For two months Mattie Windsor has adamantly expressed her desire to be a blue butterfly for Halloween.

Together Mattie Windsor and I shopped for a black ensemble to serve as the body of the butterfly and the perfect electric blue sequin fabric for the wings. With the addition of a couple of wire coat hangers (sorry Jed for leaving your dress shirts homeless), some pipe cleaners, two pom poms, and my trusty glue gun; I was able to assemble her costume this afternoon. Thus we were able to transform Mattie Windsor into a blue butterfly just in time to go trick-or-treating.

Happy Halloween!
