Gabbi Girl relating to Mini Santa

Ok, so I have been looking for all these pics on my computer forever! They were "hidden" and driving me nuts!! But, voila! I have found them. And I mean to the tunes of hundreds, so get yo little selves ready! The weekend after Thanksgiving, I volunteered, along with about 30 others to decorate a tree to be dontated by the Twin City Ballet Company for auction as a fundraiser. Wow. what a sentence! I will show my tree in a later post. It was LSU themed! Buuuutttt.... when we were just about finished with the day, I looked around for Gabbi, and couldn't find her. I got panicky. And then, I spotted her.... look closely in the picture above. ANd below!
Aha. There she was. Under the stairs. In the middle of the little Santa's workshop area, sitting smack in the middle of the elves, facing Santa, without even so much as an acknowledgement to anyone else around!
And as I looked closer, I realized what she was doing.
It seems Gabbi had an affinity for Santa's little bitty miniature glasses!
Now dangit, have you ever seen anything so cute in your life?!
I just snuck around to another angle so I could keep watching her.
She was oblivious to anyone else being around!
She would wear them a while, then try them back on Santa. It was precious!
And then I found this one.... in the middle of the pre teens! Naturally!!
More on the "Festival of Trees" tomorrow!! Mo

Those pictures of Gabbi are precious. Such a sweet and innocent moment caught on film. Love the picture of Ellie also. Her shirt is really cute.

I love the innocence of children!! Gabbi is just precious, precious, precious!!!

Just have to share this about my 3yr old dollbaby. We have a beautiful Nativity scene at retirement home near our home. I have to pass near the retirement home about 2-3x's a week. Each time Bree screams "Hey Baby Jesus" as we pass by. On Saturday, I took her to visit the Nativity scene *as we do every year*, we got out the car and the wind is really blustery and VERY COLD! I was trying to bundle her and she was busy trying to kneel down in the hay around the scenery. She picks up the hay and I tell her quickly to "not move the hay", she looks at me w/a really concerned face and back and Baby Jesus lying swaddled in a blanket and she puts the hay back down and gently touches His leg and turns to me and says "Momma, Baby Jesus legs are very cold...where is his pants?" She was gonna use the hay as a "blanket"!! :) The picture of her touching His leg *which I posted on fb* was captured on camera is indeed a Christmas classic!! I'm definitely going to have it enlarged. She has got such a loving and motherly spirit. I Thank God for her daily. I love seeing Christmas...thru the eyes of a child!!
