We thought it fitting for Millie to be Alice for Halloween since the story originated and was written in Oxford. The "real" Alice, Alice Liddell, was the daughter of the Dean of Oxford's "Christ Church" where Lutwidge Dodgson was a lecturer. Dodgson is the author of Alice In Wonderland, but he changed his name to Lewis Carroll for it's publication. It's told that Dodgson based his many stores around the people and places that surrounded him. Including the Original Sheep Shop (Alice goes there in the book and finds a sheep working the counter) to the famous Oxford Dodo and Alice herself. We had a great Halloween walking the city and visiting a few of these historical places. It was pretty cool to see a stuffed Dodo bird! Everyone we walked by had to stop and tell us how cute Millie was and Millie had to tell everyone her Nana made her costume. Thanks Nancy!

It was cool to see the Dodo but I definitely didn't mean to make this picture GIANT. Oh well.
