Snow Princess

This past weekend my beautiful daughter rode in the back of a convertible through the middle of town in the Christmas parade in 40ish* weather! Why did she do this? Because she was the Snow Princess of course! I was so excited when she told me she was nominated! I was probably more excited than most moms and only because she was such a tomboy when she was little and I never thought that I would see her in a gorgeous fancy dress with her hair and make up done! I was just so proud of her! And when she told me she won, I couldn't wait to get out and go shopping! She wanted a long white dress! Other than getting a wedding dress, there were no long white dresses to be found! There were very few long dresses in any color to be found! I looked here in Atlanta and my mom looked in VA, but then my generous mother offered to just make it! How wonderful was that?!?!?! She now has an order for a prom dress from her very satisfied granddaughter!

I just loved her dress!

I can't believe she is turning 17 in one week! Really? Am I really that old?
I keep telling her to stop looking so much older than her age because that doesn't help me at all!
But she doesn't listen!

I can't wait to see her all dressed up for prom!

Awwhhh shucks! It was nothing! I was so glad to have been able to make it for her! She was very beautiful with her lovely genuine smile riding around town as if it was always her dream to do that one day! Maybe she had dreamed of doing that but just never let us know it?!?!?!
