the real deal.  And he worked so hard on making sure we got as many details of the Kakashi character right as possible.  I love to watch my kids really get into character!  And let’s face it, we love a good photo shoot around here … did I say that last year? I probably did! It’s still true this year.

Hope you had a wonderful Halloween!

Warmly,

Magdalena

P.S. For reference, the original Kakashi Sensei
