I love, love, love Palm Sunday at our church every year. I tear up every time I see the children walk down the center aisle waiving their branches (esp now that one of mine is involved) and we have so much fun fellowshipping with our church family after the service. We do a potluck lunch, have an egg hunt, bust a pinata, and jump on inflatables. We had beautiful weather this year and it was so hot that Caroline ripped off her dress and hit the slides in her slip!
Caroline recently participated in the American Girl Fashion show at the Princess Theater. Mammy bought her the doll Kaya last year and she has been into the dolls ever since. The fashion show benefits the Junior League and were excited to be involved this year. Her great grandmother made Caroline and Kaya matching dresses and I gave them matching hair-dos and we were ready! Some pics before the show: (Our men snuck into the balcony the catch our girls and snuck back out!) The biggest girls dressed as the American Girl dolls and the girls Mary Bibb's age were dressed like the Bitty Baby dolls. Here is Mary Bibb in the show: Caroline was old enough to be a VIP which meant that she sat with me in the audience during the actual show but go to go on stage and model with her doll during intermission. We were surprised (kinda) when Caroline and Virgnia came out on stage together instead of separately but they were so darn cute. Caroline walked right on the front edge of the stage so everyone could check her out!
I am twenty-six years old, married to an incredible husband, Dan, and have the most adorable daughter in the world. She is the light of our lives and we are so thankful for her. I also have the best job in the world...I get to stay at home and play with Caroline every day!
