The Frog Prince

(posted by Elizma)

We went to a birthday party this morning to which Liam needed to be dressed as a frog.

I don't usually make much effort for things like this, but I was tired of always being the only one who doesn't.

Leon and I spent quite a few hours last night preparing the outfit, only for Liam to cry every time we put the hat on him to measure for the elastic band. Needless to say I didn't have much hope of him wearing it to the party - or getting a photo of him with it.

But, some clever distraction techniques did it. By the time we got to the party, he was dressed in the whole outfit and didn't even notice.

Apart from the birthday girl of course, he was the star of the show!

If only he still had his hat on - this would have been the perfect frog picture!

After the kiss the prince made it to the castle

The castle Liani build out of cardboard boxes - impressive, isn't it?

(Thank you to my sister Annalize for most of the ideas. And to Leon for his help in making the hat.)

Ai, Ouma se naam "plonkie" is die beste vir die OULIKSTE paddatjie!! Hoe fraai! Het nie geweet hy het ook nog sulke "kreatiewe" ouers by die "goeie" ouers nie ;-)
