Cinderella's carriage ~

Look what I found tucked away and haven't had on the
tree for years. An adorable little Cinderella carriage
ornament.

A tiny sweet carriage that is definitely fit for a princess.

She spins and she sways To whatever song plays Without a care in the world And I'm sitting here wearing The weight of the world on my shoulders It's been a long day And there's still work to do She's pulling at me Saying "Dad, I need you There's a ball at the castle And I've been invited And I need to practice my dancing Oh, please, Daddy, please?" So I will dance with Cinderella While she is here in my arms' Cause I know something the prince never knew Oh, I will dance with Cinderella I don't want to miss even one song' Cause all too soon the clock will strike midnight And she'll be gone... She says he's a nice guy and I'd be impressed She wants to know if I approve of the dress She says, "Dad, the prom is just one week away And I need to practice my dancing. Oh, please, Daddy, please?" So I will dance with Cinderella While she is here in my arms' Cause I know something the prince never knew Oh, I will dance with Cinderella I don't want to miss even one song 'Cause all too soon the clock will strike midnight And she'll be gone. She will be gone. Well, she came home today with a ring on her hand Just glowing and telling us all they had planned She says, "Dad, the wedding's still six months away But I need to practice my dancing Oh, please, Daddy, please?" So I will dance with Cinderella While she is here in my arms 'Cause I know something the prince never knew Oh, I will dance with Cinderella I don't want to miss even one song' Cause all too soon the clock will strike midnight And she'll be gone.

Love that ornament! I am a HUGE Cinderella fan! People see my collection of Cinderella things and think that I have a little girl, but it is all mine! When I got married in June 2009, I had a few Cinderella touches here and there-I wore "glass slippers", had a Cinderella snow globe for my wedding cake topper, my husband & I danced to "So this is love" and my dad & I danced to that song by Steven Curtis Chapman. Everytime I hear it, it brings tears of joy to my eyes!

Love that song... reading it just now brought tears to my eyes....we saw Stephen Curtis Chapman perform it live and it is so touching to see the silhouette dancing behind him. ANYWAY, the ornament is so cute and I just bought it this summer at a second hand place. Can't wait to use it on the tree this year!

Precious ornament and I too love that song. Our darling Cinderella just turned is all grown up now and on her own, how I wish she were here to dance on her daddy's toes! Beautiful sentiment. Happy Monday!

So sweet! I am not familiar with the song but I am going to check it out. It brought tears to my eyes. Perfect combination with your adorable little Cinderella coach ornament.

I <3 that song. My heart still aches for that family. At the same time, it gives me warm, fuzzy feelings that dad says he thinks of me every time he hears it. Every girl needs to hear that :) Love you mom!
