A Plea...

Maggie was getting pretty antsy for her fairies to visit her garden again. As the lady in charge I have to space out their visits. So, Mark and I've been encouraging her to make something for them or send them some kind of message to let them know how much she's missed them. She couldn't quite figure out how to do that, so earlier this week, I helped her out. She got these window crayons from a friend for her birthday, and I was saving them for the right time.  Turns out the right time is right before we're having our house powerwashed and painted (good thing too, because those things stain!).  

Anyway, we started with a message..."Dear Petunia and Marigold, Thank you so much for bringing those notes.  Please come back soon.  I miss you both!  Love, MaggieJoe".
I love how she signs everything "MaggieJoe" and that her J's look like C's.  So cute!  Almost as cute as the smiling moon she drew just above the name.

Joe got involved too.  They are more and less his fairies too. : )

And, Maggie drew the cutest self portrait.

It might not surprise you to hear that the fairies came that very night and left Maggie a letter!  She had to turn around three times and say "I Believe" and she didn't hesitate for a second.  She and Joe also worked hard on building a birds nest for a little egg the fairies left.  

Ironically enough, the day after we colored our whole window for two little garden fairies...we had a conversation about another fairy.  The kind that will come when a certain little girl loses those TWO wiggly teeth!!!  I remember when she was not quite 4 months old and those little teeth popped in...it should not surprise us so much that they are starting to wiggle...they've done their duty.  But, we just wish she would stop growing up so fast!
