Princess Tea

I took Ella Grace to the sweetest little Princess Tea today. It was a benefit for Make a Wish Foundation. The girls got to wear their favorite dress, get their hair fixed and makeup done. It was so fun! She chose to go Cinderella style. =)

Getting her hair fixed. She told me she wanted it "down with curls."

Checking herself out. Her favorite part was the glitter that was sprinkled on top of her hair. It will probably take a couple of hair washings to get it all out. =)

Getting her makeup done. She got a little powder and got to choose her eyeshadow and lipstick colors. On the tray of eyeshadows were pretty pinks and purple and a glittery black. Of course, she chose the glitter black (yes, she did), but the lady was able to blend in the pink. Ha!

SO proud of her makeup!!!

Here she is with a couple of real princesses. She asked me when Mickey Mouse was coming out. Ha!

Snack time fit for a princess.

Here she is at the very end with her official princess status and crown. =)

Havin' Fun!

Just a picture for bath time the other night. Sweet, happy kidlets!!!

I'm trying really hard to "live in the moment." My blogging has taken a backseat due to this. My kids are growing SO fast, and I don't want to miss anything, but I also want to preserve our memories. It's so hard to balance.

We have been having fun in with all our day-to-day busyness.

Ella Grace is loving gymnastics! She goes once a week. Her favorites parts are the bars and the air track at the end. She is doing great pointing her toe, doing her flips, walking on the beam and ending with a perfect "super stretch."

She is so stinkin' cute in that little leotard!!!

"Super stretch"

Point those toes. =)

Evan is playing baseball with Miracle League. This is a baseball league designed specifically for individuals with disabilities. If you want to do something to put life in perspective, go to one of these games. I wanted to sit in the car and cry afterward. Not because I was sad, but because I was moved by the individuals who volunteer their time so others can play baseball. I know it is just baseball, but to these kids, it is a chance to do something they may never had been able to do had Miracle League not existed. Evan did so good! He had a ball! The weather has not cooperated with his last few games, so I'm anxious to get him back out there.

Checking it all out from Daddy's shoulders

One of my favorite pictures from the day. Evan putting his hat on Daddy.

Helping the pitcher with the baseballs. =) This was a volunteer from the Arkansas Travelers.

Daddy helping out with batting. Evan had his eyes on the ball and hit it on the first try. =)

My handsome men!
