A Shiny Suit

At Christmas, Lily wanted a "shiny suit" for gymnastics.
Santa opted for a more economical cotton version from Target,
I said, "Look! It has shiny rhinestones!"
And although she was polite about it, she said that Santa must have misunderstood her request.
Actually, Santa knew Lily had been invited to join the team and he'd be paying for a shiny team leotard soon enough.
All this to say, that when that suit finally arrived, Lily was happy.
S.U.P.E.R happy.
These photos were her request, and of course she struck all her own poses.
(and then Roman got in on the action)
My little girl in the shiny suit is something else!
Love her.

Ok, I just glanced at the first pciture, and thought that your headboard in the background was a pair of black wings to go with her shiny new suit! HA! I was thinking she was one hip super hero-fairy or something!! --Sean
