Awesome Idea I love your creativity and how even despite her being in a wheel chair you can help her celebrate and be like a normal kid

I love it! Despite her disabilities, the little passenger looks as though she's having lots of fun. Put together well. I like the idea of the pvc pipe. Unique idea and well done!

This by far is the best costume I have seen this year and quite possibly ever. I have no idea whereTracy found the time to make such an elaborate& awesome costume. She not only is a wife, a working mother of 2, who takes great care of her other daughter Lauren and also takes fantastic care of Lindsey who requires much more attention. Tracy is supermom, she never complains or bats an eye. That's why they deserve to win!!!

Thank you Tracy for sharing.your pride and joy with us all. Oh yea..The costume is great to!!! Lol
Keep up the amazing art work

It takes time and dedication to build and invent such awesome memories for a child. To be a wife, a mother and have a job is a lot. It takes a very special heart to involve her daughter and make her feel very speacial. I look forward to her inventions every year. I appreciate this wonderful women, who cares so deeply for her family and never runs out of batteries! Thank you Tracey
