Hmm, I don't think I've posted Fashion Friday pics in a while. Guess that’s what happens when you gallivant all over the place. Heh. Anyhow, TubaDad is finally home from the longest business trip in the world, and we’re all actually staying home for 4 or 5 days. Wow. So I had a few minutes to comb through neglected pics, and here are the Ro and Ree fashions from the last few weeks.
Ro (left) has been on a real orange kick lately. Here she’s wearing beach braids and her new fave shark shirt. Ree (right) still loves blue, and particularly likes this “nabee blue” give peas a chance shirt. I found both of them in the boys' sale section at Target for pennies:
Here they were all dressed up for preschool (oops, sorry, they correct me every time and say, “no mama, it’s pre-K!!”) and holding their items for sharing day. Ree on the left, and Ro (looking all sassy) on the right. Is it just me, or do they look really old in this picture? They’re killing me with this stealthy and speedy growing-up thing:
All golden tan and looking like beautiful island girls after our Hawaiian vacation. Ro left, and Ree right. We were running super late for pre-K this day (yeah yeah, what else is new?), so I grabbed the shirts and then told them to put together the rest of the outfits. Sometimes I like to do that just to see how different they end up. Yes, sometimes it IS all about amusing mama:
See, orange has been huge around here lately. Ro left, Ree right.
Playing the high-jump game with BobBob. Ro left (in a little halter top that she got from friends H2/S2 and has been DYING to wear) and Ree (also wearing a dress from H2/S2, now that I think about it) in mid-air:
Ree left and Ro right. I think this picture was from yesterday, but the girls have changed clothes so many times in the last few days that to be honest I kind of lost track. Their clothes used to go right in the hamper after wearing, but not anymore. Now their stuff gets the sniff test, and a whole bunch of it goes right back in the closet. Shhhhhh… Do you think the new daisy/initial hairclips will help the kids in their Kindergarten class? Hope so:
I think I’m all caught up now and plumb out of pictures (gasp). Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. My little bro is entering an antique speedster race with my dad this weekend, and we should get some really cool videos and pictures of the girls in a lime-green Ford speedster to share.
Thank you for all of the awesome fish recipes. Yum!! If you feel like helping with something else, I’ve got another question: The girls are graduating from pre-K in a couple of weeks and they don’t do a ceremony or anything at their school. No biggie at all, but suddenly I thought “Well shoot, that doesn’t mean WE can’t do anything!” And now we’re having a family graduation party (with honorary family members Catherine and Hannah) on July 2. So, does anyone have any fun/cheap/quick ideas, crafts, or decorations for the party? I ordered darling pink and purple gowns and caps for Ro and Ree from an online store, found a cute letter poem of the word KINDERGARTEN that the girls can draw and act out, and found instructions on how to make mortar-board party hats for the guests to wear. Ro and Ree are so excited. They’re going to do a little show that will highlight some of the new skills they’ve learned this year and have already started practicing. I’d spill the beans on the agenda, but promised Ro and Ree that I’d keep it under wraps until the big day. :-)
