Alyssa decided that she wanted to be in the Peter Pan Play at school. Not only did she just want to be in the play, but she wanted a speaking part. So she had to sing a song infront of the the PTA and also recite a poem or something she memorized. Her song was "The Climb" by Miley Cyrus. And she memorized a Nursery Rhyme, One Two Three four five, Once I caught a fish alive..... She got the part of a mermaid named "Jelly". Her part is "You too Wendy, catch!" The mermaids are teasing Wendy. Alyssa will be throwing a ball at Wendy or blowing bubbles at her. She has learned 6 songs and does a dance with all the other mermaids.
Part of being a mermaid in the Peter Pan play means she needs a costume. We could have bought one at the store that had the Ariel on it, but we wanted one that was nice for Alyssa, since she has a speaking part. I bought some material and was going to make the costume with my good friend Krystal, but she had kids with RSV and she got sick (hope your getting better Krystal). So Cass and I decided that we could do it. And this is what we came up with. We make a good team! I was the sewer and Cass was the cutter. It was fun. My neighbor is going to surge the edges of the fins and it will be done. The top is a swimming suit. Alyssa will have to wear a shirt under it. She'll have hawaiian type flowers in her hair and flower necklace. I am very pleased with it, and Alyssa LOVES it!!
