I'd say Gabbi's favorite princess at present would have to be Belle. Or Rapunzel. Or Belle when she was a commoner and wore the "blue dress". My girls are very clear that there is a "blue dress Belle" and a "yellow dress Belle".
Blue dress Belle is the one who reads books and ignores all of Gaston's advances!!
In the fairtytale, she is an independent thinker and does not want to go with Gaston, the town hunk. Rather, she later falls in love with the beast and debuts her yellow dress.
Meet Blue Dress Belle.
Gabbi was determined that she was going to give her Cinderella necklace to Belle.
And despite a long line of people waiting to take a picture with Belle, she was so loving and patient with my girls.
She took the necklace from Gabs and tried it on. Gabbi would NOT take no for an answer!!
She was looking at me and letting me know she was not keeping it, but I knew it was going to be hard to get it back to Gabbi. She WANTED Belle to have it!
So, Belle played the music from it and because she wore it a while, I think Gabbi Girl was satisfied.
I just sat nearby and clicked away, because it is pretty uncommon for the princesses to take so much time with one (or in this case, two) kids.
Then, she got out her book and told the girls to gather round. They sat by her, and Belle started reading and talking to them about her adventures and all the books she has read.
No pictures in the book ,but Gabbi Girl was into anything Belle was!
I think Ellie Sue was singing to her "there goes the baker with his tray like always. The same ol bread and rolls to selllll. Every morning just the same. Since the morning that she came, to that poor provencial town. Good morning, Belle........" we know it verbatim!! That's what happens when you watch the same movie about 50 times!!
And by the way that is what Blue Dress Belle sings at the opening of the song. ANyone recognize it?!
This was a sweet picture. I think I may have to frame it!! This was a sweet little perfect Disney memory. A sweet princess and two very favored and happy girls!!
So, Blue Dress Belle kindly returned Gabs's necklace and we went on our merry way. Thank you, Belle, for being the perfect princess for my girls!
