Her official costume requirement is to have her hair up in a bun. I have never put anyone's hair into a bun. Especially not a bun that is supposed to look good. When I went to purchase tights, I was very glad to find a bun helper contraption that makes the job a lot easier... than with no bun-maker contraption. I was pretty proud of my work. Not bad for the first one, eh? And it only took me a few minutes.
And here are the girls ready to have their pictures taken. The make-up makes them look about 10 years older. I'm not sure how I feel about that. Bertha had make-up remover on hand and we took it off as soon as they were done. I'm sure there will be plenty of years in the future to see our daughters wearing make-up. I'm not in a hurry!
