Storybook Festival

So, the Loudoun County libraries are awesome about having tons of free programs and activities for both adults and kids. They recently had the Storybook Festival. The kids were encouraged to come dressed as a prince or princess.

They had a ton of super fun activities. Face-painting, hopscotch, live music, etc. However, I think E's favorite part was looking at all the other little girls dressed in their finest princess attire. It was literally as if the Disney Store had exploded inside the library!

Here's Miss Priss with what I guess is the mascot of the library system. She just marched right up to him like we were still at Disney World.

Here she is trying to be oh-so still while the artist draws her caricature...

Unfortunately, it looked nothing like her, so I stuffed it in the top of her closet when we got home.

And here are a couple of her posing on the "royal throne"...

computer literate

So, there is a use for my old laptop, which met a rather untimely demise when I spilled an entire glass of wine on it. Eleanor's daddy fixed it right up for her complete with educational software. Here's a little video of her playing for the first time...

I was pretty impressed, but I am the momma. :)

Not sure what's up with the Photobucket videos...they used to work so well...
