Sunday Adventures in Wonderland

Never fear, my children did not attend church today in their Halloween costumes.

Last night was my second opportunity to take photos of my offspring in their Halloween costumes, and it was a bust.  Bria didn't want to go to Safehouse Trick-or-treating because it was too "little kid-ish" and none of her friends were going to be there, and Chloe was invited to another thing and made the decision to attend that instead.  In the end, the Maestro and I only took our little Alice to the dorms for trick-or-treating, but we went with friends so she wasn't at all lonely.  And, she got to hug our university mascot, too!

As far as good photos of all the children go, I realized Halloween night was probably not going to be any better with the craziness of school and homework thrown into the mix.  So I had the brilliant idea to stage some fun Halloween photos instead of doing our typical Sunday photo today.

And we had so much fun!

Meet Alice in Wonderland...

She's not really sure how she landed here, but she did find a lovely tea party.  That is, if you can call taking tea with the Mad Hatter and the March Hare "lovely."

Meet the Seven of Hearts...

She's been busy painting the roses red, hoping the Queen of Hearts won't notice all of the paint she splattered on herself in her rush to hide the white roses.

Meet the Cheshire Cat...

She is quite fond of sitting in trees giving lost little girls strange advice.  And disappearing.

Maybe her advice isn't so very strange.  May we all know where we are going and find the right roads to get us there.  And may we all have a lovely week in the process!
