Seeing Red: A Little Halloween Preview

"Child of the pure, unclouded brow

And dreaming eyes of wonder!
Though time be fleet and I and thou
Are half a life asunder,

Thy loving smile will surely hail
The love-gift of a fairy tale."
-- Lewis Carroll

Y'all know I am a pink girl all year round, but this week I am seeing Red.
Little Red Riding Hood, that is. And I couldn't be more delighted! After last year's fun dressing up as characters from The Wizard of Oz, it has taken nearly a year to settle on a theme all the children could agree on. At a ladies day last fall, one of the attendees shared the fun her family had dressing up as characters from the storybook classic Little Red Riding Hood. I loved the idea, and I am so excited to be going Into the Woods this year to tell this beloved story.

I made the girls' costumes and want to give you a sneak peek of this year's fun. Emma is Little Red Riding Hood, and Mary Ashley is her mother.

I am planning a special family dinner tonight and will be sharing more photos, crafts and highlights throughout the week.

We're going into the woods and out of the woods and home before dark.
