Today was Storybook Day at school and man were my girls excited!
In the third grade you move to another building and he had very high hopes of it being 'awesome' only to realize that, "it wasn't as cool as he thought it would be."
They didn't have Storybook day at the Intermediate Center.
The great thing about having Storybook day today, though, is that I got one Halloween costume crossed off my list and ... since I usually wait until the last minute to do them, I'm really pleased that I have one down at the beginning of September.
Ella had already decided that she wanted to be Anne of Green Gables after reading the novel this summer and watching the movies with me. She just fell in love with Anne, like most girls do, when we read the book. The deal was sealed after watching Anne and Gilbert on screen.
Ella LOVES the slate scene!
She can frequently be found whispering 'carrots' to all the red head toys in her room.
She even had to get William in on the action.
But I don't think he minded...
I finished this costume up (last minute) and wasn't going to do the petticoat underneath, but changed my mind around 11:00 and decided to go ahead and make it.
We did run out and get her a new pair of ruby slippers last night... because Dorothy needs her red shoes.
So, there you have it.
Anne of Green Gables and Dorothy for Storybook day.
