How a Princess Wakes Up...

Once upon a time there were two princesses living in the same castle. The two princesses were sisters. The younger sister, Princess Cheerio LOVED her older sister, Princess Cocoa Puff. She loved her so much that she didn't like to be without her for even one second. (Princess Cocoa Puff loved Princess Cheerio too, but for the purpose of this story the younger sister's love for the older sister is more important.)

One day Princess Cheerio woke up from her beauty sleep before Princess Cocoa Puff. The King and Queen tried distracting the little princess from waking up the older princess, but it did not work. Princess Cheerio was determined to get Princess Cocoa Puff out of bed.

(This is the smile Princess Cheerio gave the Queen after waking Princess Cocoa Puff up!)

And this is how a Princess wakes up....

Side note from the Queen....Cocoa Puff slept with the crown...she did it all by herself after we closed the door. She wonders why her hair is so full of knots? ;-)

Cocoa Puff started pre-school this year. (tears)

She LOVES it! (big smile - because as sad as I am that she is one year closer to the big "K", I am thrilled that she loves school)

Being the mom that I am, I didn't get to take before school photos (of course I was running late). So, I just took after school photos!

I tried the traditional "in front of the front door" photo....didn't really work.

Cocoa Puff just wanted to pose and be silly. And I ended up getting distracted by a pretty plant.

Then I tried the artsy photo...I took it in our bedroom standing on the bed looking down. And it's cute, but doesn't show all of Cocoa Puff...*sigh*

So, I just told her to stand next to the wall...I am not crazy about the photo, but it'll do until next year. Let's not talk about next year...

She was so excited that she had homework....she couldn't wait to do it.

Of course, Cheerio wanted to do homework too! I just might change her nickname to copycat! They are too funny. (And YES...I realize her hair is covering her eyes...she will not keep a ponytail in all day...The Great Aunt Patty will be cutting it soon enough!)

I am hoping to get more posting done this week. I am so far behind. Fingers crossed!
