As mentioned before, Ree and Ro are going to be fairies for Halloween. They picked out their costumes a looooong time ago, so I thought we were just going to coast lazily into the holiday, not even having to think about costumes this month. I should have known we weren’t done. Since they got the outfits early, they just keep finding new squeal-worthy accessories each week. The latest additions are these purple and pink wigs, which are actually super cute. (I’m particularly partial to the purple one, and just grin like a fool when she wears it.)
Oh well, they’ve got dresses, wings, wands, fairy treat buckets, and flower crowns. There’s nothing else they could possibly add, right?
If you’re wondering what happened to Ree’s neon yellow cast, it was removed last week, and now she just wears the black splint day and night for one week, then daytime only for the second week, and then “anytime you’re expecting rough play” for the third week. The splint is nice because we can take it off to wash her hand, take a bath, or go swimming. So (at least for now) it doesn’t REEK like the casts did.
They’re wearing the ubercute Halloween capri pants our friend Dawn made last year. I didn’t think the girls looked very different than the last time they wore them, but then I went back at found last year’s pic:
Oh. Yeah. :-)
Update on the house(s): The big news is that we’re closing escrow on the new house in about a week and have a buyer and are in contract to sell our current house (can I get a woooohoooooo?!). We’ll be doing some painting and construction (we’re changing the small kids’ room into “the twin palace” by making it bigger and adding a walk-in closet – more details and pics later) and plan to move into the new house the week of October 25. Close-of-escrow on our current house is slated for Halloween.
