Two Little Girls and a Braid

Hi Knitters,
The Collector saw the cover of this catalog that came in the mailbox yesterday. We talked about how sweet and cute it was that the girls had their hair braided into one braid.

Today she called her best buddy, who is also her fairy house buddy, and the buddy ran right over to our house. She only lives through the backyard. Then the Collector found a hairbrush and then she found me. 

I braided two heads of beautiful dark chocolate and milk chocolate hair into a mega-thick and gorgeous braid.
This was the result. Aren't they cute? The Collector is on the left.
Then with their new joint braid the girls giggled and shuffled and hugged all the way over to the friend's house. To see them find such joy in something so simple was endearing.

I love little girls. 
best, susie

That is just too sweet! I love little girls, too! God blessed me with a wonderful boy though. He has long hair. I joke around with him and I tell him I'm going to send him to school with a pony tail :)

So, so sweet! I can just picture them making their way to her friends house. Oh, to be a kid again :).

And this is why I'm so happy to have a couple of girls for myself.

So very sweet.

this reminds me of things that my almost 25 year old DD did with her BFF when they were little.


The girls met when they were 4 and we had just moved into this neighborhood. Now, 21 years later, they are still BFFs and my DD had her for her maid of honor in her wedding 3 years ago.

Those J Crew models have nothing on your Collector and her friend. So cute! (Girls are sure different than the 3 boys I raised!)

I love little girls too, yummy. I can see my daughter doing this with friends.

That's so sweet. I hope my little girl finds a friend like that someday.

I really appreciate how positive and uplifting your blog always is, Susan. I can always count on you for a pick-me-up and never have to worry that I'm going to happen upon a rant or anything whiny or negative. Thank you so much!
