Over the year there were many occasions for us girls to dress up.  I sure was missing Mom's tickle trunk, but friends were very gracious in helping us out and sharing.

Holy Cross had a cultural day, obviously I chose Canada to do in my room.  My class put on a skit of a hockey game at the school assembly.  The students had fun dressing up in scarves and beanies (toques), and mitts I rounded up for the skit.  The best was locating a puck, we eventually used an ice pack shaped like a puck!

School had a dance for the students on a Friday night to raise money.  Students were asked to dress up for the theme 'Enchanted Forest'.
Your guess is as good as ours!
Jason from across the street turned 40 in October so they had a party.  The theme was the 60's & 70's.  Scott was out of town working, but that didn't stop us from venturing across the road for the party.
nice shades!

Brody's field hockey break up party was a tropical theme.  So the girls got into the theme and dressed up for the day.

The Year 3's based a unit on pirates, thus we had to have a pirate day.  We dressed as pirates and plundered the Principal's office for pieces of eight.
Ready to kill, I mean teach!

During book week at school we all dressed up as our favourite book character.

Good Witch or Bad?!?

Crazy Canadian!!

Nov. 1 was the Melbourne Cup, so at school we had a sweep for $2 or $5 bets (a pool).  We ordered in pizza for lunch and the Dunaden's Cup horse race was at 2:00.  The Americana came in first and Juke Box came in second.  The staff wore fascinators (hair thingy) for the day, but we didn't get all dressed up in frocks (fancy dresses).  Melbourne actually gets the day off for the race!

Of course we had to dress for Halloween, though it's not as big here as it is back home.  We still went out to trick or treat in our neighbourhood.  I can honestly say this was the first time I was sweating while trick or treating!  Scott & Brody stayed home and had just over 30 trick or treaters come to our door.
