Fall Chalk Board

“Fall has always been my favorite season.

The time when everything bursts with its last beauty,

as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.”

Today’s treats!

Inside the treasure chest was vanilla yogurt for some sword dippin’!  I wanted to make a little pole for “pirate fishin'” but ran out of time.  :)  Frankie was a huge fan of the fruit leather eye patch!!

On TLAP DAY you can’t just TALK like a pirate

Tell jokes like a pirate.

Laugh like a pirate.

Eat like a pirate.

And

most of importantly of all–

DANCE like a pirate!

Tooth Fairy Time!

Ohhhhh you should have heart the shrieks at the dinner table last night!

Emerson lost her VERY FIRST TOOTH!  Before bed she informed me that she was going to wake up in the middle of the night to see what the tooth fairy left her!

DSC_4696Her joy and enthusiasm just melts my heart. I was just as excited to whip her up something special as she was to lose her tooth.  I left all her goodies on top of her dollie bed.

2.  An official receipt

3.  A fabric lined glassine bag to hold the $!

4.  Fairy (dental) floss and tiny treasures

5.  A Teeny Tiny Letter (copy of my handwritten letter reduced by 75%)

6.  Fairy Dust (glitter & confetti)
