Last October our little town in Maine hosted a Fall Festival. Students decorated pumpkins which lined Main Street, clowns painted faces, and a live musician sang children’s songs on the corner.
The library even transformed into a haunted house. Since I personally financed a wing of the library with my late fees, I had to attend!
This fall festival provided the perfect opportunity to dress-up. High heels, pretty dresses, and sparkly jewels are so much fun to wear; however, a girl doesn’t always need to look like a princess when she dresses-up.
In October children everywhere transform themselves into princesses, pirates, and pixies. Last year, my kid was a little hesitant to stray from his usual jeans and t-shirt and have some fun with costumes.
Because I’m such a kind, supportive, encouraging mother, I carted him from store to store in search of the “perfect” outfit. The repressed child in me took over and suddenly I found myself…well, they say a picture is worth a thousand words and this one may be worth several thousand.
Whew! Had to break-out the Aquanet for this one.
In a small town, everybody knows who you are…especially when your husband is the local minister. Nobody recognized me that day. I can’t imagine why.
While waiting in line for face painting (not my face, my kids), a little girl thought I was so cool that she tried to fix me up with her dad…I couldn’t believe it. Where was my husband! Could he have been embarrassed to be seen with me?
Oh, there he is. Those vitamins I ordered online were amazing. I’d recommend them to all bald men.
The all American family. That’s us! I almost sent this picture on my Christmas cards.
Dressing-up is so much fun. I’m excited to debut my next costume.
