About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Nerves of Steel

What's this?


There's my little one going in for her first audition. She is holding her Elizabeth doll. Anyone have a guess as to what is going on? (Note: The girls were instructed to remove their shoes if they wore flip flops or heels.)

Oh my goodness! Look at all the other little girls! They are all hoping for a part in an American Girl fashion show! Both my cuties were brave enough to get up on the stage when their name was called, pose and smile (twice) and then go to the center of the stage to answer a question. I was sweating bullets! We'll know in a few days if they are chosen...
The girls were all measured (see below) and photographed before the actual
audition...

After the audition, the girls got home and set up a Concession stand! What would you like?:)

I loved how they even put out flowers, for that special touch.:)

They made $16.40 this weekend! I was so proud of them as they did this on their own. Not only that, I was touched by the kindness of people. Did you know that every sweet customer told them to keep the change? The girls are planning on putting a portion of their profits in the offering plate at church, too. This was their own idea. I am such a proud Mommy.

Lori...that is the sweetest thing! I was on a walk last week and some cute little kids were selling lemonade. I felt so bad, I of course didn't have any money on me (I tried to trade the dog but they looked at me like I was crazy ;-) Good luck with the American Girl gig. We love AG's too...my girls would love that!

Wishing them luck with the American Girl auditions.

I love the concession stand. What a wonderful touch with the flowers. How sweet of the girls to share their money in the offering. What a blessing. Your heart must be swelling.

If I came to your girls' concession stand, I think I'd have pretzels, a tomato and a drink!

What fun!
