Here comes the Bride

Last week we had a bunch of visitors, one was our Papa George. He insisted on buying the kids each a toy on our trip to Walmart. My son did his usual routine. Find an item, talk a lot about it, change his mind and find another item. Take this process and repeat about twenty times until he finally settles on one item. My daughter on the other hand, when she decides on something... it's set in stone. Owen was looking at some legos and she looked up at me and said, "Mommy, I want to get married!" I thought she was thinking a bride Barbie. So I told her we would go and look at the girl section while Owen and Papa George cruised the boy toys. I found a bride Barbie, but that wasn't what she was looking for. "I want to get married! I need a beautiful white dress!" She turns around and find this bride outfit in a box. I had never seen one like it before, but it was exactly what she wanted. Owen continued his routine for about 15 more minutes and Allie kept looking at other things, but NEVER wavered from her prize. She ended up getting the dress-up outfit and tried it on as soon as we got home. (This picture is the thanks to Nennie who took it with her phone.) Someday she will make a BEAUTIFUL BRIDE!

Hopefully not for 15 or 20 years....perhaps a flower girl....a bridesmaid?....and then ...a bride! Yes.....she knows what she wants while Owen analyzes features....extras....size.....color...weight....he covers the bases!!! It's an adventure...just to get a toy! Either way....they both enjoyed their prizes!
