Before I had a daughter and was stuck in the land of trucks and balls and superheroes (which is an amazing land, I'm not complaining) I would wonder if there would ever come a day when I would have a little girl to do little girl things. Like pretty dress-ups, and tea parties and princess gatherings.
And then, voila, I got the most wonderful and stubborn and beautiful and spirited little girl of all time. She grew up in the blink of an eye, and now we get to experience events like this past weekend's Tea with Belle at our Catholic high school. The high school's spring musical this year was Beauty and the Beast, so they decided to host this Tea while they had the costumes and set already in place.

|Belle and Mrs. Potts.|
|Maggie, cousins, and friends.|
|They got to decorate a cupcake!|
|And even eat it! (very un-princess like)|
|Lovely Belle posed with the girls.|
|Maggie's "sister" Madison in the middle, and another schoolmate on the left.|
|"Mom take my picture in front of the library. Wait, is that a real library?"|
|Belle reads aloud to the pretty princesses in training.|
So as much as I tend to whine about how difficult Maggie can be, I also know that I am so so blessed to have a daughter.
Girls...go get you some.
