Princess Juliet and her mother have now gone back to her kingdom, and our house no longer rings with her laughter and presence. We miss them both already and they have only been gone a few hours. What a joyous week we have had with them and MI daughter and our other princess, Sarah. It was so fun watching the two girls interact with each other. Juliet was so gentle with Sarah and Sarah could not keep her eyes off of Juliet. It was more important to Sarah to watch Juliet and her actions than eat. Sarah would crawl after Juliet wherever she went, especially when she had Sarah's toys. Juliet, of course, felt the toys were hers, since a lot of them were indeed hers when she was a baby. That didn't bother Sarah as she would go on to a different toy.
We had a birthday party for Juliet's third birthday and her great aunt Lee gave her the beautiful princess dress, which Juliet LOVED and had to wear everyday. It felt like Christmas, since Juliet had so many gifts to unwrap. Now we just have to get them in the mail and send out to her kingdom.
Now I have time to get back to my quilting, crafts and etc. Of course, I wish that I could see the OR family more often, but I feel blessed that I have seen them twice this year, and we are now looking forward to Fall and perhaps seeing them again.
