Mommy is still taking things easy, so we stayed home mostly this week, and worked on our costumes for Michael’s movie.
We made our tiaras (Though Joy says they are really crowns because they fit around our whole heads!), and we are still trying to convince Mommy to make us some princess dresses. So far, she is saying, “You have enough dresses, surely you can all find something to wear,” but we are not giving up yet. We love our crowns, but every time Michael looks at us wearing them, he sighs, and scratches out more on his film script.
We helped Michael make his costume, too. (He was happier about our princess crowns after he got his helmet and sword.) He thinks the plume on his helmet makes him look very authentic. Now, if he would only finish his script, we could start having some fun practicing it…We offered to help him write it, but he says we would put in too much silly stuff, so we can’t help.
Some new people came to live at our house this week.
These are two Paola Reina kids who came all the way from Spain! We haven’t really got to know them very well, yet, because we don’t speak Spanish, and they are just learning to speak English…We tried to google translate some things to say to them, but they laughed so hard at our bad accents, we gave up. They say a lot of things in Spanish between themselves, but when they see us, they try out their English skills. They are learning pretty fast! They both need warmer clothes though, because summer is pretty much over, here. We sure hope Mommy will cave in, and make us some princess dresses before she starts making them new clothes!
This is the other new person. She is a Sasha, but she wants to change her name. She is thinking hard about what she wants to be called from now on, but has not made her decision, even though we keep giving her lots of suggestions.
We aren’t sure if she is going to stay living here with us. She might join baby Susanna for the Sasha Festival auction next year. Mommy says there is lots of time for Sasha to decide her new name and whether she wants to stay here or go to the Festival. The only thing is, as you can see, here is another person who needs some new clothes…we are starting to think we just might have to make our own princess dresses…sigh.
