A Perfect Day

It officially feels like the Christmas season is in full swing...after we attended Charlotte's ballet dance company's performance of The Nutcracker recently. Campbell and Charlotte were dressed in their finest and off we went for a fun-filled day. Our friend's Maren and Claire were beautiful little butterflies, it was fun for Charlotte to see the "older" girl's perform as we all anxiously await her first dance recital at the end of January. Campbell loved seeing Maren and Claire too, since they are all friends and classmates. After the ballet, we headed to the bookstore for hot cocoa and cookies followed by some book shopping. It was the perfect day!

Charlotte and I attended the Nutcracker Tea a few weeks ago (which is a pre-event for the ballet) at Knollwood Country Club. Tea with the Sugar Plum Fairy, Clara and the fairies was very special. A craft, raffle and pictures with the Nutcrackers was so fun!

Special days like these are priceless...they remind me how truly lucky and extraordinary it is to be a Mom, more importantly the Mom to my babies...I am beyond blessed. I used to want a sister for Charlotte, I have always longed for a sister I never had and I wanted that for her but true to God's plan he knew what our family needed and that was for our precious angel to be sandwiched between two precious boys that adore her, a Daddy that is so smitten and lives to make her every dream come true and a Mommy who holds their special relationship so close to her heart...who relishes every special moment together as "Daddy's girls" . She is truly a girly girl in every way imaginable, honestly, I could not of planned it any better, since I am as prissy as they come! So, thank you God for blessing me beyond measure. I love you Rosie Posie and hope you are feeling better soon my little sugar plum fairy!

I love how you so appreciate your family. They are lucky to have you.

Hey, what do you think about going to the Blissdom blogging conference in February? We could get some girls together and head to Nashville for the weekend. Lots of great shopping and who can't resist meeting new blogging buddies:)

Yes, I agree that girls are so precious:) I love my boy more than anything but the relationship between mother and daughter is definitely special! I have to say you are an awesome mom and your angels are blessed to have you...and yes, I believe God gives us the babies that we are supposed to have! He is a wonderful father! Have a great day:)
