After the ballet
Last weekend I took Anna and a friend to see OBT perform The Sleeping Beauty. If I'd had my act together, I would be showing you photos of them before the ballet sipping fancy cocoa in the grand lounge at The Heathman Hotel, our favorite before-show ritual. We pretended it was our palace, I the queen and they my lovely princesses. But I am out of blogging practice, and I forgot my camera. It wasn't until after the ballet that I thought to whip out my iPhone and snap some pictures of these Beauties.

Best. thing. ever.
My amazing fashionista friend, Ami (mentioned here, here, and here), gave Anna this book as a going away gift (Ami was going away, not Anna) a few weeks ago. Anna immediately proclaimed her love for the book, and later for Ami.
Rosie Flo's Coloring Book is full of images of fabulous outfits: you add the head, hands, and feet. This little book kept Anna busy for about 4 days straight, and she keeps coming back to it. Paired with my Berol Prismacolors, left over from my art school days, it's a match made in heaven.
I love little things that give kids a jumping off point for their own creativity. Thanks, Ami, and bon voyage.
One an unrelated note, we're off to Florida (again) for a visit with the family (yet another excuse to delve deep into the genealogy stuff). Next post will likely be from more tropical climes.
