Loopy won the top prize every year from Kindergarten to Grade 2, we forgot (horrors!) in Grade 3 (and I -seriously - was very unhappy when I realized that we forgot what is maybe my eighth or ninth favourite day of the year).
This year we turned Loopy's hair into a giant duck. Her long hair (it falls to her elbows) was pinned into a ginormous updo and secured with 144 bobby-pins that I wired with yellow feathers. They eyes I hot glued to small clips and I fashioned her beak from craft foam.
We didn't win this year because of the wig scandal.
The best part of the day was after school. Whenever she said anything, Buddy (oh teenage brother!) said, "what's that sound, all I hear is quack, quack". We took her for ice cream and asked the server if they had anything with quackers in it. We tried to talk her into trying on giant orange sunglasses at the department store, but she was tiring of us so we went home. There's always next year.
