Favorite Storybook Character

On Wednesday, the kidlets got to dress up like their favorite storybook character for school. How fun is that? Dressing up and it's not even Halloween? We will take full advantage of that.

Piper came home and said that she wanted to be Fancy Nancy. I wasn't sure how I felt about that because it is such a popular book series I thought that a lot of little girls would want to be her. So I suggested Pippi Longstockings, hoping she would like the idea. Much to my surprise she got all excited and said yes! I knew I could gather stuff from around the house to make it work.

While we were doing homework, I ask Teague who he wanted to be and without hesitation he looked me straight in the eyes and said, "Jack." Um, what was I thinking? Of course he would want to be Jack. And, just so you know, there is a book. All I had to do was make the bow tie.

Here are the results;

Pippi Longstockings and Jack Skellington or as Teague like to introduce himself, Jack, The Pumpkin King.

And...they were the only ones in the entire school dressed as those characters....there were a lot of Fancy Nancy's!!!!!
