You might, like me, be asking, "Isn't it a little early for a Halloween party?"
Why yes, it is.
Which is why I cannot figure, for the life of me, WHY, at least four times a day Ellie asks about a Halloween party.
The first time she brought it up, I was just amazed that she could say the word, much less know what it was. Then she kept saying, "Halloween party??" and finally I told her it wasn't time for one yet. She said, "Ooooohhhh." Then she wanted to know about a costume. Well, yes, we do have some. We went upstairs and looked at the Tinkerbell one, the Barney one and the Elmo one. She put on the Tinkerbell one and wore it around for a while.
I'm just amazed by her every day -- at how much she picks up on and how quickly she understands things. I suppose by the time a real Halloween party rolls around I will be fully exhausted with telling her, "It's not for a while yet." But we'll get some great dress up pictures between now and then.
