Deer and Fox



This post dedicated to Kami, who made the dresses exactly to order, to Blake, who sent me the antlers (of course he had some antlers lying around that he could send to me), to Brett, who helped me wire the antlers to the headband and to Hazel and Ethne, who braved the freezing cold outside and still smiled and were beautiful!  My favorite thing was when Ethne was showing the fox ears (ordered from etsy) to a friend who was at our house on Sunday, and then of course we had to show her the antlers headband, and she said, "It's really cool!  But... why?"  And Brett said, "That is what I haven't been brave enough to ask."  ha ha.

(By the way, you can click the pictures and they will get bigger.)

Can’t believe it!

I can’t believe it’s only one more sleep until we leave!!  Here’s hoping I don’t forget anything important. 

And here’s a picture of the cutest little baldy ever!


Talmage had his last day of Waldspielgruppe and he decorated a little framed picture of himself.



I love how sweet and beautiful sleeping babies are.  And quiet.  I especially love that.  :)

Behold, the Avatar is reborn!


He’s the CUTEST little Aang EVER!!!


So, Wyatt’s hair was getting really really scraggly and was essentially gone on top, and only a bit on the sides.  So I buzzed him.  And then when I was lying in bed at night talking to Brett I suddenly had the best idea ever.  I told Brett that I was going to make him the Avatar, and that the kids would go crazy.  They did.  They LOOOVED it!!!  The words at the top, “Behold the Avatar reborn!” were Hazel’s, when I first revealed him.  :)  The kids all love Avatar.  A lot.


For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about, this is Aang, the Avatar:

Then Talmage wanted to be Zuko.  He’s a pretty good one, too.

Fire bending and everything.

Again, for those who aren’t familiar- this is Zuko:

And together!!

Because they are friends at the end.

Aang and Zuko :)

(Why yes, I did just spend too much time looking at pictures of Aang and Zuko.)

Then, of course, Ethne wanted to be Suki.  (Or someone else, but Suki was the easiest.)  So Hazel obligingly made her some fans, but I didn’t do face paint because I didn’t really know what Suki looks like, and Brett had the computer at work at the minute, cleaning it.

This is Suki, just so you know:

Hazel and Jethro would have loved to have been Katara and Sokka, but there’s only so much you can do in one morning.  :) 

Talmage and Wyatt had their faces that way all day, even at the store, and then after I gave Wyatt a bath and cleaned his arrow off, I brought him out and Orrin said, “Aangie?”  And I was confused for a minute and said, “Angry?  He’s not angry.”  And then Orrin said, “Aaangie!  Aaangie!”  And I realized he meant Aang- he wasn’t Aang anymore.  It was funny.
