On chilly Sunday afternoon like today, what could be better than cuddling up with your favorite people and a few of your favorite Fairy Tale stories?
(Okay, so this book may not be a fairy tale story, but who could blame me for sneaking that cute picture into the post?)
The truth is, plenty of notable people agree that Fairy Tales are good for children, including Albert Einstein!
Yesterday the Queen of Hearts, the Sea Witch, Evil Queen, and some crazy lady with a fur coat celebrated Halloween with the good folks of Davis County at Parkstone in Station Park. The four of us delightful delightful ladies mingled with guests as they enjoyed a fantastic breakfast. After two wickedly fun hours, we are quite certain by the number of hand-be dazzled foam cutouts that were gifted to us, that the kiddos had as much fun as we did!
A few hours later, we took our ravishing foursome south for a visit to Classic Fun Skating in Sandy. In true Villian style, we took over the skating rink and tried to convince more good people to join us in our evil pursuits. Much to our dismay, however, here too we found too many good hearts, we were almost convinced to change our ways!
I had the pleasure of taking on the role of the fur-loving villain with an affinity for puppies. I loved playing with all the kids I met yesterday, but one little girl named Gabby proved to be a bit of a thief! While I thought I had convinced her to hand over her new puppies, she instead stole Miss Devillie’s heart.
After sending Gabby off to fetch the puppies, she returned to report that her aunt said the puppies were too small, but offered an Almond Joy as an alternative. Unsatisfied, I curled Gabby’s fingers back around the tempting treat with another offer. I would forgo indulging in that little bit of coco nutty heaven. . . .for the two puppies. All she had to do was take the treat back to her aunt and explain the new terms of the deal. Gabbi just laughed and began a new conversation.
“I live with my aunt because my mommy is in heaven and my daddy is in jail.”
So many things went through my mind, and my heart ached for her. I wondered how I could show this little girl what I really felt without dropping the character she’d been having so much fun with. Honestly I can’t remember what I said to her, but villain or princess, a hug is a hug and can mean more than than words sometimes.
Gabby is a little ray of sunshine, and obviously has many people who love her. She told me she is going to be a sister soon because her aunt is going to have a baby. How perfect to have such amazing people in the world like Gabby and her aunt.
And how lucky that I get to have these moments where people who would have been just strangers are now sweet memories.

This year, we added not one, but two very special elements to The Dream Celebration Stage Show.
Meet Carlie and Lilly!
These little princesses played the roles of Lizzie and Violet, two sisters who fall asleep reading a favorite story, only to have the story brought to life by their Fairy Godmother!! The did an amazing job and were there through all the long hours of rehearsal. They even practiced on their own whenever they were together! They invested their whole hearts into the show, just like the princesses that twirled around with them. They loved every minute of it and we couldn't be more proud of them.
"Now make a wish, and do as dreamers do, and all my wishes. . . will come true."
