Kindy Dress Up Day! Then and now.

Today is 'P' day at Louisa's kindy, so she is very happy to be going dressed as a princess. We almost had to give up and put her in her Tinkerbelle pixie costume as I was a little bit stressed about getting it completed. A busy weekend away, parents visiting, and my dear husband deciding to take a day off (!!) meant that I was still stitching on sequins last night. I'm very happy with it apart from the collar section, but hopefully the other children won't be looking too closely. Here's a smiling Louisa photo (I originally posted the serious one instead of the smiling one by accident) And on the subject of kindy dress ups, here's me as Holly Hobbie in about 1975 at my kindy dress up. Three of us even managed to get our picture in the local paper, but geez, you think they could have chosen a smiling child - very serious, I was!
