we’ve had advance notice that Halloween this year might not be the most fun evening. It still might be. But, IF it’s as bad as some are predicting, chances are pretty good that we’ll have no power, that trees will be down, that trick-or-treating might not be happening. Thankfully my friend Bethanne pays more attention to these things than I do because she suggested we go trick-or-treating at the mall this past Saturday afternoon, just in case the girls (Kajsa and her two friends) couldn’t go trick-or-treating this Wednesday. So we did. We met at the mall, and Kajsa got to wear her “Doc McStuffins” costume, and the other girls were dressed beautifully in their “Tangled” costumes.

In case you don’t have a 4-6 year old at home, or around you much, and aren’t sure who in the world “Doc McStuffins” is… click here to see her on Disney Jr.

So here are some pictures of Kajsa in her costume. Unfortunately, it wasn’t until after we were all done trick-or-treating, and we were eating in the food court, that I realized I’d forgotten to put her special Doc McStuffins headband on! oops…

But, at least, if we’re running out of food this week, we have a candy stash!

Doc McStuffins–she even has her “Big Book of Boo Boos” that Kajsa and I worked hard on!

Kung Fu counting

19 10 2012

Kajsa’s been attending Lee Ming Chinese School, since January this year. (with a summer break) The classes meet on Sunday afternoons, so it makes for a long Sunday, but it’s great to hear her speaking some phrases and words, and even writing some of the characters. This year her teacher also happens to be a Kung Fu teacher, and in order to keep 4 and 5 year olds interested on a  Sunday afternoon, Ms. Amanda is sometimes teaching a few Kung Fu moves. Kajsa can actually count to 10 in Chinese quite well… but focusing on the Kung Fu moves at the same time might need a bit more practice. But it’s fun, nonetheless. And you can’t go wrong with the outfit.
