There Must Be A Princess Around Here Somewhere

Although I have seen my grandchildren from the North recently, I was missing the ones from the South that I haven't seen for a long time.  Funny thing how the car just headed South yesterday and took me along.  Those grandkiddos - that there's some powerful stuff.

I had a delightful two hour ride, listening to a self-improvement audio tape called "The Slight Edge" by Jeff Olson.  Can't say I'm any better than I was, but at least it left me with some challenging things to ponder.  Way more than I would have now if I'd been listening to the regular junk and advertisements on the radio.

Anyway, I arrived to an empty house, but it sure looked like there must be a princess living here somewhere.  Grandson Jarrod (15) and granddaughter Ellie (2) were both off at school, but the evidence was solid.

There's a princess living here.

All the way from the princess scepter.....

to the little throne in the living room.

It wasn't long until Jarrod and his sister-who-thinks-she's-a-princess arrived home.  

Jarrod reports that he is doing well in his first year of high school, and received all A's and one B (in health, huh?) on his first report card.  In spite of being enrolled in several advanced placement classes, he still says school is often boring.  

Ellie is, well, adorable as usual.  

Today I'll be attending her preschool Thanksgiving feast with her.  She woke me up bright and early just to show me her outfit for the gala event.  

This girl loves to dress up, and her stylist always gets it right.  Today she is adorned with a turkey and all the trimmings.

I'd drive a hundred miles any day, just to hear that cute little voice calling "Hammaw!" again to wake me up, like she did this morning.

And now I'm off.  

I've got a feast to attend with Her Royal Little Highness.
