We have several sets of rabbit ears that we've collected over the years for the Billion Bunny March. Add a waistcoat and pocket watch and you're ready for Wonderland!
Grass skirt, leis and a real coconut bra... if only the weather in Ottawa could be a little more Hawaiian too.
80s Fashion Victim
I wore this outfit for a pub crawl back in university and my mom recently sent it to me when she was cleaning out my old closet. When Chris opened the package he said "ummm... there's a shirt in here that looks like the 80s threw up on it"
As Axel's birthday falls so close to Halloween, I was hoping to save a little sanity by working his Halloween costume into his party theme. He was really excited about his upcoming Rocket and Groot party, but, three-year-olds being the fickle creatures that they are, on the day of the party he insisted that he would be the Flash and nothing could convince him otherwise.
Now that Axel is getting older he has strong opinions on things, like how his party should be, which can be a little challenging for me, but on the flip side he is able to help out with the preparations which is a lot of fun.
This theme worked well for the skill levels of a preschooler since nebulas and starscapes don't need to be precise and actually look best a little messy. My little helper and I had a great time baking and decorating galaxy star sugar cookies and painting the photobooth backdrop. His pride in the projects was so heartwarming, I'm smiling just thinking of it.
The Yukon Sourdough Rendezvous wrapped up this weekend. It's a fantastic winter festival full of contests, events and people dressing up in gold-rush-inspired costumes.
The weather over the weekend was too warm for the snow sculptors' liking, but Axel and I thought it was fantastic for walking around Shipyards Park and enjoying the sights. Axel said his first word, "dog", last week and he got lots of practice pointing out all the dogs in the park.
