a weekend full of goodness

We have had the sweetest weekend. Lots of friends and little kids and a parade and a style show. How could it be any better than that?

In the mail Friday, I got two hat/scarf combos that I bought on Etsy. Ella and Emily came over for a wig and hat style show. I dragged out all my head costumery and we had a blast. Ella is quite the fashionista. The conversation over dinner was about a party we may throw next weekend to say good-bye to my hair. Ella is not the least bit concerned and knows it will grow back. Emily is bringing poems. Regis will supply the appropriate sound track. My friend, Deb, is coming to get her own head shaved. Haha! It will be a hoot.

Ella looks like a silent film star.

Gus had to be in the pictures, too.

Ella loves color!

The fedora look is good for her, too.

Ah, well. It's bound to be an adventure.

Ella and I decided that we wanted to be in the Fish House Parade this year. We didn't want to only watch it, we wanted to be in it. Too late to arrange a float or get a truck, we just wandered up to Third Street and joined the parade. You can do that in St. Peter. I picked up stray candy and Ella handed it back out to little kids in wagons and strollers who were too small to run for it. It was very sweet.

Tonight some friends are coming to take us to Sibley Park to see the holiday lights then out for some grab and a glass of wine. Nice way to end such a nice weekend.
