The Ole Glitter Fairy

Emily went to her best friend's sister's birthday party about three weeks ago.  She had a wonderful time at the party! The party was fairy themed and it was all just darling.
The children were read a story about a glitter fairy named Camilla that would make your wishes come true!  Just sprinkle some special glitter dust on your head and the fairy would come grant your wish.
Well, Emily put and entire vile of glitter on her head.  (That was fun getting out!)  She wished for a kitten.  She was convinced she would have a kitten by morning.
Next morning came and there was no kitten.
Emily has not given up.  Most every night right before she goes to bed, she writes a note for the fairy and puts it under her pillow.
Each note gets a little more desperate.
Emily has convinced Sarah Kate to start wishing.
I noticed a note in Emily's window Saturday morning.
I love this one.  I laughed so hard as I was reading it.  It is a letter for Jesus.
I have been telling Emily that the story at the party was just make believe.  She is still not convinced.  But,  we are thrilled to see that she is taking this to Jesus!

This is so PRECIOUS!! Not sure how you can say no to that last letter!
This makes me die laughing and a little sad all at the same time.

Oh Laurie, I love this precious granddaughter soo much! She can write some of the cutest notes especially about her "kitten". Loved reading them! Kay-K

How neat that she writes all these little notes. She will get a kick out of reading those some day in the future! Precious that she is not appealing to Jesus for her kitty!

I agree with Kelly -- this is funny and sad at the same time. I love how her faith is evident though.
Nancy said…
Oh my gosh, these letters are the CUTEST. What a little imagination & I love the fact she got her sister involved.

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
