Lookie what my wonderful friend Laura made and brought for me on my birthday this morning...warm, squishy cinnamon rolls! These are the best dang cinnamon rolls EVER (no offense, mom). H proclaimed them to be "cinnamon roll heaven." Right on, H. She even had a hard time tearing herself away to go to the primary pizza party. She said she didn't want to leave the cinnamon rolls. Weird kid, yes.
Last night was the much-anticipated Fall Festival at H & L's school. I must say that, despite my dread of taking all four kids to a school event by myself, a good time was had by all, and B even won a prize for "Most Creative Costume" in the 4 and under age group in the costume parade. This puzzled me a little, since he was one of approximately 27 other pirates there, but I was informed it was because *HE* was the cutest pirate. No argument there. Everyone LOVED L's hair, and H was a big hit, too, because she had such a great disguise. Some of the kids/adults there had a hard time recognizing her. I told her that's a
sign of a great costume, and that made her happy. L's teacher LOVED her costume, and commented on how "real" her eyes looked. I told her that I just punched her in the eyes to get a more real effect. After thinking immediately that I probably shouldn't have said that to her teacher, she shot back with, "Well, it works out because the black eyes will probably last 'til Halloween and you won't have to do her make-up twice." Way to go, Mrs. J! What an awesome Kindygarten teacher!
