Aurora was here all weekend for a long overdue visit. We hadn't spent time with her all winter and we had plans for a great weekend. We went to her cousins volleyball game, watched movies and did some crafts.
One of the movies she watched was "Frozen". I guess she has watched it at home many many times. After watching it yesterday afternoon, she said, "Let's go make a cape." I thought she said a cake. I said, ok, let's go. She promptly corrected me when I went in to the kitchen and said, "what kind of cake should we make?" "Nooooo" she said, " A Cape!" Anyway, indeed, she wanted a cape, just like Elsa's, in the movie. It was to be a long, really long cape. So long, that it cascaded down the staircase. It needed to be purple and it had to fasten around the neckline with a beautiful Jewel.
How do you think we did? Aurora was thrilled, and while sitting with me on the couch later, with her cape on, she showed me her cupped hands. She said quietly "I can feel the power coming into my hands." I'm not sure what that means but it was so cute. I guess I need to watch the movie to find out what it's all about.
