i am not really into spending a lot of money on these sorts of days and so far the girls have been happy with our efforts (last year lili won brightest dressed thanks to the gorgeous red swing coat that Linda had gifted us)
we have been lucky enough to be on the receiving end of hand me downs from family and friends and Mia's outfit has been in the dress up box for a few years now and she was very happy to wear this 101 Dalmatians type costume...
and of course hammy had to get in on the act, i had to go to work so i am not sure what she looked like when she left for day care!
here she is applying a bit more face paint... she is just so cute, sometimes i think my kids look like characters from those Dr Seuss movies.. Mia reminds me of thing 1 and thing 2 off the cat in the hat and Claudia looks like one of the characters out of Horton hears a who.
so there you have it, book week parade for 2009 over and out!
i am going to post about my sweet parcel that arrived from Vanessa at a fanciful twist over at my other blog icantsewcreations. a big thank you to Vanessa for being so sweet and adorning my walls with her art. one day i will purchase one of her canvas's!
and i am once again holding my sister to ransom, she has sent a gorgeous parcel for Claudia's birthday but i am not going to post about it until SHE UPDATES HER BLOG ~ mad cow moments
i am off to towoomba tomorrow so i will check back in with you all next week. wish me luck at my reunion and hope that everyone else has aged just as much as me :)
