As you probably remember from last year on we tend to go all out when it comes to the fun dress up days at school. Last year we celebrated Dr. Seuss’ Birthday week with different outfits matching some of his classic children’s books.
This week, the kids’ school is celebrating Red Ribbon Week with different dress up days. The first day was Crazy sock day…however that was also picture day so the Taff kids sat that one out. Tuesday was wear your favorite boots, so we wore boots… which is really an everyday event for us. ALL 6 of us have boots and wear them a lot.
Then Wednesday was the funnest of all. Do your hair, not drugs! Crazy Hair day. While I had so many options going through my head, I had to remember my daughter has the finest thinnest hair of all creatures roaming this earth. I knew it would take a lot of work to get her hair all crazy. Then there are the boys. Who have short hair, what do you do for that besides the good old color hair spray?
Well, my son always wears camo and is obsessed with all things military, so we went with that. I sprayed his hair grass green, and we put in Army men. (we cut off any weapons they had in their hands, and hot glued them to bobby pins)
And, here is Madi. A lot of hair gel, more hairspray, and teasing.
