My first Mother Daughter banquet

Well, wasn't my first Mother Daughter banquet.

I've celebrated six wonderful years as a Mother....

....but this was the first year I got to celebrate having a daughter.

Lola was just as excited as I was! *grin*

Before our meal, one of many "grandmas" at church snagged her for a look-see....

Then, we snapped a picture--three generations!
(I wish you were here Granny. I miss you.)

(By the way--THANK you again, Julie W., for Lola's amazing dress!
It was perfect for this special day!!)

Have I ever mentioned before how wonderful my mother is? She held the little miss for me the entire banquet, and I got to eat hot food with two hands!!

Oh, and...she has a knack for putting Lolee girl to sleep.

Really out.

Then, it was upstairs for the program and speaker.
I snapped a pic with my second favorite little girl! *love you Miss B!!*

Ahhh...the sister Lola will never have. *grin*

I tried to take a few more pictures, but Lola just kept giving me
this "would you stop with that thing, Mom? Seriously." look.

We had a wonderfully funny play....

...Lola thought it was good.
I guess.

She really did watch the ladies intently!

I only got a couple of stray glances--she was perfectly content with Grandma Jane.
And her thumb.

It was a great morning...and I'm looking forward to many more just like this!
