More Halloween!!

Here is more of the story!!!

This year Little Lilly Polka Dot had a very hard time deciding what she wanted to be. She thought and thought and thought for days and days. She asked everyone for ideas, even Marshmallow. Finally she decided. She is going to be a………beautiful princess! But not just any ordinary beautiful princess. She is going to be a VERY MERRY princess. And when people give her candy she will skip and hop around in a circle chanting “ A very merry princess yes that’s me, hopping and skipping, look at me!” “WOW this is going to be so much fun!” Little Lilly Polka Dot said to herself! And she laughed out loud just thinking about trick or treating in this costume! “This is the best costume ever” she thought.

Halloween is Coming!!

Hi Friends. I thought that I would add an illustration or two for the Halloween story sneak peek preview!! So here goes:

Little Lilly Polka Dot loves Halloween.

Every year she wears a fun  costume.

Once she was a witch. When she went out trick or treating in this costume she would say “I’m the wicked witch of the north and I’m going to turn you into a frog!!” And then she would wave her arm and shout “1-2-3 pouf! You’re a frog”. Her friend Chippie thought that was very very funny! Hee hee hee!


 Another time she was a mermaid. When she went out trick or treating in this costume she would sing “Mermaid mermaid down by the sea, we can make music, you and me”. And then she would pretend that she was swimming through the deep blue sea. Chippie laughed and laughed when she did this. Ha ha ha!


And yet another time she was a spotted cow. When she went out trick or treating in this costume she would say  “Hula hula moo moo, I love you!” And then she would make the hula hoop circle fast around and around her waist! Chippie thought this was hilarious! Hee hee hee!

The Wickeds

Do you have "the wickeds"? With Halloween coming, it is probably easy to imagine what "the wickeds" are!  But it's not that easy, my friends. I overheard Little Lilly Polka Dot the other day telling her friend Chippie that she has "the wickeds". She explained why she had them and how she got them. I'm thinking, oh my gosh, is this a new childhood disease that I don't know about that was diagnosed by the school nurse? Nah, I thought to myself, it's just her imagination running wild- AGAIN!! And so later on in the day I asked  about her "wickeds". She tells me(and this is really good so pay attention)- "Well mommy I heard you and daddy arguing the other day and he said you were wicked. So when I argued with you the day I played with Chippie, I thought you would tell me I had the 'wickeds' too. And I think I got them from you so now you and I both have them". Well, I just about fell off my chair laughing. How cute are kids?  They always come up with a funny twist when they interpret things in their own special way. Let me know what funny stories you have about your conversations with your kids!!

Love, Wendy 
and OH YES have a happy polka dotted day!!

Words of Wisdom

Little Lilly Polka Dot wanted to share these words of wisdom before she goes to bed:

1. By helping others succeed you are ensuring your own success!

2. So what if the world wants you to be all rock and roll when you're really opera. It's your song and whoever doesn't like it can get earplugs!!

Hmmm Little Lilly Polka Dot is so WISE!!! (and cheeky!!)

Good night from my home to yours!!
