Crazy Hair Day...

Crazy hair day was the theme for today. Well that or a wig or a crazy hat. Since we own no wigs or silly hats it was time to be a bit creative and do some crazy hair day style. This is all Ava would let me do to her hair, and even then she was a bit hesitant.

The front of the crazy hair-do. She had multiple ponytails in her hair.

The back view of her crazy hair-do. I don't think she will let me do this to her again next year. May have to look into a silly wig or crazy hat. She is only 4 and already is worried about what others will think. Seriously? At 4 years old? When she got home from school though she was in a much better mood and wanted to leave her hair up in the silly little pony tails. So I guess it wasn't as horrible as she imagined it would be. :)

Pajama Day...

Today was pajama day for Ava's school in celebration for Red Ribbon week. The yearly "Say No to Drugs and Alcohol" campaign. She thought it was so cool to be able to wear pj's to school. She even had some brand new Tinkerbell pajamas to wear for this special day. :)

She was loving her new Tinkerbell pajamas. All smiles this morning for me. :)

Ava with her friends before school on Pajama day. Tomorrow is wear a crazy hair, wig, or hat day. Will have to be sure to get pictures of that too. :)

My Little Painted Warriors...

My little painted warriors! Ava and Alyssa had so much fun today painting themselves and each other with washable finger paint. This little adventure started out with us simply painting on some rocks! Then in turned into this!

And this....

Alyssa's warrior face! These girls had so much fun doing this today...and I had just as much fun watching them giggle and laugh over how creative and utterly messing they were being. By the time it was over and we were pretty much out of paint, I had paint smears on my dishwasher, kitchen cabinets, refrigerator, and floor...thankfully it was washable and easy to clean up. And as for the girls they had to have a shower first to rinse off all this paint before they could actually have a bath. And they got lots of giggles in watching the water go from clear to murky, very murky as the paint was washed from their bodies and swooshed down the drain.
