My Sunday photo – fancy dress

This week our house has literally been all about the Disney movie Moana. We’ve watched the full movie twice, a record for someone who doesn’t normally sit still long enough to watch more than 10 minutes of any other movie. The soundtrack has been listened to on repeat about 1000 times too, so much so that we now all know the words to every single song and some of them are actually pretty good.

So after watching Moana with Alba the night before, I promised I’d help make her a Moana necklace in the morning.

So the next morning we got out her bead set and made the perfect Moana necklace. She tried it on and was super chuffed with herself, which lasted for about a full 5 minutes before of course she decided she needed the full Moana outfit for maximum effect. Good job I’m artistic! So I pull out a few old scarfs and a summer skirt and I throw the look together. Which for the amount of effort we put in turned out pretty damn good if I do say so myself.

As you can see it was all worth it in the end as she’s beaming with joy. Ever since she’s been hilarious too, she gets so involved in the role play that she actually spends hours of the day pretending to be Moana and acting out the movie, before finally reassuring us – ‘It’s okay Daddy, I’m Alba now’.

She’s too cute 😀
