it's book week parade time...

yes it is that time of the year again where you spot stressed out mothers trying to create a book character out of NOTHING (all before 7am on a work day). it was a little easier this year as the theme was based around jungle animals and lili wanted to be a monkey..i trotted down to the local shop and bought 4 pairs of cheap brown stockings and voila!
attention! ignore the mess in the background
my attempt at making her look like a chimp
gosh she is pretty
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...
my Mia is so pretty and she looks even cuter as a puppy!
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 :)

What precious little creatures!! I think Mia is cuter as a puppy too. Well monkey is a tricky one, but you may want to cover her upper lips in a lot of skin color paint and define do you call the vertical line that runs from your nose to your lips? make it longer and bolder.

And don't worry I think time has done justice to all of us :D except Lord Botox has spoken, of course.

Rosey, you're girls are too gorgeous for words, I turn to mush every time I see them!
I'm with you on not spending too much on dressing up, you wouldn't believe some of the stuff kids have come dressed up in at Jess' school. As far as i'm concerned, it takes all the fun out of it if you go out and buy ready made outfits!
Love and ((hugs))
