Teeny edit: Hey Pamela!! I have not been able to leave a comment on your blog for awhile. I keep getting some goofy pop up blocked icons for some reason! I just wanted you to know I AM visiting! Oh, and I LOVED your new Salt and Pepper shakers! *giggle*
...what a difference a year makes! Of course, these photos made Daddy a bit misty eyed. Uh huh. Our little girl is growing up and we have the images to prove it!
Posing in front of Victoria's Secret in 2007...all of that pink for a confirmed pinkaholic!
And today. Wow huh? Visiting Santa Claus in 2007...
And yes, this is the same Santa Claus. We have visited him for 3 years straight and Grace is convinced he IS real. In her words, "He might not be THE Santa but he is a really important helper for sure!" Now for all of you naysayers (like my Mom!) who think Grace is just pulling our leg about *believing*, well, here it is in HER words. Ahem...her BFF, who still greatly believes, was chatting with our Grace over the weekend. Her Mom over heard this conversation....
BFF: "Can you believe that some kids in our class think it is the parents who put out all that stuff on Christmas Eve?"
Grace: "No way! I KNOW it has to be Santa 'cause my dad would never spend THAT much on me all at once!"
Hmmm....let me think about this. So Santa is getting ALL the credit for being such a great guy. Whoa.
Oh well...I just know that *I* still believe. And yes. I AM a big kid. A REALLY big kid thank you very much.
Love and hugs,
