It has been an emotional roller-coaster day. From a funeral for an amazing young man this morning to a celebration of imagination this evening with my girls.
My feelings are very tender right now but, I wasn’t going to cancel our celebration because I need to seize the happy moments and create and cling to them so my kids know how much I love them.
Please, Please, Please keep Sadie and her family in your prayers. It’s almost time.
I’m finally feeling like my old self – minus the extra energy. But I’m sure it’s not that far off.
So down to the happy news. The day the girls and I were waiting for finally arrived. And we finally had our Fairy Day Party!
First thing this morning, with Prince Erik’s help, I downloaded a bunch of favorite fairy songs from I-tunes and made the our very own Fairy playlist including favorites from the New Tinker Bell movie, the various Peter pan movies, Enya and much more. So throughout the day our ears feasted on fairy music. And when my feet were not dancing, my heart was.
This evening we donned our wings, fairy face paint and took our party outdoors – music and all. Hope the neighbors didn’t mind.
We read fairy books…
Danced to our heart’s content…
Built fairy houses in the garden…
Searched the grass for fairies.
And drank some
Raspberry-Lemonade Fairy Berry Punch. The setting was a bit cold and windy at first but then it settled down into a beautiful evening.
Where not even the red-neck pitchfork light pole could distract from the atmosphere.
Such an enchanting evening.
Full of magical fairy lights, music, giggling children and lots of smiles.
I am so making the a yearly tradition.
The wee ones are tuckered out and will soon be tucked in bed. I think however I’ll leave the light’s on tonight and spy through the window to see if the fairies come to enjoy them.
