An Invitation to the Ball

Both girls are shrieking and crying, and I couldn't be happier. We registered them for an event at the local park district called Cinderella's Ball. Today, the official invitations to the Ball arrived.

The girls read the envelope return addresses and started shaking. They could hardly open the envelopes. They started crying when I read the official invitation, which starts

By Order of the King and Queen
Princess Blond Twin and her escort
are cordially invited to attend
The Royal Ball

If you have or are around young girls at all, you know that an official invitation to the Royal Ball is a dream come true. So many of the Princess stories involve a Royal Ball. for the girls to be invited to one is the highlight of the year.

As soon as they calm down, we'll discuss the dresses, hair, shoes, etc. They don't know it yet, but they will be wearing their new Christmas dresses. They own sparkly, new shoes, so those will be their "glass slippers." I don't know what we'll do with their hair, but I'm sure it will involve something sparkly too.

I love this age, when princesses are real and the Ball is the highlight of your day. I just hope we can make that innocence and joy last as long as possible.
