I am Dorrie!

Tonight we went to a neighborhood Halloween party.  We got candy.  Our costumes included:

Football fan (husband--he really was listening to the BYU game in one ear the entire time)

Dorrie the Witch (me)

Maskless Darth Vader (three-year-old)

Constantly Toddling Giraffe (one-year-old)

Dorrie is awesome!  She was my favorite character as a child--she showed me that girls can be witches with power to save everyone, and they don't even need matching socks!  Every book started with something close to this line: "This is Dorrie. She is a witch.  A little witch.  Her hat is always crooked and her socks never match.  She lives in a house with her mother, Cook, and her little cat Gink."
