Continuing on my journey in embracing childhood - here is another beautiful glimpse into what happens when we follow serendipity and see life through their eyes!
I had been making applesauce that day and my little ladies wanted to go out and cut some zinnias from the garden. It all started from there and ended up becoming a grand special evening.
Emily has had an imaginary daughter named Anselina for quite some time now (she always has lots of children usually somewhere between 10-20 at a time!) and she and Rachel decided that this particular day was Anselina's birthday.
They cut all sorts of flowers and berries for the table, drew pictures, got out gift bags and "wrapped" up some of their toys, wanted candle light only, put pillows on the chairs to make them extra special and wanted to sing Happy Birthday!
It was so precious to me to see all the effort that they put into this. All of the ideas were theirs and they made them happen ~ what a sweet evening ...
