(Except for now I have to put it away.)

My friend has this super cool make-up stuff called "Snazaroo"* and my other friend painted the girls faces with it. We used a Red Crayola marker for lipstick. (hey- you use what you've got)Maddy's hair was AWESOME (her word). We flat ironed it and then used some super dooper goo to spike it up and make it all "piecy". She thought her hair looked like Jasper from the Twilight movie, I think she looked much cuter than him. She didn't want the cheese ball plastic fangs (her words again) so we got her some "real" ones that we had to mold to her teeth. They were VERY scary.....and also plastic.
We had lots of fun, but now we're gearing up for the big actual Halloween day, and the day they dress-up at school. Good grief, Halloween is a production around here.
*If anyone is looking for a Christmas gift for us girls. Hint hint, poke poke, nudge nudge.

I (along with the other leader) put on a Daddy Daughter Date for our Activity Day girls a few weeks ago. It was pretty fun. We served chili dogs, veggies and dip and root beer floats for dinner and then they carved pumpkins together. Prizes were given. It was lots of fun but I am glad it's over. Last year for our D/D date we played "Old country song" charades. It was pretty funny trying to get all the men to act out the songs. Dads aren't as fun as they used to be. My cute Dad gave his poor bald head a rug burn acting out Tumbling Tumbleweeds when we did this at my Daddy Daughter Date about 156 years ago.
This picture was a lot cuter in person.

CRAZY HAT DAY 2009
She wore a hat that Meghan brought back for her from some crazy place she went to over the summer. Kirghistan, I think (At least that is what my spell check thinks).
Plus, also, she can wear fish hook earrings now and is overjoyed right to death. She is such a good minder, the lady at the piercing place told us to wait six months to wear fish hooks, and so she waited until exactly October the 16th to wear them.

Anyway, Maddy told Max: "Ruby is SOOO lucky to get all of my old clothes as hand me downs because I have such excellent taste. And all of my clothes are delightful."
When I asked her about her conversation with her Dad, she said: "I don't remember saying that, but it is true. My clothes are delightful!"
I couldn't help this picture. As soon as I heard her comment about fashion, I thought about this picture. It was taken when Maddy was 6. I was my Dads birthday. Maddy put wrapping paper on her feet as shoes and ribbon (I think) on her wrists as bracelets.
What a fashionista.

Before any of you go call our Bishop, he was kidding. Apparently, he had seen me and decided to play a trick. He had already paid for his grocery's when he saw me, and CAME BACK, found the beer aisle, grabbed his prop, and wandered the store until he found us so he could "casually" walk by and see what I would do.
The things some people will do for a laugh.
He's a keeper.

She said she's growing it out.
Ruby got comfy on the couch with her good buddies.
On Saturday night, while the guys were at Priesthood Conference, Aunt Sharee said "do you Hairballs want to go to the mall" (she was talking to her own two girls: Eliza and Kate) Maddy piped right up first and said "SURE". So they went. Sharee bought Mads these socks. She's worn them practically every minute since. (They are two separate pairs, I was just multi -tasking my pictures)
She said they were "breezy".
