We're going to be without a computer for the week so I'm wishing you all a Happy Halloween right now and I'll be back with pictures of us celebrating later! Adeline is going to be Kwazii from the Octonauts for Halloween (if I get the costume finished...), but she was invited to a party this weekend and had to come up with a costume from our dress-up box. Here she is as a rough-and-tough-and-ready-for-action pirate fairy!
That girl loves any costume that involves a sword, eye shadow and yelling. Vivi is going to be a princess. Is the princess born right in, perhaps? I've always wondered. Adeline never got very into princesses (although she is a new convert to the cult of Frozen) and while she enjoys dressing up and looking pretty and she's really into fancy hair lately, when it's time to play she'd always rather be fighting off dragons or rescuing animals than swooning in a tower. Vivian said a great big NO to every costume I suggested to her and was downright terrified of a few of them. But then I put the big poofy pink princess dress and a crown on her and she scooted right over to the mirror to admire herself. She patted herself and said "dress pretty" over and over again and she kept that dress on all afternoon, despite it getting in the way of her doing just about everything. She does make a very beautiful princess - I'll be sure to share some pictures soon.
Without a computer for a week...yikes...but then back with a brand new one, which I'm really looking forward to!
