Wednesdaily: Tis the season for festive dinosaur skeletons...

Only bummer? My white paint pen has bit the dust! I've ordered another several, but they may not be here until next week. I am weeping. And also wondering what hot orange dinosaur skeletons would be like...

I got words written this morning during preschool, and also went to the second hand store and bought costume components for Guppy's Halloween costume. She's decided to be Astrid, from How to Train Your Dragon. So I found a striped sleeveless shirt, a pair of socks to cut up for arm warmers, a discount two-edged axe, and a skull necklace to take apart and use as accents. I was thwarted in my attempt to get spike strips for the skirt, so settled on a simple tiered skirt that I think she will wear anyway - she'll wear my belt with it. I am shockingly out of silver duct tape (I have black, blue, orange, and Batman, but no silver), so I will need to get some to make the shoulder guards. Photos to follow once it's all put together.

Not surprisingly, she loves her axe, and is begging me right now to go outside and play dragon with her.

Which I shall now do.
