Beeswax Play with Sunii

My brother and I decided to melt all the candles in the house and make new ones. Mom said she was happy we were recycling the candles because they were very expensive and she hated to waste them. So we made her a special candle. It took us a while to clean up. But we had a lot of fun!!!! Our sister was a little annoyed because most of the mess was on "her place" (where she sits for dinner) so we had to clean up really well.

Living My Life in Costume

I have not posted a lot lately because I've been so busy. I auditioned for the Nutcracker, the Ballet Dracula and I am a fairy at the Renassaince Festival again this year (my third year). The Renassaince Festival started last weekend so I worked for three days from 10am to 6pm every day as a fairy. Fairies have a lot of jobs. We put on shows, we give gifts to children and we sprinkle them with fairy dust. Sometimes we help the shopkeepers run errands or bring attention to their store. Last year we did a pirate-fairy battle. I am sad this year we don't have that but this year we are doing our own fairy show. Last weekend it was me, the fairy queen and her daughter doing the shows. This weekend two more fairies may join us. It is fun to work all day at the festival. My mom says she does not "know how I do it" but it is so fun. And hard work. I am happy my sister Mosi is also going to be a fairy this year. But she did not work last weekend and she is only working half days this weekend because she says she can't handle a whole day. But I can! She says she only wants to do it because she gets to sprinkle little kids with fairy dust.
