Marguerite didn't want to be anything but the same mermaid she was last year. That was a good thing, in a way - the more it is used, the more well-spent that money we paid for it turns out to be. I had been planning to make a costume for her, but she knew what she wanted. Cameron was a turtle, which meant he donned his green sleeper and I made a shell out of felt and a pillow. It looked too much like a pillow, but, at least, people could still easily tell what he was supposed to be, lol. My mom came with us this year. Good thing too because Mark forgot to load the stroller into the car.
