It's The Barbie Camper!!

Since December 2011, the "Barbie Camper" has been the bane of my existence...and the most sought after item for my daughter. As the months progressed after last Christmas it seemed as though all Gracie could talk about, dream about, think about, write about...was the Barbie camper.

Now, this toy is not a cheap one. In fact it was in the $100 range until it was no longer available I stores.

You would think that would be the end.

Nope. She still can't stop thinking about it.

So, my husband thought he would task his parents (Mamaw & Papaw) with the search and purchase of this elusive toy, having no idea of course that the would not only find it, but would purchase it.

Want to hear whit sounds like when a child's year long dream comes true? :)

Thomas' First Performance

It is every mommy's day of excitement and pride: her child's first pubic performance (the good kind, not the tantrum In the middle of Walmart kind).

I of course was with camera glued in hand to capture every precious moment.

He was dressed perfectly, and I even hand made him a Thanksgiving tie.

He walked in with his preschool class.

I beamed. I clicked the camera. I fought back tears.

He flashed his grin.

The music began.

All the kids sang. But one. He put his hands down his pants and looked around at everyone else on the risers like they were nuts.

That was my kid.

I am so proud.

Wanna watch?!
