Pageant Day 2012!

Yesterday was the big school pageant day of 2012 and both Kaylyn and Chloe particpated in it. Both girls walked away with 3rd alternate trophies. I'm so proud of both of them!

Chloe strutting her stuff with her hands on her hips! She definitely enjoyed pageant day more this year than she did last year!

So excited when she heard them call her name for the 3rd alternate winner!

Happy to get her trohpy.

Group shot of the top 5 for Chloe's age group. I snuck a pic when the photographer was getting pics for the school yearbook.

Next, it was HOURS of waiting for Kaylyn's group. Luke occupied his time, with Deer Hunter on the iPad.

Ready to get this show on the road.

Kaylyn and Abby

McKenzie, Kaylyn, Chloe

BFF's Shaylan and Kaylyn.....that's a lot of L-L-Lyn's!

Pretty girl!

3 of the top 5 - Gracie(winner), Kaylyn, McKenzie (1st Alternate)

Group shot of top 5 for Kaylyn's group - well the best I could get. By this time of the night, the photographer was tired of the Mama's sneaking in and stealing shots so he made us stay to the side and then everyone scattered. So, anyway there was no getting a good shot of the group. Oh well.

Our friend Shannon and her girls. Kaylyn, Shaylan, and Shaylan's sisters, Shayna, and Shelby. This brave woman fixed ALL of these girls hair for the pageant!

Kaylyn and Shannon.

That's a wrap! It was fun, but glad it's over until next year!

Happy Birthday Kaylyn!!

My Baby Girl turned 11 years old today! Can you believe it??? I can't! She is growing up way too fast and turning into a little lady right before my eyes.

This year she opted to not have a big slumber party (YEEEESSSSS!!) and have a family party at her favorite restaurant, Sumo's. We all had a fun time enjoying some Japanese Cuisine and she loved her party.

Kaylyn and Granny. Waiting on the show to start.

Kaylyn with Nana and Pop.

Chloe's getting to be a big girl too and will be getting a little brother or sister in September!

Do you see Chloe peeking out from behind Paul? That's where she stayed the entire night. The fire at the beginning completely freaked her out and she would NOT rejoin us at the table, even after the chef was finished cooking and had left us. We told her he was gone and there would be no fire and she said, "I'll eat when I get home."

Kaylyn's cake. What can I say? She's MY child. Of course she chose and Alabama Football cake! Roll Tide!!

They sang her the Japanese Birthday Song and the cake finally lured Chloe from her safe place.

Enjoying her birthday song.

That's a wrap. Happy Birthday Baby Girl! Please slow down just a little bit!
