It was a weekend of ups and downs for the little six year old in our family. And let me just say, when she's up, she's up, and when she's down, she's down! Friday night was full of excitement. Rebekah got to perform at a benefit - one with all the works! The ladies were all in black dresses, the men in tuxedos, and the most exciting of all - she got to perform on a stage!!! And not just talk, but sing too! All of her life's dreams played out in one night :) Here's her practice of her performance at home (just ignore the sick brother's sniffles in the background, and the mom trying to sing along who was not blessed with as high of a voice as her daughter!)
Then, after watching Princess Diaries 1 and 2 today, Rebekah decided that although she was still not feeling well, that she still needed to look like a princess.
Tomorrow she has to miss school, so then she'll get to see Ice Princess and Ella Enchanted:)
So, although it has been a weekend of ups and downs, I think the ups are going to be remembered much longer than the downs.
And, just for a little laugh, I will add this: tonight while Rebekah was in the bath, she said to me,"Mom, guess what part of my body I am filling with water!" Knowing she knows better than to drink the bath water, I was really stumped at this one. But she had me cracking up when I looked over and she was trying to fill her belly-button the size of a pencil eraser with water! So cute, but I won't post a pic of that one:)
