my little wiggies

when we moved into grandma's house in october, the girls found some very fun things to play with. in the girls bedroom, much to mitch's dislike, there was a makeup table with actual makeup, costume jewelry, fancy brush and mirror. the makeup made a quick disappearing act within the first couple days, but everything else pretty much was left for the girls to play with.

 

the one item that the girls found in their bedroom that continues to be played with is a wig.

 

today while nani was at school kale'a and kawena got it out and started fighting over it. so, of course, i got the trusty timer out (that was the best invention for a mother with children who fight over toys) and they each were able to play with it in 3 minute increments.

 

the timer on my watch is a miracle worker, let me tell you! i love that thing! it seriously has turned a screaming fit into peaceful play many a time!

 

but i digress...

 

as they took turns wearing the wig i had to grab my camera! look at how cute these two are as short reddish blondies!

when kawena saw this picture she screamed in her high, squeally voice "look! that sa-illy (silly) me!"

doesn't kale'a look totally different and so much older?? and kinda cute?

 

as cute as they are in the wig, i sure like their dark hair much better!  what do you think?!

My mom had a "grandma" wig that we would want to wear. I know for a fact we didn't look anywhere as cute as your girls look in their wig.

Are those PINK highlights in that wig? That really is incredibly cute! But I have to agree, I like their dark hair much better. It's so fun to be a girl and dress up! They have such beautiful little faces!

Cute Cute Pictures!

My grandma totally had a couple of wigs we used to play with. I loved playing with them and dressing in her high heels and purses...

Oh, how I remember you and your timer!

The wig look is cute. It really does make them look different! Of coure their dark is the best though.

The timer is genius...I have no idea why I have never thought of that.

She looks way different, but still just as cute.

the dark suits them better, but i don't think your girls could be anything other than adorable.

i used to love trying on my grandma's old jewelry and nightgowns for dress up. it looks like your girls are enjoying dress up as well. glad you got out the camera.

So fun! My mom used to have wigs for "not gonna wash my hair days" and my sister and I used to play with them-good times! They are so cute!
