You're our only hope!

Ever since I was a little girl, I wanted to be a princess. Not just any princess thought, I wanted to be Princess Leiah from Star Wars. I've always wanted to say, "You're our only hope." I've always wanted to shoot a lazer gun across a bridge way that won't extend, half hiding behind a wall. I've practiced saying, "Could someone get this walking carpet out of my way," just in case I was ever stuck behind a "walking carpet." I even took on the role of Leiah in elementary school recess games.

I've dreamed of the day I could have the perfect hair, the perfect dress, and those great boots, to dress like her, and I was so excited to see a little girl in a white sweat suit and sheet get-up, and little bunches of hair on either side of her head at Trick or Treat storytime. So excited that I ran out that night to get everything I needed for this:


Don't worry. I'm not going to go any farther than this. Remember, it's Halloween, the time when everyone should be what they've always dreamed.

Nice! Sadly, the first time I saw that movie (or maybe it was the only time I remember) was two years ago. Dave and I rented all three and I was enthralled. You did great on the costume & the hair!! We are excited to see you next month!!

You mean that's YOU in the picture?! You seriously look like...uh.. whoever played Leia. (I'm with Chels... I only saw it for the first time a couple of years ago.)

Thanks for the CD, too! You're such a doll :) Are you going to be in IF for T-day?

Oh, and you've been tagged.
