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.

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.
