Last week we had a rare treat - we got Charles all to ourselves! July 24th is a state holiday, so Char didn't have school or work. Heidi Anne wanted to make a celebration out of it. At first she thought of doing a Tea Party with all of us and her dollies. But it's the middle of July! To hot for a tea party.
Another important part is we all got dressed up.Char got dressed up, her dollies were dressed up,and she "helped" me get on makeup (No pics-I felt like the Joker from the Dark Knight Rises). Since we were having fun I put a little blush and lip gloss on her. She felt like such a big girl. She would hold her drink up with her pinkie finger pointing out. She said she watched an Angelina Ballerina episode where Angelina went to a fancy tea party. So Heidi Anne "taught" us the rules for a proper tea party.
Here's Heidi Anne in a dress that I up-cycled. She's outgrown all her clothing and we just can't afford any new clothes (not even at a thrift store price). Yeap, funding is tight. But with this dress I added some pink lace I found, let some of the side hems out, and she added the leggings to the outfit all by herself. It's become one of her favorite things to ware.
PS-If anyone out there can help me with a refresher lesson on sewing I have some fabric I can turn into dresses for her before she starts Kindergarten next month.
