It happened one evening that we were shopping at the local Goodwill store. We had not set out to go. We were just driving by and said, "Let's stop in and see what they have."
While I was looking at some skirts, Abby wandered off because a little suitcase caught her eye. While she was over by the suitcase, she came upon a Cinderella doll.
"Oh, Mommy! She's beautiful! May I please have her?"
How could I say no?
Later, I found a Cinderella nightgown. It was a little big for her and had a small tear in it, but it was love at first sight as well.
The outfit was made complete with a crown and some Cinderella earrings - and a stunning pose!
It was a beneficial trip all the way around: Billy got a couple of shirts and I found two skirts and some pajama pants. And Abby used her new suitcase for our trip to Grandmother's house. Oh, Happy Day!
