HAPPY BIRTHDAY DIRTY GIRL---BEFORE AND AFTER!! Here's MUD in your eye!

I haven't been posting much
since MyHero was stricken with cancer.
However,
I HAVE TO SHARE THIS.

Remember the times you got your kids
all dressed up cute for a special occasion?

AND then let them play for just a few minutes!
So cute as she examines her well-used mower
in her special little smocked dress.
AND THEN
YOU RAN TO THE BATHROOM!
When you came out of the bathroom
THIS was standing against the garage door....
And once inside
it looked like 
THIS!
Happy Birthday,
Dirty Girl!

Your Nana loves you to the moon and back!

Susie said...

Diana, We kind of expect this with boys...but the baby girl. The hardest thing is keeping kids clean once they are dressed for an occasion. Get some hugs form that sweetie. You are all in my prayers...Blessings, xoxo,Susie

Kelly said...

OMG! That is just too funny! She looks like a little doll but is definitely a toddler! I hope that her dress didn't get stained. Happy Birthday to her!

carolann said...

Oh she is too cute. Her pretty dress but who cares. She is a dolly. Giver a hugs from me and Sid for her Birthday.

Sylvia said...

Happy Birthday to your sweet,cute little angel! Hope it came clean!

Simply LKJ said...

That is hysterical!!! Keeper for sure. I grew up with three brothers so that was inevitable!!!

Jettie said...

A beauty but that dress is quite ruined, I suspect. Oh well, mom, save it and show it to her, when this happens with her own children.

AnnMarie aka Vintage Junkie aka NaNa said...

Too precious! Maybe the first indication that she is not a girly girl but a tomboy in disguise?! Either way, she is precious and will hopefully get a nice giggle if you show her that picture when she is a Momma!

Laurie said...

Oh my gosh!!!! That is hilarious!!! I love it. Happy Birthday Bright Eyes! You look just like your Nana....minus the mud. HaHa!

coffeeontheporchwithme said...

LOVE it! I was also noticing two little boys in the background. What did they manage to get up to? I believe that mud and puddles have special magnetic powers perceived only by children. -Jenn

Donna said...

She certainly must have had fun! That's the thing about a skirt or dress...you kneel down to adjust your lawnmower and the hem falls in the mud... The pictures are definitely keepers...xoxo

Celestina Marie said...

Oh she is adorable, mud and all. What a delight!! Hope she enjoyed a special 2nd birthday. Have a relaxing weekend sweet friend. xoxo
p.s. and our prayers continue!!!

Miss Kitty said...

Here's mud in Bright Eye's dress and socks and shoes! Thanks for sharing that funny photo! Hope your Hero is feeling better!

Ohhhhhh! But she is just as precious, without or with mud decorations. :-)))))

Just precious......

Mimi said...

Oh, I am loving it! That picture by the garage door is priceless! Thanks for starting my day with a good chuckle. :-)

Happy Birthday little woman.

Sarah said...

Guess you have to laugh and make lemonade out of he lemons. The photos are too cute. I"m glad you shared, Diana. Hopefully the mud washed out of that darling smocked dress and didn't leave stains.
I like Carol's statement: Adorably Dirty!

Oh no! She's still adorable. And a little mud never hurt anybody, right? Happy birthday little sweetie. I hope the dress washes up good.

Primroses Attic said...

Oh how funny. She still looks cute with the dirt. I did this to my parents as a toddler except I got in the coal bunker because I used to love eating the coal.

There is a lot of charm in your dirty girl and she is keeping you entertained in these difficult times.

SpicingUpIdaho said...

I'm sure the antics of little Anna have amused and blessed you and John's hearts! I know that this is a tough time for you all, but I have to say that I'll be chuckling for a while thinking of all the trouble little ones can get into in a blink of an eye! She is just the most precious little thing, and that picture of her angelic smile after getting caught getting all dirty is just precious! Much love and hugs to you both today! :)

racheld said...

Say that was right before the party!! I know you all got a well-needed laugh out of that. And her knees seem to be relatively clean---how'd she dip that hem so neatly? So to speak.

Been thinking of you EVERY day,

rachel, veteran of many many a before-Sunday-School muddy shoe, knees, britches legs, dress bottom, entire BEE-hind squatted into the ONE mudhole in 2000 acres. And once, I walked out to see DS2, whose head was a riot of spiky curls, with his hair on fire. glowing on the tips like one of those fiber-optic lamps, while his slightly-older brother tried to beat it out with a broom.

I think they wanted to burn the trash-barrel while we were away from home, to avoid the smoke, you see.

love you!

Kay G. said...

Dear Diana,
She is such a cute girl even if she is a dirty one! HA! Hope you know your hero and you are in my continued prayers. xx

The Polka Dot Closet said...

LOL...She is so adorable clean or dirty, I swear she could be in commercials she is soooo cute. Hope all is going well with your Hero, it is a long road, but a year from now it will all seem like a bad dream as you run around and preparing for Easter

Hugs Carol

Barbara said...

Ha ha ha. I love this to the moon and back. My girls did the same this weekend and I had to scrub the tub after they were out. Looked like 2 miners instead of grand girls had bathed in their.
