  1. I love Amelia's face when she's receiving her Frozen gown. So precious! I enjoyed this little window into your daughter's sweet personality!

  2. There was only one word that I wasn't sure what it was because I couldn't figure out the context. Is "pocet" pocket? Did you put pictures in a pocket to send to school? Oh wait, I just figured it out because she drew an arrow to the top of the page after the word pocet. I like how much she wrote!
