Dress up

Jack and Stella have been playing in their dress up clothes all morning. All our dress up clothes happen to be a little frilly, and fluffy, and girly. That doesn't stop Jack though. He'll dress on up in the cutest little Tinker Bell outfit and then run around the house tackling and shooting Stella, pretending he's a Star Wars character.

Jack is going to be Darth Vader for Halloween. Black sweats, a black garbage bag cape, and we got him the Darth mask to wear. Stella of course will be a princess.

A few months ago, I scored a bunch of dress up clothes from freecycle. There was lots of capes, and shimmery fabric and sequins. My favorite is the black one Jack is wearing in this bottom picture. It's a black and white leotard, with silver sequins and a wonderful big long black and white feathery tail. There are lots of days you just can't see our living room floor with all the costumes they drag out and change in and out of throughout the day.

love freecycle and especially love it when little boys are allowed to wear finger nail polish and play with the typical girlie things without any hupdeedoo about cute.

ok so what's witht he reading list, seems like there's always something there that i've enjoyed. in the heart of the sea was fascinating and wonderful read, could not put it down!!

great posts as always..

one of my favorite things to do while visiting my grandparents when i was a kid was dressing up in all the dress up clothes she had. she kept a lot of the fancy stuff that my mom and both her sisters wore when they were younger so the next generation would have them to play with. so fun!

My kids spend most days dressing up, so today has been anticlimactic for them. Avery went trick or treating sans costume today! Criminal.
