Daddy Dave needed a costume and so he's going to be the Old Guy from "UP" because he's
Only when I told Bryce who he was going to be (Russell, the Boy Scout) and who Daddy was gonna be (The
So there you have it...My Little Rapunzel & Russell from the movie "UP" (a.k.a. Scout Guy)!!!
|She looks totally thrilled and he does not! I guess next year he'll know better to pick his own costume...lesson learned...LOL!|
