Dorothy -- aka my funny mama

My mom dressed as Dorothy last year and I’ve been saving this priceless photo since. She spent days working on this costume, including painting and glittering ruby red slippers. The stuffed Toto — which is white because our family dog is white — came from her collection of stuffed animals. Don’t ask.
A couple of things:
1. Obviously my mom is a pretty good sport, and;
2. The tendency to go overboard with any opportunity to dress to a theme is apparently genetic.

Happy Halloween!
