even with phia singing the hook of every annie song, my children did not remember the valuable lesson that one should smile while their mother is taking halloween pictures because it's what you wear from ear to ear, and not from head to toe that matters. with the curly top and constant urge to break into song and dance, phia turned out to be a convincing blond version of annie, and while it may be a stretch, i thought that ori was a sharp little daddy warbucks. it is more than likely my last year to dress him in the costume of my choice, and i doubt ori would have wanted to walk around in his sister's old costume.
and isn't he just the most dapper toddler? i know that daddy warbucks is supposed to be bald, but i could not rationalize shaving his head for just one night. i am proud of his little suit, which i threw together in about an hour. by the end of the night ori looked like the guy who partied a little too hard at a wedding reception.
