Our Snow Princess....
or as I like to call her...
Carina Ballerina....


 I love these silly girls...
Aunt and Niece....
I told them to make a silly face...
they both instantly made the same face...
 
 Aunt...Mother....Daughter...
I love these girls...
I had so much fun doing this photo shoot...
the Gala was fun...seeing all the little ones...
in their party dresses...dancing...or not dancing...
some dancing with the wrong group...
some doing their own dance...
 
the dancers and their Moms worked really hard for the event...
I'm sure you recognize this sweet face...
who could resist buy raffle tickets from her????
 

these were part of the silent auction...
I thought of you Debby....
 

you probably recognize all these girls...
I am so fortunate to be around them all...
I have two nieces...
but I never get to spend time with them...
not because I don't want to...
but for some reason...which I haven't figured out...
their Mom doesn't seem to want me to spend time with them...
I do get to spend time with my other niece...
my brother and SIL want me part of her life...
so I have adopted a whole group of girls...
for my Nieces...and grand daughters....
 

just because they are not blood...
does not mean they aren't my family....
 
my beautiful Mom....
she loves them all too....

I feel fortunate to be apart of their lives...
to have them happy to see me too...
 

little L had to have surgery this morning...
all went well...
when she woke up...
she asked her Daddy to go to Chuck E. Cheese...
yep she was okay...
my tree is still not decorated...
I did get some shopping done...
lots of activities coming up this week...
one room of carpet to be laid tomorrow...
another on Wednesday...
a tea party...
a birthday lunch for a family friend...
Christmas at my Dad and Step Moms...
with the whole Gang....
lot's to do....
my new flash worked great...
the batteries lasted...
Thank you Sandra...
I packed extra in my bag just incase....

I hope the tea party is MINE!!! Remember the last tea I had and I MET and your mom for REAL??
You are a treasure and I am so sorry you have family that may not realize that - it is THEIR loss and sadly their children's as as well......

the flash worked great, the photos are really pretty. i love the ballerinas and that swan is fantastic... taking photos of your family is better than decorating a tree.
