Teddy Bear Tea Party

This week has been Teddy Bear (or other stuffed friend) Week at Sofia's school. So today they had a Teddy Bear tea party. There were several stations set-up around the room such as: make-up and nail polish, bonnet making, teddy bear stuffing, teddy hospital and face painting. As well as lots of yummy snacks. I was really impressed that there were so many parents there (even lots of dads). I believe almost every child had at least one parent and I was able to introduce myself to Sofia's friend Logan's parents. We had snacks and I put make-up on Sofia and painted her toes purple. We also put a band-aid on her rabbit. She made the bonnet and the bear and then it was time for me to head back to work. Now this morning when I left her at school, she did not cry. I told her if she cried, I would not come back for the party! But of course, when it was time for me to leave the party, she started crying and wanting to go home. Oh dear, I hope this passes soon. So the new school year is off to a great start! I also learned today, no costumes at school at all for Halloween or Fall Festival. Darn. That is my favorite.

I absolutely LOVE that dress Sofia is wearing!! Where did you find it? Please don't tell me Goodwill! When she outgrows it, I want to buy it from you! We love lavender and every single one of Alise's Easter dresses have been lavender. Just a fluke...I didn't plan it, honest! Sofia is just beautiful in that dress!

A Teddy Bear Tea Party...that is THE best idea!! How neat! I need to drop a hint to Mrs. K.

No Halloween costumes? Well, what can I say? Alise goes to a Catholic school, so I don't forsee us doing any of that, either. I know they don't have a Halloween Party, but a Fall Festival instead.

I'm getting ready to order some OE. And today starts Circle of Friends at Gymboree. Check out their Halloween stuff.
