It's just part of life

Sometimes the internet get a bad rap, you know? 

Stories about people who befriend you online only to to lure you into an alley and make a skin suit out of you. 

Or maybe that's just what I think about internet lurkers at times.

But in actuality the internet is full of people like you and me. You know, relatively normal. 

Remember that time me and some of my friends drove to Nashville to meet up with an internet friend, who I lovingly refer to as Grass? It was a fun time, and she didn't make a skin suit out of any of us, she was totally normal! And here we are two years later and I consider Katherine a friend. 

Well imagine my delight when Grass sent a Frozen bracelet in the mail to Hope. Hope was so happy about it! You know they can't even keep Frozen merchandise on the shelves? The demand is SO high for it. 

Hope has no idea who sent it to her, she just keeps telling people that "Grace" sent it to her. :-) Thank you, Katherine! 

The Frozen bracelet came just in time for a Mommy and Me tea that we had scheduled for Saturday. 

Hope was so excited about going and had been talking about it for days.

But when we got there she acted kind of reserved and quiet. Not really like Hope.

But I think she was just wanting some of her friends to show up.

Because with her friends by her side she was her spunky self.

I guess the older they get the more they will want their friends around to make them happy.

We had a really sweet time together and I told Hope I didn't want her to grow up, but she put me in my place, "mommy, that's just part of life."

While Hope and I were off playing, Pierce was playing a baseball game.

Apparently it was a great game and the team went to McDonald's afterwards to celebrate.

Pierce even got the game ball.

I'm so sad I missed it, but thankfully daddy took a few pictures for me.

When I saw these pictures I got sort of a sick feeling, I mean why they gotta be getting so big?

I guess Hope is right, it's just part of life.

Awww. I'm SO glad Hope likes the bracelet! I had no idea Frozen merch is so hard to find right now until my sister sent me a link to that article. Crazy! Glad you had fun at the tea. :-)

Yep, Hope is right although I wish she wasn't. My kids are growing like weeds. It's heartbreaking! Love all the pictures.
