So what if we are not going to be here for Halloween? Ruchi has decided that she was not going to let the fact that she may not be in town, discourage her from getting a costume. Today while we were shopping for her cousins, Ruchi picked up a witch’s hat, put it on her head and walked through the entire store with the hat on her head. She looked so cute in it, that I just had to buy it for her. I was feeling sad that she may not have a costume this year, but now it looks like she might have a costume after all. She loves her new hat so much that she is wearing it all the time. I am really surprised at how excited she is about Halloween. Now I have to look for a black outfit to match her hat, and maybe even have a small pre-Halloween celebration before we leave.
