Flower Girl

Olivia will be the flower girl in my friend, Amie's, wedding in August. Amie and her fiance sent her a book describing 10 great things about being a flower girl. At first, Olivia didn't really understand what was being asked of her. She just thought it was another book someone sent her as a gift. We've been reading it to her often. After several weeks, Matt and I still weren't sure if she understood. Then, the other day, she asked to put on her princess dress (she never even gives it a second look). A little while later, I was sitting on the couch reading a book and looked up when I heard her reading her flower girl book. "....at a wedding there is a wedding cake. At a wedding there is a dress. At the wedding there's..."

She is now excited about being a flower girl. Though, we haven't broken it to her that she will not be wearing the princess dress...
