It seems like it has been FOREVER
since I did a normal, fun post.
Finally! Here you go!
I felt that MyHero was well enough
to stay alone for the weekend
if the local kids would check on him.
They did- calling to assure me
that he had NOT burned the house down
I drove to
Little Miss Bright Eyes
(aka Anna Ireland)
in a toddler pageant.
First, I want to say that
my daughter, Mindy Rose, is
NOT A PAGEANT MOM AT ALL.
She did this on a fluke.
Bright Eyes wore a dress that has been
worn at least 7 or 8 times-
including by her older cousin-
WHO HAPPENED TO BE
the FLOWER GIRL at
Mindy Rose's wedding!
Who would have thought
one day her own little girl would be wearing
that same dress?
Anna Ireland was the youngest 2 year old
in the pageant.
She competed in the 2 year old competition.
One was for 'dress up'
and one was for a pageant issued
Tshirt which I took in and
Mindy blinged up.
It was huge on her.
She wears a size 24 months and this was
a size 5 or 6 Tshirt.
Thank goodness for needle/thread/scissors.
I will say she had
THE CUTEST Tshirt there!
Anna, not being versed in
heard the song
"Let It Go" (from Frozen)
playing as they walked onstage.
She LOUDLY sang
LET IHT GO-LET IHT GO-LET IHT GO
over and over again
which made everyone laugh
(except the competing mothers).
We could not take any pictures inside
the room or she would have been eliminated.
But we took some outside.
She was so good-never cross or bratty.
She loved riding the 'elvaator'.
So...how did she do?
She was entered into three categories
(which you had to decide when you got there)
She took FIRST PLACE in all three of them.
I hope I get these right!
Future Model Star/Face(?)
AND she came in 2nd runner up overall.
Pretty good for being a 'newbie'.
Her favorite game in the hallway-
ON THE CHAIR~
OFF THE CHAIR!
There were some little girls that
had lots of make up on.
To her credit,
Mindy did NOT put a
speck of makeup on Anna.
She has the 'high color' that comes
from my side of the family-
ruddy cheeks and light eyes.
The only thing she did was tame her
already curly hair down.
So here you see--
BED HEAD -
Before and After
Now for your laugh of the day-
Mindy Rose decided it would be FUN
to give Anna a
Retro NANA LOOK from the 1990s.
My OTHER SMART MOUTHED DAUGHTER, Tara,
said that she even had the
Nana Pouty Lip thing down pat.
I may cut then ALL out of the will........
