Beauty Salon

So here we are the day after Halloween and my kids are a little jacked up on Mt Dew so to speak :o). So after a lazy morning of eating a nutritious breakfast followed by candy, an apple followed by candy, a sandwich followed by candy. I think they have me figured out, I told them it was time for the TV to go off so they could do something besides veg out on the couch.

We discussed our choices on this rainy Oregon day and decided on Hair and Makeup, apparently they didn't get enough of that yesterday. So out come the glitter, makeup kits from Birthdays past, brushes, barrettes, ponytail holders, clips, you get the idea. We used the cape from Molly's vampire costume as a hair dresser cape and they went to work on each other. Ponytails and glitter flying and now I have two beauty queens that are listening to music and dancing.

So for your next rainy day try setting up a little beauty salon and have some fun.

Just a word of warning... If you plan to go or take your kids anywhere on this day keep in mind that you are all going to look like well not so presentable to go out in public so make sure you have enough time to redo all of you before any public appearances. Seeing your hubbys high school girlfriend at Walmart when you just got a makeover by your 6 yr old will be a memorable experience if you know what I mean.
