Halloween Raisin Bugs

Just a quick post to see if any of you can see the bugs here, since Sophie, the hubs and my sister do not seem to. I thought they were cool. We will have to wait until tomorrow to see what the other kids at preschool think about them...


P.S. I used some Wilton sparkle gel to glue the "eyes".

My Version of a Princess Costume

I wanted us all to be clowns for Halloween, but Sophie decided she wanted to be a princess. Well, above is what she gets from me; and I am all giddy about it :)
Then she said she actually wanted to be a Fairy Princess. Simple: just add wings. And she gets to wear her flower girl dress one more time. Works for me.
Happy dressing up.

Bag girl

I was just looking at these cool pictures, when Sophie saw this and said she wanted to be one too.

Not five seconds later, she came back like this:
Love it.
Oh, yeah, then I made her some holes for the eyes, so she would stop tripping over the dog!

Someone is sitting up.
Someone is dancing.
Someone is flying away.
Someone is baking pao de queijo with her sister (easiest and most awesomest recipe found here. Gluten free cheesy goodness).
Someone is going to the farm and playing with corn, cotton and pumpkins.
Hope you are enjoying your days too.

It is Almost Halloween Again

Sophie was excited checking out all of our old Halloween stash, unsuspecting that right behind her...

One Dollar Shoes + Elastic = Love!

The other day I found these awesome shoes for $1 at a yard sale, but they had no laces. Then I thought of the teachers, who would not be thrilled to have to tie them all the time. So I had a genius idea: elastic! Sophie can put them on by herself, so she loves them, and for the same reason, the teachers love them as well. Funny how even the doctor was impressed by this trick. And it is so simple! So if you want to score some points with your child and with his teachers, go and get one of these:
And in other shoes news, guess who has just started taking dance lessons...
