This girl sparkles with spunk. She exudes it. She is pure sunshine inside and radiates it all over the place.

When she came to my house to play, her brothers were busy playing with Ian while she found the costume basket. I love the combinations she sported:

googly eyes + Captain America suit + Cinderella shoes
Iron Man accessories + Optimus Prime suit
Buzz Light Year wings + an indoor bike ride
Lion visor + astronaut suit

I am still kicking myself for not taking a picture of her in the . . .
Darth Vader mask + Superman suit.

Her mama claims Halle got her personality from an uncle. I know better. Her mama's a spunky gal, too, one of my close friends, a dear person who loves me with all my faults.

Thanks for a fun time, Needham family!

And if you are still with me blog friends, I'm starting plans for a Nintendo Super Mario Brothers birthday party for Ian. Ideas?
