I am so glad that I settled on the name Sunday Snapshots (plural) instead of the original Sunday Snapshot (as in just one) for this regular feature here at Thinking About Home. On days like this, I'm not sure how I would narrow all my favorites to one! One?
Bekah went to bed on the night before her birthday party with rag curls in her hair. (Does anyone remember rag curls?) This morning we untied all the rags, she put on a pretty dress (to coordinate with her party decorations, of course), and we were ready for the day.
When a dad, a mom, two sisters, one brother-in-law, three nephews, two nieces, and two grandmothers help you celebrate your birthday, it is a birthday BASH!
Vintage Barbie was the theme, so there was lots of pink and fluff and lace and glam all around.
After all the party guests had gone, Bekah requested a family badminton game in the back yard. (Actually, she has asked to play badminton for several Sundays, but this evening we acquiesced as it was her special day.)
Her dad wondered aloud if there might be anyone else who plays badminton wearing a foufy bracelet and animal print sunglasses.
I will end this post with this picture taken by Kati. This is the dress that Bekah wore on her first birthday, ten years ago. I had shown it to everyone this afternoon, and had hung it on the door knob of our school cabinet there in the kitchen, right beside the little cross stitch hanging that says "Blessings." I love the memories it evokes.
