Ah, it's book week at school again. Another excuse to dress up in fancy dress. We do enjoy putting these outfits together! Daughter No. 1 (above) knew exactly who she wanted to be straight away - Hermoine from Harry Potter. Unfortunately her hair wasn't long enough for her liking, but she looked fabulous anyway.
Daughter No. 2 changed her mind a couple of times, but in the end, since she can't keep her head out of the Potter series for long either, decided to be Ginnie Weesley. I have no idea if this is the correct spelling as I've not actually read the books. I have seen a few of the movies though and they aren't too bad. OK, number one is really good. I have a feeling the books must be so much better than the films, as usual.
So off they went with my blouses, op shop skirts and capes, Daddy's expensive dowel wands, and horrid $1 ties! And they were very pleased with themselves. There were quite a number of HP look-a-likes at school, not surprising really.
Just had a quick browse through some old photos and came across last years efforts. Gosh children change so much over a year don't they? They really do keep loosing their young look a little bit each birthday. Here we have Cinderella in reality...
Judy Moody the traveller...
and last but not least, the Cat in the Hat!
I hope they have a good day today. It's so fun for them to do special things at school, keeps it interesting. I remember those dress-up days when I was their age. My mother always found or made something amazing for us. This is what we remember in life, the really fun times.
Well it's just started bucketing down outside so I think I may just stay put this morning. Probably should do a spot of cleaning, or sort out the masses of piles of junk in the hall. I'm not too good at getting rid of things we no longer need. I can sort out the rooms fine, but when it actually comes time to deal with the piles, I freek out.
Ok, see you all later!
