Madelyn was here yesterday. As most 2 year old girls, she is fascinated with princesses, especially Cinderella. She and Grumpy have been playing magic wands outside (with sticks) and she asked me if we could make her magic wand sparkly.

On the way home, she decided that Grumpy would really like the Ariel wand the best and she could have the pretty sparkly one....(hmmm, I thought that was the Ariel wand, but I was wrong). "Grumpy does want a

It was a good day!
