Just wanted to share some photos of the Halloween fun we've been having so far. Akemi's school had a "Literacy Parade" where kids could dress up as their favorite characters from a book. Guess they had to tie in the whole dressing up with education. Since her costume this year was not exactly educational, we looked through her books to figure out what she was going to be for the parade. She chose Trixie the Halloween Fairy from the Fairy book series she loves. Found all the accessories from Walmart, but for some reason no one had orange shirts!! We finally found one at Macy's. Thank goodness. Made her Madonna-esque skirt following the instructions on Joy of Crafting. Took two rolls of tuelle but was very easy to make! Akemi loved it! She was so excited to get dressed she woke us up at 6:00am to start getting ready! Here she is with her book... Here's some fun photos from work this year. Every year we dress up for Halloween and try to coordinate our costumes with a theme. Its fun when everyone participates! This year we went with a Disney theme. Everyone kept guessing me as a Musketeer! What the heck? Guess I don't make a very good Hook since I'm so short! Should've brought Akemi's blow up Crocodile pool toy!! Do you like my pirate face? Diane had to fix my hat because I was looking like a pimp at first! Isn't Fiona awesome??? Robyn always has the best costumes!! Have a Safe and Happy Halloween!
