Today was Book Character Day at school. I simply recycled Preston's costume from last year's Book Character Day and he still looked just as cute. Plus, it fit!
Preston dressed up as Charlie Brown. I made the black zig zag out of felt and glued it on (I don't sew) a yellow shirt I got from Michael's. I paired it with black shorts and brown shoes just like Charlie Brown. At school, each class had a costume parade and they were judged. Preston won a certificate for Most Accurate Costume! Yay! (I think he won that last year too)
I did some more recycling with my outfit. Last year, I dressed as Ramona Quimby. This year I dressed up as Fern from Charlotte's Web. It was pretty much the same outfit except my hair was in clips last year and pulled back this year. I went to a consignment store yesterday looking for a stuffed pig to be my Wilbur. I found one at the first store that I went to. As I got ready to pay ($1), a gentleman in front of me saw Preston holding the pig and bought it for us. Thank you stranger! I got Kaitlyn's copy of the book and carried it and the pig around with me at school. I know I didn't put much effort into it, but that's okay. I was comfortable at least.
