My Little Scarecrow

Today is Scarecrow Day for all the kindergarteners and Book Character Day for 1st-5th graders. It is always a mad rush in the morning but we were able to throw some clothes together and put on a little makeup and do the best we could.  Evelyn picked Ramona from the Ramona & Beezus book series. The only thing that costume requires is red rain boots, but she decided to throw on on a witches hat since Ramona dresses up like a witch for Halloween in her book.  Tonight Ramona and the Zombie Bride will hit the neighborhood. Happy Halloween!

Greta Visits Bubbaloo

                                            Other than a dimple in a cute little chin,
What's more adorable than a toothless grin?
~Azu "Betty" Espezia

It was a exciting day in our house yesterday (Oct 22).  Bubbaloo lost her very first tooth! She was so excited but nervous too, as the tooth fairy would need to be making an appearance in her room at night while she slept. Scary! Big Sis had to do her part and write a note asking questions to the fairy.  Evelyn even put $6 of her own money on Addy's bed stand as a special gift.  All went well and like clockwork, fairy Greta flew in with $5 tied with pink ribbon and sprinkled with fairy dust. She took the time to answer Big Sis's questions and left the tooth for Mommy and Daddy.
