Embrace the tulle. It’s part of your heritage.

This past Friday, I asked my sister what my niece was going to be for Halloween.  Naturally, Jamie felt tremendous pressure to come up with something creative enough for our wack-a-doo family.  She asked if I had any ideas.  Balloon Boy came to mind, but I knew we couldn’t find enough aluminum foil in the short amount of time we had before the big day.  We’re talking 48 hours people.

Finally, I suggested the only thing I knew that would work under the time crunch.

Lincee:  “We could recycle my costume from last year if you are interested.”

Jamie:  “I was hoping you’d say that.”

A few snips, tucks and modifications, and we were ready for trick-or-treating.

Her face is red and splotchy because she HATED the tulle.  She pitched the biggest fit of her life when we plopped her into the bath tub.  Thank the Lord for that rubber ducky. 

My Mother and I kept telling her that if she expects to be a treasured member of this family, she better get used to tulle.  And sequins.  And fringe.  And movie musicals.  And large bows on her bald head.

Because that is who we are.  Embrace it Addison.  It’s in your blood.

Very cute…..and yet she looks miserable in that scratchy stuff! My new grandbaby is an Addison too. Addison Jane….living in far south houston area… just a few weeks old.

That is hysterical! When I saw you mention tulle I wondered if that was what the result would be – hee hee. Great idea, even though poor Addison would have preferred something else 😉

That is one completely adorable and unhappy little kid! She is precious…and will select nursing homes for each and every one of you one day. Just sayin’… make that kid happy or she gets the last laugh! Seriously though – – too cute for words! Thanks for sharing – and I’m hoping your knee is feeling better!

Can you get much cuter than that? I doubt it ” )

She is so adorable, and the fact that she looks so pouty about her unfortunate tulle situation somehow makes her even cuter!

How cute! The best part of Halloween this year was dressing up my baby 🙂

I realized this year that I want a baby…just so I can dress it up for Halloween.
