wonderful and magical in all the world...

Ruby got a trunk of princess dress ups from her grandpa and grammy for Christmas. Everyday over the Christmas break, she wanted to put on one of those dresses. The outfit was never complete, however, until it was accented with the princess shoes, and necklace, and bracelet, and tiara. One morning, as I was helping her insert her tiny feet into her over-sized Snow White shoes, she declared (referring to her complete outfit) "mommy, this is so wonderful and magical in all the world!"
Ever since that incident, if ever anything is great, or yummy, or beautiful, or fun, or exciting...she says it's "wonderful and magical in all the world".

Well miss princess Ruby, you're definitely one of the most wonderful and magical things that has ever happened to my world...xoxo.


And just a few pics of the kids. This was one of those perfect moments for me as I witnessed my children playing together...well, at least Ruby playing so tenderly with her baby Asher. Honestly, what could be more wonderful and magical than that...?

i miss those days when everything was 'wonderful and magical in the whole world'...

the older i get the less magical it is. that's why kids are so great... they bring you back to that mindset.

are you going to be at mutual tomorrow? i think the stake is doing basketball or something like that at our building, so if you are still in YW, i will see you there!

That is so tender to see moments like that between siblings I'm sure. I can't wait. I hope Ty is a great older brother to his little sister.

And "wonderful and magical in all the world"? Could she be any cuter?

I know everyone tells you this but I must chime in... LOVE your photos, they are so beautiful and artistic. I was wondering what kind of camera do you have? I wanted to start photographing my life and wanted my pics to come out (hopefully) as good as yours. 8)

Thank you, La Cubanita! You made my day :)

I have a Canon Rebel XTi, and just a couple of lenses (Canon EF 50mm f/1.8, and the Tamron 28-75mm) that I use interchangeably. Of course, photoshop can do wonders too :)

Hope that helps a little. Let me know if you have any more questions...I love helping people with the little I know :)

Nicole, I just love your kids! I love the way Ruby expresses herself. She is wise beyond her years. :)

Nicole... you are soooo amazing and always so creative in your writing. I loved reading up on the last few weeks of the Eagleston family life =). Your kids are sooo sweet! Thanks for meeting me today... It was fun... even if just for a minute. =) Talk to you soon!

Actually, RUBY is wonderful and magical in all the world! And, isn't it amazing how much she looks like you when you were little? She reminds me so much of you! I think she and Asher will be the kind of life-long buddies that you and Aaron have been.
