Today we got the most exciting package in the mail from my Aunt Molly! It is a dress and bonnet my mom sewed for my (award winning!) Little House on the Prairie costume. Matilda was instantly clamoring to get into it and wore the bonnet the entire evening, even to Vons. A checker thoroughly confused her by asking if she had been to "colonial days." I just need to get her a little white apron and find a tin bucket for her lunch and she'll be totally ready to head off to school in September!
