the one about Yertle the Turtle

It's Dr. Seuss week at Quayd's school. Today is "dress up like your favorite Dr. Seuss character" day. Quayd and I thought and thought about what to dress him up as... and since he is so slow and pokey in the morning, I thought Yertle the Turtle would be PERFECT! I thought and thought about what to do to make the costume cute... so I decided to make the turtle shell that just goes over his clothes. Yertle's body is white-ish, so we went with grey sweats and a big fluffy turtle shell. I worked on it all evening, and I have to say.... I think it turned out pretty cute!! He was so excited!
Go figure that the day he is being a Turtle, he actually jumped right out of bed and was ready in a flash!

Last year, I made Quayd and Brennen Thing 1 and Thing 2 costumes. They were so cute!!

You are such a good mom!!! I hate it when my kids have to dress up for things at school because I am not creative and can never think of anything cute. Next time I am calling you!! LOL

What a good mom you are. When Kamryn said that it was dress up as your favorite character day, I thought "do you have to dress up?". He really wanted to, so he made his own costume (and Derek's too). It was simple, but he doesn't have a good creative mom like you.
Quayd looks so cute!

I was quizzing Quayd about it... "Did your mom make that? Last night? Tail this morning?" Wow! You really are amazing. I took some cute pictures of all the kids. Look on the class blog. I will put it in his portfolio! Good job yet again Mandy!

The costume is so cute!! Matthew was a turtle for halloween one year, a bought the outfit (wasn't the cheapest costume I have ever bought), but your turtle back looks just like his did. I am so impressed and so jealouse that you just did it!! What a lucky little boy you have!
