This and that

I love the above image because she looks very regal.

Grace in toile jumper.

These are a few of my favorite pics from this week(won't be posting tomorrow). I took these of Grace on Sunday in this darling hat I bought from etsy. Here's the link to the seller. She makes beautiful crocheted hats and adds the flower with a clip so you can remove it if you like. The toile dress is handmade by Lori and is Grace's new favorite.

We've had a very busy week. Grace has learned how to ride her two wheel bike without training wheels! She's very happy about that. Another milestone for children like learning to read. I was exactly Grace's age when I learned to ride a bike. We've also been busy because we are getting ready to take these 2 on a Spring break trip to Florida to DisneyWorld in a couple of days. {'s a surprise!} I'll be back in a little over a week with lots of pics. I can't wait to see William's face when we get to the Magic Kingdom. Have a great rest of week and weekend!

Oh my -- she DOES look regal and so beautiful!

Miss M still cannot ride without training wheels and it is making her crazy! Hoping we get that mastered soon!

Do tell - when are going to see the Mouse? We are headed there next week too -- wouldn't it be fun to meet?

Have fun in DW, I look forward to reading all about it and seeing some fabulous pics!

Oh my goodness- these pictures are just lovely! Good job Grace on riding the bike! Oh that feeling of new found freedom riding a bike brings!
Have a wonderful time at the mouse house! You all will surely have some magical moments! (maggie always oohs and aahs when she sees the commercial with cinderellas castle-so a trip there for us is also on the horizon- can hardly wait)

I can't wait to see pictures of the kids at Disney.

Love this dress.


Missy said...

She is sooooo beautiful! Doesn't she just take your breath away? Don't you love those little crocheted hats? I've ordered Paige several more...much to her dismay :)

I am so jealous that you are going to meet Mickey and Minnie! I cannot WAIT to hear about it and see all the pics!

Congrats to Grace on learning how to ride her bike!!! Such an exciting thing for a child (and parent)!

Have a fabulous time, sweet friend!

These are stunning pics of Grace. Seriously, Gail, it amazes me how similar our tastes are. I love the toile dress and flower hat! And yes, she does look very regal!

Oh these are beautiful! Yea for training-wheel free bike riding!! :)
Enjoy Disney, what an incredible surprise for them!!

Enjoy Spring Break!

I just love all your pictures... What kind of camera do you have... I'm looking to get a new one... It also helps to have such a beautiful girl to take photos of :)

Have fun with the mouse!!!! We are going in October!

Jodee Leader said...

Great pictures! Have fun on your trip!

Dita said...

Regal is EXACTLY the word for Grace. She does, indeed, look regal. These pictures are just gorgeous, Gail!

Wow, two wheeler already! I remember how proud I felt when I learned around that time too. It is so liberating because for me, it was the first time I had control over something that went that FAST!

Oh, Disney is a SURPRISE?! Well, I can only imagine the faces of those two when they finally realize they are headed to The Mouse's House! I hope your camera is at the ready.....uh, duh, of COURSE it is!

Have oodles of fun!

Colleen said...

Oh my gosh have a wonderful time at Disneyworld!!! We went last year for springbreak.
We tried to teach Livi to ride a two wheeler today but no luck. She said put the training wheels back on LOL
I love these pictures and I LOVE the dress Grace has on.

Grace looks so elegant!
She is a very pretty girl.

Enjoy your vacation. Looking forward to seeing the pics when you come home.
I am hoping to visit Disney next year. Waiting for Abby to get just a bit older.

Have fun!!

Colleen said...

Your daughter is beautiful! I love the dresses made by Lori. My daughter is not too crazy about dresses though so glad I get to admire them on the blogs :)
How wonderful for her to be riding without the training wheels! We will be doing that real soon here as well. My daughter turns 6 in June.
Have a wonderful Disney trip!!! We are going in May so will love to hear all about it!
