When Miracles Meet...
Some of you may have already seen some of these pictures (thank you Sarah for taking some awesome ones!) or read on other blogs about our little "mini-convention" we had with some of our fellow SB families. But I hadn't posted about it yet... :) So for those of you who haven't seen it (or just want to see it again) I couldn't end our series of California posts with anything sweeter or more memorable than this particular evening.
Our handmade SB awareness necklaces from Karen! So sweet!
It was perfect.
When we walked up to the door, I tied to calm the butterflies and resist the urge to squeal like I was at a 12 year old's slumber party. When Sarah opened the door it might has well been Cinderella herself! I was speechless - or if I said words I don't remember what they were. It was stunning to be there - to see all these people in real life. These amazing children who have touched so many lives and helped me in so many ways.
I cherish them.
I can't tell you how surreal and wonderful it was - except to say it put Disneyland to shame in the magical department.
I feel like I just stared for hours at those babies whose faces I knew so well - yet was seeing for the first time. And let me tell you -
they were so, so perfect.
We ate and talked and played and TALKED!!!
My goodness there has never been so much talking - it was like we knew we only had till midnight then we'd all turn back into pumpkins!
(and pumpkins can't talk you know).
I still can't stop smiling remembering it.
I must say these two seemed rather smitten. :)
A summer romance.
Isn't there a saying about "a girl in every port?" lol.
(And Miss Maddie if you're seeing this...Jet says what happens in Cali...stays in Cali...right? lol.)
We had a little "alpha male" competition going on here.
Jet couldn't take the heat...or the growl...from his buddy Grey.
You lookin' at ME?
Oh come on you two! You're gonna be friends whether you want to or not! lol.
They'll come around eventually. :)
And as the sun set on playtime...
And the "picture taking" had reached it's limit...
We all graciously hugged our sweet hostess...
And headed home to put our sleepy littles to bed...
Sweet dreams little miracles...
You are always in mine.
