This and that

We've been asking Jessica to help set the table recently. Well, tonight she reached her limit. She said she didn't know why she had to set the table, since she had just set it last night. We explained that we were eating dinner again.

She then suggested that we just eat right out of the pan.

Sometimes I worry about her future career. She really likes to pretend she's a waitress. Tonight, she's walking around in her fairy costume and high heels and I adjusted her future career to cocktail waitress.

We're off to see the Wizard

Jessica had a fitting yesterday for her Dorothy costume for the Family Fun Halloween issue. We'd never been to a fitting before so we didn't know what to expect. It was pretty simple. They had her put on a white dress and then they put a blue and checked sort of dress over that:

They had only painted one shoe because they wanted to make sure the shoes were the right size. They played with the sashes (originally there were two) and made the dress a little shorter than it was originally. They had a picture of Judy Garland as Dorothy that they kept referencing.

Now for the last couple of weeks Jessica has been asking to have her hair put up in braids (or, as she says, "when you take 3 pieces and twist them"). She had them in braids yesterday. But since this is a costume, they had her put on a wig with braids. Obviously her real hair is much more beautiful:


The photographer who will be doing the actual shoot in 2 weeks was taking pictures just to get an idea of how she looked. Then the batteries in her camera died. I had my camera with me (obviously) so she used that and took some of these pictures. I emailed them to her when I got home. This is the sort of finished look:


More to come after her shoot on the 25th!
