A hat for a Princess..




"Oh Mom...you know I'm too old for that...
too grown to wear a Princess hat!
This birthday I am turning twenty..
the gifts and cake are really plenty!"



"I know", I said "but a mom can try...
to stop the years from flying by..."
A kiss, a hug an urging smile...
"Could you wear it for just a little while?"


"Ummm...no"
I tried...

Happy Birthday...Princess Grace!


Anyone in need of a Birthday Princess hat...never used!

Happy Birthday to your daughter! And what an adorable princess crown!

Just a little something from Judy said...

I have a small stash of things that I personally thought was a good idea,and they thought otherwise, which brought me a smile as I read this. Your daughter is beautiful, and I hope she has a very special twentieth birthday celebration.

Joy said...

Beautiful hat, I know what you mean about them growing up to fast. My son just turned 21 on the first. Hope you are having a great weekend.

Country Dreaming said...

I agree with everyone else--what a cute hat. I'd wear it and I am WAY older than your daughter!
Hope she enjoyed her day.

Always remember this special day in your heart Carrie! Such a beautiful post. (I absolutely thought of you when writing this post because of your living in CA and your sister's comment about your larger than life neighbors) I'm removing the post today though because I know I am suppose to keep my lips sealed, too!
