The Princess Proclaims.....
"My mind went on vacation but now it's back!"
"Mom, when I grow up, I'm going to be a Princess Ballerina Fairy Mermaid Astronaut."
"Mom, I'm really sad right now. I wanted to marry Prince Eric. I want to have a real baby. I want to fall in love."
"Mom, I love learning about God and singing about God. Everyone needs to learn about God!"
"Mom, when we say I Love You to each other, it makes my heart sing!"
"Dad, I have to tell you something. Did you know when you eat, your ears wiggle?"

This went on for a while. So imagine my surprise when the other day she came to me, sat down by me and very solemly said "Mom, I am so sad." *her head bent down, clasping her hands, talking softly* I asked her why and she said Prince Eric didn't want to marry her. I told her I thought they were already married and she said "No, that was just a dream."
Now, being the quick thinker that I am, I responded. "Huh?" She said that in fact they were not married nor did they have a baby. But "Mom, I'm really sad right now. I wanted to marry Prince Eric. I want to have a real baby. I want to fall in love."
Again, my quick thinking provided this gem "Marriage isn't all it's cracked up to be."
Not to be detered by my sage wisdom, she said "I'm going to go call Eric and tell him how I feel." Off to her room she skipped, put on her Princess Dress and made "The Call." I could hear her in her bedroom, "but Eric, I LOVE YOU. I want to marry you."
A few minutes later, she comes skipping out of her room, her demeanor completely changed from five minutes before. I asked her why she was so happy and she said "I talked to Prince Eric and he said wanted to marry me....tonight! He'll be here in two minutes." Then a short minute or so later, she says "The hospital called to tell me I'm going to have a baby in a few minutes." Huh?? This is all happening to fast. My head is spinning. Before I can come up with another good piece of advice, out she comes with her baby, wrapped in a blanket. "Look mom. I have a daughter."
Why oh why can't she just be happy playing with some Lego and reading books like her brother was at this age? :o)

After searching high and low for the legs for the stand of our Charlie Brown christmas tree, we got the tree setup and decorated. One long strand of our tinsel was all tangled up and after spending
We had one of Santa's Helpers stop by and help

First thing this morning, E got up and colored a picture for her daddy. We put it in an envelope and on one side, she decorated it with stamps and flowers. On the back she wanted me to spell out for her to write "Welcome Home Daddy. I Missed You Very Much."
He won't be home until she is already in bed but I told her I would wake her up so she could see him. She asked me "So I can tell him how much I love him and missed him?" Yes E....and I know he will tell you the same.

The background/header is a shot of E in the pool....her favorite place to be next to the beach. We don't have solar heating in the pool so it will be a few more months before we get to use it again.
Wait, what is that sound I hear? Oh, yes, our friends from the North are
That's ok. When it's 5° and snow is 10" deep, and your car won't start and you feel like you will never thaw out, just stop by here and look at my blog and you should get

Can you guess where we went? I'll give you a hint. There's lots of white stuff on the ground.
No.....we were NOT in the snow. BRRRRRRRRRR.
Here's another hint. You could hear loud crashing noises.
No, we did NOT go to the speedway although it sometimes sounds like it on the main street here.
How about a photo hint. Here's E and her daddy on a walkway to where we went.
Did you guess the beach? You'd be right. We LOVE the beach. We only live a little over a mile from the ocean yet we have only been here a few times this past year. We used to live here...well not RIGHT on the beach, but just a block away. We really, really miss being close enough to just walk here anytime.
