Playing Princess

Life has been so busy these past couple of weeks. I had to travel to Vegas to spend time with my mother in the hospital. She broke her hip, had surgery and then went through a week of rehabilitation in the hospital. They got her up and walking and she is now back at her home.

I felt strange not taking any pictures in almost two weeks. Sure, I had some evening time after work, but the motivation wasn't there and we have had a lot of doctor appointments with Chloe and me. Chloe had to have vaccinations and bloodwork so that she could enter Kindergarten next year. I just needed an annual exam.

This weekend, it was Dad's turn to leave town. He had business a few hours away, so I had time to relax at home with just the girls. I wanted to get the camera back out, so I told the girls they could dress up in their princess dresses (no arm-twisting required there) if they would let me take their pictures.

Here are some of the pictures from today.

Your photography skills are amazing! The girls are so pretty. Maddy saw the first picture and said "I want to be a princess with earrings!"

We'll have to all get together and have a big dressup party!
