Getting ready for her big day

Mattie got her fingernails and toenails painted for the first time today! She is a flower girl on Saturday, and she'll be going barefoot. We thought red nails that match the bridesmaid's dresses would bring out those cute hands and feet!
I must say, I thought this would be quite a chore since she does not sit still much. But it proved to be quite fun! She LOVED getting it done! She squealed with delight more than once. Of course, I had to take some pics to remember her first mani/pedicure.



Neither of them was so sure about this to begin with.




She sat so still!!




"Paint!"




A little help to speed up the drying... (and notice how the Lord has her eyes back to beautiful blue after they looked horrible from pink-eye just yesterday!)




I told you she enjoyed it!




"Look, Daddy!"




Oh! Thank you, Lord for these chubby fingers and toes...

Yes, Mattie is so cute but I have to say it is great to see your smile again. I didn't realize how much I missed it! Thank you for sharing your life online.
