Pageant Day!!!

Yesterday was Kaylyn's school beauty pageant. As always, she loved dressing up and being pampered for the day. She did very well and ended up with 1st alternate and most photogenic. I'm so proud of her for getting up on stage in front of all those people, which is something I could never do!

Chloe also got to be in the pageant this year. It was her very first pageant and as you can see, she was less than thrilled! She did very well though and walked out on the runway all by herself!

I tried all day to get a good picture of her in her pretty dress, but she was having none of it. As you can see in the pic above, she's sporting her "Get this dress off of me and get that camera out of my face, I'm sick of pageant day!" look.

I attempted to get a picture of Kaylyn and Chloe in their dresses, and this was the best I could get. Chloe had hit complete melt down, and there was no turning back.

T-R-O-U-B-L-E.......Chloe, Kaylyn, and Shaylan

10 Years.....

Has it really been 10 years....
...since I first heard that sweet cry???

Have I really been watching her grow for 10 years???

Cherishing every minute of it!

I can't believe my baby girl is 10 years old today! Yes, she's in the double-digits, and PROUD of it!! Happy Birthday Kaylyn!!!

It's Party Time!!

This past Friday night my nice, quiet home was invaded by....dum-da-dum-dum....six 9 and 10 year old giggling, squealing, screaming little girls. We had Kaylyn's 10th birthday party and of course she wanted a slumber party. We had the party a week early because next weekend, her actual birthday, is pageant day. She had a blast with all of her friends spending the night at one time.
This year she picked out a cool peace sign cake

Present time

One of her favorite gifts was a Snuggie of all thing! Yes....a SNUGGIE! She has been begging for one for a while. Who knew she would be so easily pleased???

Another prized gift was the game Just Dance 2 for the Wii. These girls danced, literally, ALL.NIGHT.LONG! It was hilarious watching all of them!

Check out who's right in the middle of the group showing off her moves!

The next morning....some tired little girls! I finally shut the party down at about 4 am.....couldn't take the noise any longer.

Feeding time at the zoo!

Then right back to dancing!

I can't believe my baby will be 10 years old next week!
