Friday Show and Tell...The Day I Met "A Queen"!

Hi, everyone!
Today being Friday Show and Tell over at Kelli's, I have decided to share with you an exciting experience I had when I was four years old...the day I met "A Queen"! Okay, so she wasn't exactly a queen, but hey, when you're little, any lady wearing a silver tiara MUST be a queen!
Anyway, at that time, my sister and I were enrolled in the private school where our mom taught at the time (Mom and Dad began homeschooling us after pre-K and kindergarten) when one day, the exciting news came that Miss Georgia was going to visit our classroom!! :) Naturally, we were all thrilled and awaited her arrival with as much patience as a class of four-year olds can muster.
When she finally DID arrive (not in a horse drawn carriage, sadly), she certainly looked like a queen...wearing a sparkling silver tiara and a beautiful white dress! Well, there I was, minding my own business, when I heard Miss Georgia say of my twin sister and I, "Oh, they look so much like me when I was their age." Oh, REALLY?? ;) And then, someone suggested that we have a picture taken of the three of us. Naturally, I was extremely excited but managed to act composed and smile my sweetest smile for the camera...Yup, that calm little girl who looks like she has her picture made with Miss Georgia every day is me...NOT. No, that happens to be my sister, Erin...I'm the one with the hunched shoulders and the cheesy grin! :( A once in a lifetime picture and I managed to look kinda, okay, REALLY goofy! ;) I guess the excitement was a li'l too much for me to handle. "D
Well, I still am glad that we have that was a special day that I'll never forget! :)
Hope you have a great day and thanks for looking!
